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?
