The Wanted Lawman
A.C. Smith, author
Jesse Morgan has been on the run for ten years. Now, he’s a small-town deputy in St. Elmo. No one knows about the bounty on his head, and he’s desperate to keep it that way. But when he meets a feisty reporter, Cecilia Drake, she captures his heart and brings a whole new kind of trouble into his life. She could blow his cover, but she also has him wondering what it would be like to settle down in one spot. What he doesn’t know is that the men from his past are about to catch up to him, and they want to settle their score in blood. Cecilia Drake just wants to finish her last interview for the Littleton Independent before moving to St. Elmo. The subject of her article is Jesse Morgan, the man who helped bring down the notorious Kelley Gang, but he frustrates her when he doesn’t want to give her the story. Jesse is a good-looking charmer with a mysterious side - just the type of man she means to avoid. What she didn’t expect is to discover he lives in St. Elmo. The man who was supposed to be a one-time story might just become a very big part of her life. But Jesse has something that he seems to be hiding, and she means to find out what. But some secrets are better left undiscovered, and Jesse’s secret could get her killed.
