And Jolie, standing under the hot sun with a noose around her neck, surely was. But something — the defiant lift of her chin or her frightened blue-green eyes — had caught the attention of Daniel Beckham. He stopped the hanging by invoking the town’s wedding ordinance and married the pretty “outlaw” on the spot.So Jolie’s hide was saved…only her pride was wounded! Daniel didn’t believe she was innocent, and he barely spoke on the drive out to his farm. Worse still, two desperados were on her trail, and she didn’t dare confide her troubles to her new husband. Yet under the star-splashed Western sky, Jolie trembled whenever this rugged giant of a man came near.
