What if the bank robber she’s after is the childhood sweetheart she might not be over?

After Regina, longing to be an investigator, spots a pattern in far-flung bank robberies, she wins approval to go undercover at three rodeos to find out more. The first day of the first rodeo, she runs into – literally – her childhood sweetheart, Chapin. And has the horrifying realization that W.C. Johnson, one of three prime suspects who fit the robbery pattern, is her Chapin -- William Chapin Johnson.

To keep Reggie from blabbing his name in that first instant, Chapin grabs her and kisses her. One word and she can ruin what he’s been working for.

Chapin is trying to make a comeback on the QT. He’d been on the cusp of stardom as a bronc rider until a nasty injury and botched recovery leave experts saying he’s done. As far as the rodeo world’s concerned he’s retired and living happily on his ranch. But he can’t let it go. Needing time to work his way back in, he’s been rodeoing far from home, in unfamiliar events, and under the name Bill Johnson.

Now, to keep from being outed, he has to take Reggie into his confidence. But even after all these years he knows her too well not to realize she’s keeping a secret from him. What on earth is she up to? Will Chapin find out what Reggie’s doing? Can Reggie trust Chapin with proof he’s not the bank robber? How will Chapin react if he finds out he’s a suspect? Can they overcome the issues that drove them apart in the first place? Who the heck is robbing banks on the rodeo circuit and can he (or she) be stopped?
