She’s the lovely young fortune teller who reads tarot cards at Wichita’s Scarlet Lady saloon. He’s a freelance gun with a chilling reputation. When Sparkle LaFleur asks Rafe Conley to pose as her husband one afternoon, she never imagines the seemingly harmless ruse might take on a life of its own...or that she’ll be kidnapped by outlaws and find herself drawn into the very center of Rafe’s dark and deadly world.
This is Old West adventure at its bawdiest and boldest. Caught up in a vicious cycle of violence, betrayal and retribution, Rafe and Sparkle must each defeat demons from the past and summon the courage to fight for a future together. But can they truly escape the forces that have shaped their lives on the wooly frontier? Is love unyielding enough to forever silence a six gun?
