Working as a Harvey Girl waitress in the Arizona Territory was a far cry from Jennie Andrews's high society background, but it couldn't be far enough from the future her father had planned for her -- even if it meant wasting her doctoring skills slicing bacon. As determined as she was beautiful, Jennie would let no one stop her from living her own life. Not even the handsome stranger who kept turning up whenever she seemed to need him.
Detective-turned-rancher Cole Bryant couldn't deny his attraction to the woman he'd first spotted at the depot -- or his curiosity about her. But these days Cole was steering clear of danger. And the more he saw of Jennie Andrews, the more the pretty Eastern miss looked like trouble!
Eastern girl who knows doctoring who is running away from father who is trying to marry her off, Western man who is a detective-turned-rancher wondering what kind of secret Jennie Andrews is hiding, feels like he needs to protect her, but doesn't know from what.
