Some know him as the Colonel. Some know him as the Most Revered Archbishop Raines. But from California to Colorado, everyone who meets C.P. Raines thinks he's the most charming, daring, and greedy swindler ever to ply the frontier. Now, this handsome devil, with an aversion to work and a God-given talent for fakery, has found a little piece of heaven-in a desolate corner of Nevada. Pearly gates was once a booming mining town. Now it's a ghost town where a tough-as-nails divorcee holds down the fort while holding out hope that somehow the town she owns lock, stock, and barrel might be worth something to someone. It is. Because when C.P. Raines arrives in Pearly gates, he sees the potential right away. With a woman who's as sharp, sexy, and daring as he is, Raines has a plan to make gold out of nothing in Pearly gates. And by the time they get done, the boom they ignite will shake, rattle, and roll the frontier-if it doesn't kill them first.
