A riotously hilarious and passion-filled adventure of historical romance in the Wild, Wild West…

The prim and prudish Katherine Simmons, a proper Boston schoolteacher, never expected to step foot in those godforsaken lands of the Wild, Wild West…let alone figuring out how to hide a dead body…

Katherine Simmons liked her life the way it was – predictable, boring, but safe. Innocent of the more earthly pleasures in the world, Katherine has never lost her head to passion and intends to keep it that way. That is, until this puritanical schoolteacher inherits a saloon – or what some might call a brothel – in the Wild West town of Silver Ridge. Refusing to step down from a challenge, Katherine leaves for Silver Ridge, with the plan of bringing some of Boston’s morality to the outlaw West.

But when the Mayor of Silver Ridge dies in the throes of passion right there in her saloon, Katherine tries to sneak his body out and is caught by Travis Ryland, a sexy outlaw. When the townspeople of Silver Ridge see them together, both Travis and Katherine are accused of murder and must work together to prove their innocence.

Travis Ryland expected a little trouble when he was hired by Silver Ridge to put an end to the payroll robberies at the mine. A little trouble, but mostly a simple job for a man with simple talents. What he didn’t expect was a beautiful schoolteacher from Boston to turn his life…and his heart into chaos.

Katherine may be innocent, but she’s willing to learn…and lucky for her, there’s a sexy outlaw more than happy to educate the schoolteacher…
