The rebel is Tom Tolley, ex-Confederate fighter in the bloody Civil War. Returning home to the family farm in the wilds of Arizona, he expects the enmity and the killing to be over. Instead he is met with flying lead!
The heiress is Mary-Ann, indulged only child of millionaire Huey J. Charters. Will her willfulness and fondness for pranks be her downfall, or can they be turned into a feisty courage as events take a gruesome turn?
Sparks fly when Tom, dispossessed of his farm, meets the impish heiress. He is landless -- worse, an unforgiven grayback for whom there is no pardon in the untamed country he calls his home. But the pair are thrown together against a hostile town, a scheming murderer, and the mysterious Jed Carbone, a pitiful drunk who knows more than he's saying ...
"You're hurting, Tom, I can tell," Mary-Ann tells Tom when they are held captive by four ruthless rogues possessed by gold fever. "We've got to get away from this pack of maniacs. We must!"
"It wouldn't work," he mutters. "We both know it. It wouldn't work ..."
The best of the West loaded with five-star suspense, adventure, romance, action, thrills!
