The Loner didn't just bust out of jail, he busted out twice. The third time might be the charm—or a bullet in the belly. He didn't want much—just the chance to drift out of Texas into New Mexico Territory. That's when the Loner discovered there was a price on his head.
A victim of mistaken identity, he broke out of Hell Gate Prison a few years back. Now, he's behind bars again, until a sheriff's love-struck daughter decides to come to his aid and a beautiful bounty hunter—who also has eyes for the Loner—joins in.
Riding out of the frying pan and into the fire of a land war, the Loner has all kinds of murderous cutthroats on his trail. But he doesn't have any problem with women—as long as they're willing to ride on the wild side once the lead starts flying.
