Desperate

Trussed up in tweed and a suitable righteous manner, Jake Reed hoped he'd pass as a schoolmaster long enough to elide the gunman on his trail. But with Cecilia Summertree, the prettiest-and the nosiest--schoolmarm in the West dodging his every move, he was having a hard time keeping his mind on the classroom....

Cecelia knew exactly what she'd always wanted. The freedom to do what she pleased, when she pleased. Though in all her reckoning she'd never considered meeting someone like Jake Reed. A man determined to teach her that there were a few important things missing in her life, and one of them was him!

Cecilia Summertree wants an independant life away from the ranch. She wants to hold the job of schoolteacher in Annsboro.

Jake Reed is on the run from a man set on killing him. Then he meets up with Eugene Pendergast in a saloon. Guess who gets shot?

Pendergast is supposed to become the schoolteacher in the little burg of Annsboro.
Cici is very suspicious of Pendergast, he doesn't look like her idea of a schoolteacher. Besides she is losing her room at the boardinghouse to Pendergast.
For being the daughter of a rich rancher she is more than willing to work to keep from returning to the ranch.
She dreams of more adventure and refinement away from the Summertree ranch.

Her hilarious incounters with Pendergast and her conniving to prove him an imposter leads to unplanned, bumbling results.
And a hot kiss or two.

Cici also helps Dolly, the boarding house owner attain her hearts desire with Buck, who has been following Cici around for years now.

She just can't get anyone to pay any attention to her accusations that Pendergast may be dangerous. Yet he sure stirs up some funny, unwanted emotions in her.

As Dolly is about to get married, Rosalyn Pendergast show up in Texas from Philadelphia to find her brother Gene and gets abducted by Gunter.
What hilarious action in a great story.
