Her Secret Was Out...

Uley Kirkland was in a pickle. Nobody in Tin Cup, Colorado, knew that beneath her cloth cap and mining togs, she was all woman. Nobody except Aaron Brown, the handsome newcomer who, thanks to her, was now locked up in the town jail.

In a few days, Aaron would be swinging from a hangman's noose. And it was all Uley's fault. If she hadn't tackled him with a flying leap out of nowhere, he wouldn't be in this fix. Or wasting his last days on earth daydreaming about how pretty Uley would look if she ever got out of those pants and into a dress....

My Review:

I love the premise of this book -- Uley's deception is central to the plot and kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for the big reveal. Her dilemma becomes Aaron's and their lives are suddenly meshed in a web of lies even while sparks fly. Their tender romance is doomed to heartache both from their own stubbornness along with their circumstances. Bedford did a masterful job of drawing out a compelling story with redemption at the heart of it. Stellar inspirational romance.
