SheĂs an outlaw.

HeĂs a preacher.

Both are in need of a miracle.

Sarah Prescott has never known a respectable life. Just a hardscrabble childhood and brothers who taught her to shoot first and ask questions later.

Justin Wells left Boston in disgrace, heading out alone on the dusty trail to Texas. But when the once-respected clergyman encounters a feisty redhead in handcuffs with a dying U.S. Marshal at her side, their journey takes a dramatic turn.

His high-society expectations and SarahĂs outlaw habits clash from the start. With a price on her head and towing an orphaned baby rescued from the brink of starvation, Justin and Sarah make the difficult journey toward Rocky Creek. There, justice will be meted out. Perhaps¨they hope¨with a healthy portion of grace.

Filled with mishaps, laughs, and adventure, Margaret BrownleyĂs inspiring romance will keep readers cheering for Sarah as she struggles to become a true lady.
