Reissue originally published in 2010
Alison Carter wrote the definitive book on legendary American hero, U.S. Marshal Silas Quinn, who survived the infamous 1898 shootout at the Red Rock Saloon only to witness the murder of his wife, Melody, by the brutal outlaw Jamie “Kid” Gallagher in the desolate Arizona hills.
Now “Quinn,” a big-budget Hollywood movie, is being made on location in Jubilation, Arizona, and Alison’s the historical consultant, making sure the production team gets the story right.
Then a too-handsome man in a cowboy hat claims to be the great-grandson of Kid Gallagher—and oh, by the way, Alison and the rest of the world have gotten the facts of America’s best-known legend completely wrong…
Military veteran A.J. Gallagher hasn’t had an easy life, but hard work and a return to his large, supportive family in his Alaskan hometown has helped him earn ten solid years of sobriety—one quiet, uneventful day at a time. Only now A.J.’s being haunted by the ghost of his beloved great-grandfather, Jamie “please don’t call him ‘Kid’” Gallagher, who wants A.J. to set the record straight—Quinn was the real villain of the legend. But the only person who can see or hear Jamie is A.J., and with his history of mental illness, he’s unwilling to believe his own eyes. Still, A.J. travels to the movie set with his invisible sidekick, hoping that doing so will end his “hallucinations.” But one conversation with brilliant and funny Professor Alison Carter is all it takes to make sparks fly.
When Alison witnesses an altercation that puts her life in danger, she’s targeted by ruthless criminals who want her dead. And A.J.—with Jamie’s very real help—has the military training and skill-set to keep her alive…
After childhood plans to become the captain of a starship didn’t pan out, Suzanne Brockmann took her fascination with military history, her respect for the men and women who serve, her reverence for diversity, and her love of storytelling, and explored brave new worlds as a New York Times bestselling romance author.
Over the past twenty-five years she has written fifty-seven novels, including her award-winning Troubleshooters series about Navy SEAL heroes and the women—and sometimes men—who win their hearts.
In addition to writing books, Suzanne Brockmann produces feature-length movies: the award-winning romantic comedy The Perfect Wedding, which she co-wrote with her husband, Ed Gaffney, and their son, Jason; the thriller Russian Doll; and the soon-to-be-released rom-com Analysis Paralysis. She is currently in post-production for Out of Body, a rom-com with paranormal elements.
She has also co-written two YA novels with her daughter Melanie, and is the publisher and editor of an m/m line of category romances called Suzanne Brockmann Presents.
In 2018, Suz was given the Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award from the Romance Writers of America. Her latest novel is SEAL Camp, available in print and e-book from Suzanne Brockmann Books, and in audio from Blackstone Audio.

This is my second time reading Infamous and I have to admit I enjoyed it a lot!
Historian author Alison Carter is hired by a Hollywood production company to remain on site for the filming to make sure the costumes, vernacular, and settings are accurate for their big budget film, Quinn.
When a handsome cowboy blows into town insisting Alison’s facts are more like fiction, she thinks it’s all a ruse to stir up trouble, but the guy is cute, so maybe she could look into his suppositions…?
A.J. Gallagher doesn’t want to leave his Alaskan home and travel thousands of miles to the Nevada desert just to stop the filming of a movie, but his great-grandfather insists— and since he’s dead…
When A.J. gets to Jubilation, he’s bowled over by the smart and funny Alison. The more he tries to correct her misinterpretations of the past, the deeper he falls for her beauty, even if she doesn’t believe a word he’s saying. Unless, he tells her the ghost of Jamie ‘Kid‘ Gallagher is guiding his steps- and how crazy does that sound- there’s no real way of proving the story didn’t happen the way she thinks.
Then Alison witnesses something she wasn’t supposed to see and her life is endangered, forcing A.J., with the help of Jamie, to find the criminals before he loses the woman he’s fallen in love with.
Jamie is a hoot; popping in with his version of the infamous gunfight at the Red Rock Saloon, and making a quick disappearance when his great-grandson decides to woo the fair Alison. He also makes a good amateur detective when a man is murdered near the film set.
If you need an entertaining read and enjoy a sassy ghost, this one’s for you!
