Prudence Agatha Winthrop is a proper Bostonian lady determined to go West. She’s on a mission to find her mother who she had thought dead these many years. Nothing is going to stop her, not her wealthy father, not the simpering man who fancies himself her future husband and least of all the infamous gunslinger Zac Stewart who warned the Boston Ladies Club of the perils of the West.
Zac Stewart can’t believe that the Bostonian spitfire has actually headed West or that he’s agreed to go after her and return her home. It doesn’t take long to catch up with her and in a saloon of all places where the owner thinks that she’s there to hire on as a prostitute. He saves her from one mess only to find her in another until she gets them into a dilemma that has only one way out… marriage.
As much as Prudence tries to ignore her attraction to the gunslinger, she can’t ignore how his kisses stir her passion and touch her heart. But love is hard for her to accept and it takes a daring act on Zac’s part to prove he’d go to any length to show how much he loves her.
