Her father has suffered a crippling injury, and Summer is desperate to get the money to pay for surgery that could allow him to walk again. She hears of a reward offered for the capture of a cunning gang of bank robbers, and her years of etiquette training fall by the dusty roadside.What Summer doesnt count on in her quest to capture the bandits is the competition from her familys longtime friend, Jesse Slade. Now a deputy marshal and local hero, Jesse keeps thwarting Summers plans, just like he did when she wore pigtails. She would like nothing more than to use Jesses head for a slingshot target, but soon Summer finds her aim shifting from his head to his heart. Problem is, Jesse is engaged to her sister Violet.For seven years, little Summer Bennett was the burr under Jesses saddle. Now he feels a different irritation as Summer is always on his mind, whether he wants her to be or not. But Summers father expects him to marry Violet, and he wont let him down. So why does Jesse find himself encouraging Summers attentions, and why do sparks fly every time they are together?
