Nikki, what's the hero's profession?

Did the heroine rob banks or stage coaches, rustle cattle, etc.? Where do the main characters first meet?

What happened to her family?

The hero's family owns a ranch that borders. He was going back home to take over after his father died. The heroine robbed coaches and travellers.
I think the heroine's parents were killed by Indians when she was a baby, and her surrogate father found her and raised her. I believe that she was robbing people so they could afford to go to the land that net parents had.
The first meeting between H and h was when she and her father robbed him. He irritated her, so to punish him she had him strip and keft him naked in the desert.


Nikki-pops (nikkicolene) | 68 comments I've been thinking about this book some more, and I think it had a green cover. Also, once h and H were at his sister's house the sister taught h to read and proper manners. There was an English woman who was involved with H who came to visit unannounced, wanting to start up their relationship again. At one point there was some sort of community celebration out get together and h out shot the men.
