McKenzie Kathryn Calhoun doesn't mean to rob the bank in Promise, Kansas. But when she accidentally does, she doesn't think - she runs. Suddenly the raggedy tomboy has the money to make a life for herself . . . if she doesn't get caught. But it's just her luck to find herself sitting across the stagecoach from a dangerously handsome, gun-toting preacher who seems to see through her bravado to the desperate woman beneath.
John Lee Brandon figures that the feisty redhead is running from something. A hired gun, he's masquerading as a reverend on his way to a mining town called Heaven - and it will take a shrewder lady than Macky to pull the wool over his eyes. But when the town welcomes them as "Preacher Adams" and his wife, he's caught in a charade of respectable wedded bliss. And the two of them are headed for a showdown between lies and love.
