Jessica Landon was on a train bound for the Washington territory when masked bandits stole her carpetbag containing all the money she had in the world. Left with nothing but her fury, she set out after the thieves herself, without consulting Adam Sern, the handsome railroad detective who'd failed to stop the robbery in the first place. When sanity--and Adam--finally caught up with her, Jessica admitted she'd need his help to catch the outlaws... but when Adam soothed her with warm kisses, comforted her with his tender touch, and loved away her worries, she wondered if she was about to lose her heart as well as her fortune!
Adam had no choice-if he wanted to find the robbers, he'd have to take Jessica with him, for the green-eyed spitfire had seen their faces. Not that she'd be reluctant to go--she was hell-bent on retrieving her damned carpetbag. As they joined forces and headed west, Adam wondered if his days as a loner had come to an end, for once he'd sampled his beautiful partner's satin kisses and discovered her seductive innocence, he wanted to keep her by his side and treasure her love forever!
