Can such a kind-hearted lady really be an outlaw?
Deputy Marshal Brett Wickham is ready to retire from law enforcement and settle down on the ranch left to him and his younger brother, Taylor. But when Taylor is killed in a bank robbery, Brett pins his badge back on and goes hunting for the Salinger gang. Then a bear attack leaves him badly wounded and lands him right in the middle of the outlaw’s hideout with his nemesis, Lottie Sallinger, caring for him.
The woman who tends to Brett’s wounds claims to be Anna McFarland. He’s sure that’s an alias, although she sure seems too sweet and innocent to be an outlaw. But looks can be deceiving. When his heart is drawn to her, Brett fights the attraction. There no way he can fall for the woman who helped kill his brother. Can he do his job when everything in him wants Lottie to be innocent?
