McKenzie Kathryn Calhoun didn't mean to rob the bank in Promise, Kansas. But when she accidentally did, she didn't think, she ran. Suddenly the ragged tomboy the town rejected had the money to make a life for herself . . . if she didn't get caught. But it was just her luck to find herself sitting across the stagecoach from a dangerously handsome, gun-toting preacher who seemed to see through her bravado to the desperate woman beneath.
John Lee Brandon figured that the feisty redhead was running from something. A hired gun, he was masquerading as a new reverend on his way to a mining town called Heaven -- and it would take a shrewder lady than Macky to pull the wool over his eyes. But when the town welcomed them as "Preacher Adams" and his wife, he was caught in a charade of respectable wedded bliss. And the two of them were headed for a showdown between lies and love.
