Welcome to....Author Maggie Carpenter

Running for her life, green-eyed, copper-haired, Violet Parker has just arrived in Brownsville, a tiny town northwest of San Francisco, and as she climbs out she's astonished to see a ruggedly handsome man naked from the waist up. The sight of his muscled arms is enough to make her weak at the knees! As he approaches a hot blush creeps across her face, and she can scarcely believe it when he introduces himself as the Sheriff.

Cooper Dalton runs his town as he sees fit. Justice is quickly administered and strangers scrutinized. A misbehaving female might well find herself over his knee, and though he's drawn to the beautiful young woman, his instinct tells him she's harboring a secret.

He's right! 

A dastardly detective is determined to see her behind bars. Twice he has had her in his clutches. Twice she has escaped. Knowing she might not be so lucky a third time, she's decided to hide in a small town under the name Rose Hamilton

But he is hot on her trail! No-one is going to stop him! He is going to drag her back to the city!

His Town. His Laws. His Justice.
I made this just a little bit ago, he said, moving across to a small stove in the corner. I think youll like it. I have a special way of brewin. I even have china cups.

Im impressed. How did that happen?
I often have folks in for coffee, and one of the ladies decided I should have somethin decent to serve it in. Here you go. Have a seat.
Thank you, Sheriff, she said, settling into the chair in front of his desk.
To her surprise he walked directly in front of her and perched on the edge. His bare chest and bulging biceps were alarmingly close, and they werent just making it difficult to think clearly. She found herself imagining how dreamy it would be to rest against his muscled body, and have his arms wrapped around her.
I reckon youll be doin some shoppin, he began, breaking into her salacious thoughts.
What makes you say that?
You arrived with only one bag. Surely youll be needin some more clothes and shoes and what not.
I have a special way of packing, she said, tilting her head to the side and holding his gaze, and that bag may look small, but it holds a great deal more than you might think.
Is that right?
It is, Sheriff.
Does that mean youve had to pack often? Did you and your husband travel?
We did, and he didnt like me bringing more than one suitcase. Im used to traveling without a lot of baggage.
Huh. What line of business was he in?
Sheriff, she said, rising to her feet and standing eye to eye, why are you asking me all these questions?
