A woman stole Joseph Wade’s heart–and his mother’s priceless diamond necklace. She’s elusive and savvy to the cruel ways of the world. No matter what, he’s always a step behind her, but when he’s the victim of a bank robbery, he sees that in the West, men can say, do, or be anything they want. When his father dies and his presence at home is requested, he turns his back on the law and sets his heart on revenge.

Lucy Hawley sees that Joe isn’t a criminal, despite his best attempts. Underneath his somewhat fumbling–and so far lucky–robberies, there’s a confused man. A good one too, if only he can get back on the right path. She’d give her heart to someone like that, but not if he can’t forgive himself for his past mistakes and change his own future.
