Jessie Stuart landed herself an outlaw. At least that is what she thinks. She locks him in her root cellar. She knows she did.
Yet before morning he falls through her doorway when she opens it to strang thuddings. She has landed a wounded, masculine, sexy male and it gets more complicated when she dresses his wound and bares his muscular chest to her questing fingers.
WOW! Josiah Tucker is the most dangerous man she has ever met.
Except for those no-good scalawags bunked out by her barn. Lord, what to do when the shooting starts.
The inevetible escape happens [you won't believe how] and boy, do they take off. Do they finally get rescued? It seems like it but then they get caught in an unplanned wedding.
It just keeps getting better and better. Suddenly we have gun-runners to contend with and a rotten traitor. Colonel Kit Carson is head of the army situated a couple of days ride away.
Vasquez is coming up from Mexico to take possession of the army guns being smuggled to him and Sante Fe is about 3 weeks away traveling by wagon. Yup! several seductions later our couple arrives in Santa Fe but then things again began to happen that are a bit unexpected. Sure keeps you on the edge of your seat.
