Six Sentence Sunday

On the run from a murderous uncle, Katie Beaumont married outlaw Ben Cready the day before he was supposed to hang. They shared one night of explosive passion and for six months, she'd believed herself a widow. Now Ben is back to claim what's his, and that includes the sweet bride he'd never been able to forget.

Then, she thought of Ben. She couldn’t live without him. To let her uncle take her away with him would be a worse kind of death than trying to escape and getting shot for the attempt. She had to try. Getting back to Ben was worth anything, even her very life. 

She reached into the wagon, grabbed the tin box, and swung it with all her might.
