Free after spending seven years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, Robert Truman aims to balance the scales of justice on the man who sent him there-Luke Wheeler. His quest doesn't include falling for the one woman who will lead him to his quarry, but Sally's courage in the face of her fear touches his soul. ...

The sudden demise of her husband after selling their farm and just about everything they owned to travel west on the Oregon Trail, has left her in a bind. Dare she ask Cooper Jerome, recently returned from the War of the States, if he would put his life on hold for, say, five months to drive her wagon, and that doesn't include his return trip. At this point, she's out of options.
Bushwhacked by the corrupt lawman Walker Dodge, Dalton loses his money, his horse, his gun and very nearly his life.
Recuperating in the dead-end town of Harmony, he hears rumors of a fabulous treasure hidden nearby and, even with Walker closing in on him, that's enticing enough to risk staying. And then there's Misty Valdez, the one person who claims to know where the treasure is, and she entices him even more!
But the price of her help may be too high for Dalton. With time running out, can he avoid Misty's trap and find the treasure before the gun-toting Walker catches up with him?
