In 1903 Texas Ranger Luke Palmer arrives in Brenham, Texas, with one goal -- to capture the gang of outlaws led by Frank Corner. Undercover as a telephone repairman, he uses his days working the lines to search, not realizing there's another pair of eyes watching him. Georgie Gail, switchboard operator and bird-lover, observes the new telephone man with growing suspicion--and attraction. Why does he spend more time shooting guns than stringing telephone wire? Soon, Palmer is forced to take this alluring troublemaker into his confidence and unwittingly puts her in harm's way. The closer he comes to the gang, the further she works her way into his heart -- and into trouble. Soon it's more than just love that's on the line.
