Born in a brothel! Raised by an outlaw! Under the roof of a lecherous uncle! Connie longs to escape. Connie didn't have a last name, but figured Davis would do since he was the closest to a daddy she'd ever had. Davis left his outlaw gold for her in a cave outside Springfield, Missouri. Only problem is, a girl alone can get lost crossing the Arkansas hills and forests when she doesn't know the way. Then her sheriff uncle arrests a handsome fellow from Missouri. He's gonna hang for murder, but that doesn't stop Connie. Brett Norris has never been in so much trouble. He wasn't with the bank robbers, but looks like he'll swing, anyway. Then the sheriff's niece takes him from jail at gunpoint, and he soon learns she isn't a twelve-year-old child like he thought. He can't take an enticing young woman across Arkansas alone, but every time he tries to leave her with a good family, their lives become even more entangled until he faces a shotgun and a preacher. So begins the adventures of Connie Davis and Brett Norris.
