It was a town whose reputation matched its name—a place where the sheriff had been shot dead and outlaws ran wild. But Jace Madison plans to change all that. Ever since his fiancee was killed by stagecoach robbers, he’s devoted his life to bringing law and order to the Wild West. He has no time for female companionship, especially not with a little hellcat who looks more like a boy than a girl and is equally proficient with a whip or a gun. Yet love has a way of sneaking up on a man: Sammie Preston is an armful of trouble even Jace can’t tame, and she is about to get the drop on his heart.
