True McCormick needed a hero, so she hired one—a greenhorn named Seth Atherton, a man with foolhardy dreams of gunsmoke and justice.
She's grown up wild and free among the Texas Rangers and Harvey Girls of the untamed West. Now True McCormick was a famous published author, writing Wild West adventures under the name "Granite Westwind." But trouble had a way of riding double in True's life—her publisher wanted to send Granite Weestwind on tour! She had two choices. She could 'fess up to her true identity—or hire someone to play the part of the lightening-fast gunslinger. . . .
She found her man in a Galveston jailhouse. Seth Atherton was a hardware store clerk with foolhardy dreams of gunsmoke and justice. But True was determined to turn this handsome young greenhorn into a larger-than-life hero. Filling the boots of a legend wasn't easy. Especially when the bullets began to fly—and True began to fall in love with the hero she created . . . .
