When Chase Hunter rode into Crystal Springs, Arizona Territory, with his pistols tied around his thigh, he was labeled an outlaw--a title he allows to remain while he tries to discover who stole the army's rifles and killed his brother...if he can keep the new schoolteacher, Kathryne "Katie" O'Rourke from stumbling into the middle of it all.

Accused of being a thief's accomplice, Kathryne journeys to Crystal Springs and her sister, hoping to escape the scandal she left behind. She has a history of falling for the wrong men and vows to stay away from them, but that promise is hard to keep, especially when Chase comes to her rescue time after time.

Katie can't help falling in love with Chase, but will she risk another scandal to stand up for him? Can the wrong man be the right one?

"Take my hand!"

He appeared out of nowhere beside the stagecoach though he didn't look like her idea of salvation. From his black hat to his solid black clothing to his ebony steed, he resembled every bandit, every outlaw, every desperado she'd read about in the books she loved so well. The dull glow of the pearl-handled pistol in the holster added to the illusion and yet, she wasn't afraid of him. In all reality, Kathryne was more afraid of dying on this high mountain road than of this handsome stranger.

And then he was gone. But only for a moment.

"Take my hand!"

"For pity's sake, stop the horses!"

"No time," he yelled over the rattle of the stage. His eyes never left her face as he extended his hand. "Trust me."

The trimmed black goatee and mustache on his face did not inspire trust--he looked wicked enough to be Satan himself--however, the kindness in his soft gray eyes gave her hope.

Kathryne reached out to grab his hand as the coach veered and scraped against the rock wall, but grasped empty air. In the next instant, a startled scream escaped her as she lost her balance. Kathryne pitched forward just as he wrapped one strong arm around her waist and snatched her from certain death.
