Emma looks down at the crowd from a hanging platform. Her father was framed, and she took the blame for the crime to save him from execution. Where is her beloved husband, Nate? She looks around and sees her husband on a horse, guns blazing. In a whirlwind rescue, she hops on the back of his horse, and they're off, realizing that they will spend the rest of their lives as outlaws.
They capture a wanted man and leave him at the doorstep of the sheriff's office. The sheriff finds Emma and Nate and makes an interesting deal with them: They will capture the bad guys behind the scenes and allow him to take all the credit, this in turn for not being run in. For this couple, ahead lies a life of excitement and passionate love.

For such a short story it wasn't too bad. It's a clean romance so if you are looking for something short and clean, give this a try. It's not great, but not awful either.
