Dime Novel Hero, A
by : Maureen McKade

"After capturing the man responsible for his father's death, Jake Cordell, bounty hunter and lawyer, is returning home to Chaney, Wyoming. He wants nothing more than to find his favorite saloon girl, Maggie, and to trade in his reputation as a gun slinging hero for that of a respectable rancher. When he arrives in town, he learns that Maggie is dead, Kit Thornton has bought his ranch, and the hated image of a dime novel hero, created by a certain T.K. Thorne, is not easily forgotten. To Kit Thornton, ever since he stood up for her when she was a plump, bookish kid, Jake Cordell was what every hero should be. So, it seemed only natural to record his adventures in dime novels and to adopt Jake's son, Johnny, after his mother Maggie died in childbirth. Kit is reluctant to tell Jake that Johnny is his son because Maggie told her Jake would never settle down, an opinion Kit begins to share after witnessing several bouts of Jake's drinking. Kit gets her friend Freda, a German widow, to take Jake in as a border even though Freda can't stand drinking. Jake wants to buy the ranch from Kit, but she refuses to sell Johnny's birthright. Jake teaches Johnny to ride, and Kit and Jake begin to fall in love, rediscovering the friendship they shared as two lonely teenagers. But what will Jake do when he discovers Johnny is his son? And can he ever forgive Kit for being the infamous T.K. Thorne?"
