A WANTED MAN
Miller pens another winning western romance about an honorable gunslinger and a bold schoolteacher -- two lonely hearts on the run from their past who find a love that sets them free. This spin-off of The Man From Stone Creek will more than satisfy Miller's fans and draw in new readers seeking a realistic, powerful western.
The last thing he has time for is a romance with the town schoolmarm. Lark Morgan is terrified that Rowdy has come to return her to her abusive ex-husband. She plans to flee when she finds shelter in the strangest place, Rowdy's arms. It's only a matter of time before secrets are exposed, Rowdy is jailed and Lark's husband finds her. But love conquers all, and rescue comes from a surprising source. (HQN, Jul., 252 pp., $24.95)
