Maddie Campbell was not your ordinary thief. A widow and mother, she liked to think her wealthy victims were merely “donating” to the many others of the mining community who had been left with nothing. Maddie was quite good at what she did … until a former lawman arrived in Eden to investigate the recent spate of crimes. He didn’t need to say a word; his piercing gaze arrested her on the spot. Despite her efforts to throw him off track, he was determined to draw out all her secrets in the most exquisite ways–” soft caresses, passionate kisses, and exploration of her most intimate places. But when confronted with the truth, would he choose love or the law?
