Title: Undercover Outlaw

Author: Gini Rifkin

Genre: Historical Western Romance

Book Blurb:

Jesse is determined to track down the man who killed his brother in cold blood. Impersonating an outlaw, his quest for justice becomes a living, breathing, part of his soul. Trinity is heading to Denver to escape her vicious guardians. When her stagecoach is robbed, Jesse kidnaps her, and all her well-laid plans collide with his, leaving them both in danger. Trapped in Prairie Ridge by a flood, Jesse and Trinity's feelings soon run as high and wild as the river. When Jesse is accused of murder, Trinity stands by his side, and they take on the town's tyrannical leader. As the city cowers in fear, help comes from an unexpected source, but can it save Jesse from a hangman's noose?


Jesse grasped one of her hands and kissed the palm. “Tell Sol what’s happened,” he ordered, “and do exactly as he says.” Then he let her hand slip from his, and his expression hardened. “And don’t come back here.”

She knew his harsh words were his way of protecting her. But not seeing him or knowing he was all right would be a far worse fate than anything else she could imagine.

Footsteps echoed at her back.

“Whoever heard of a female reporter anyway?” Jesse mocked loudly. “You women should stay at home where you belong and leave the running of the world to us men.”

“Like you men are doing such a great job. Besides, you’re big news, cowboy. And we women have only begun to take our place in the thick of things. You might as well get accustomed to having me around.”

Jesse balled his hands into fists, and he wore an expression of frustration—her message had gotten through loud and clear. On impulse she mouthed the words, I love you.

“Sheriff, get this female out of here. And in the future, I demand you keep her away from me.” His voice was cold, but she hoped the fire in his eyes spoke of remembered passion, and not anger.

Sheriff Langford grabbed her elbow and escorted her non-too-gently away from the cell.
