When Miranda Hunt sees the classified ad for an heiress to the legendary Last Chance Ranch, she knows assuming the identity of Annie Beckman is the perfect cover. As one of the finest agents for the Pinkerton Detective Agency, Miranda has been tasked with apprehending the Phantomùan elusive and notorious train robber thought to be hiding on the sprawling ranch.
But she isnÆt the only one at the ranch with something to hide. Wells Fargo detective Jeremy Taggart is working undercover as well. Their true identities may be a secret, but it is impossible for Jeremy and Miranda to hide the sparks flaring between them.
Neither is about to let romance interfere with such a huge case. Besides, Miranda hasnÆt removed Jeremy from her list of suspects yet. The closer they get to uncovering the identity of the Phantom, the more dangerous he getsùand no one on the ranch is safe.
The longer Miranda and Jeremy spend working together, the harder it becomes to keep their feelings in check. Their careersùand their livesùdepend on solving this case. Love will just have to wait.
ô. . . an absolute delight. I spent the whole book reading with a grin on my face.ö ùMary Connealy, best-selling author of Petticoat Ranch (for Dawn Comes Early)
