The Saint and the Sinner . . .
Quaker Maggie Holland wielding a gun? Unthinkable! Yet there she was, at the butt end of a rifle, fending off desperadoes – all to rescue the most tattered specimen of masculinity God had set down on His bountiful earth! Still, she couldn't neglect the needy; she vowed to mend the wounded fugitive.
Instead, haunted drifter Jake Cordell forever shattered Maggie's peace. He brought violence to her doorstep . . . and an unfamiliar pounding to her heart. As his stark virility teased her innocent senses, the brute code he lived by tormented her soul. Could the love she gently planted take root in a heart so hardened? Could it even survive the gunslinger's next showdown?
