Life for Elizabeth Stone was going smoothly until her mother died and her father married a woman she could barely tolerate and the man she’s been in love with for years disappeared. Now he’s back in town, but only for a short visit, but he still thinks of her as a kid sister. What will it take to make him notice her as a woman?
Tainted by his undercover work, Pinkerton agent Stephen Randall wants what is best for his childhood friend—and it isn’t him. Brushing off Beth’s advances seems like the best plan until she is mistaken for a female outlaw wanted for robbery and murder. They must work together to find her nemesis and clear her name, and the only way to do that is for Beth to become a Pinkerton agent herself—and marry Stephen.
With the case—and their attraction—heating up, will Stephen realize his love for her in time to save her?
