Wanted: Dead or alive. (Alive preferred, just sayin’.)
When US Marshal Sam Dunaway comes to Kenton Valley, Texas, to prepare for a murder trial, the last person he expects to run into is his late wife Celine. The same woman who ran off with his life savings and supposedly died in a boardinghouse fire.
Plain Jane seamstress Selma Nelson is surely a dead ringer for Celine. Rest assured, the demure dressmaker has a secret or three. Is there a chance Sam will understand if and when she comes clean with the truth? More likely, he’ll likely lock her away forever.
What a dilemma. Either Sam sets aside his principles and arrests her or lose the love of his life. One thing for certain, he can’t deny the resurgence of passion that’s fanning the smoldering embers of their former love into a roaring inferno.
