Sheriff Matthew Knight is the perfect hero for Andrea Jackson's next dime novel, or so she thinks. His outlaw busting exploits may be larger than life, but the man behind the badge is more complicated than she bargained for. What's a writer to do when she needs a story, and her scowling subject is reluctant to open up? Boston-bred heiress Henrietta never imagined she would race a horse one thousand miles across open land disguised as a boy. But then, she never believed her parents would arrange a marriage for her she would have to run away to escape. However, there's no escape from her toughest competition, expert rider and champion wrangler Comanche Jones. She needs that prize money - almost as much as she finds herself wanting him...Stranded in a town called Hell Gate without a penny to her name, Isabelle Milton is relieved that circumstances haven't forced her into something truly desperate not yet, anyway. She's run out of options when gorgeous Lucas Warring rides into town like the answer to a prayer.
