Hoping to cool off a twenty-five year old feud between two neighbouring families, Cassie Stuart only succeeds in pouring kerosene on the flames. Both sides have warned her to get out of Texas pronto…or they will burn her father’s ranch to the ground. What Cassie needs is a peacemaker- but she ends up with a widow maker instead.
He is called Angel – a ruggedly handsome hired gun with eyes as black as sin. Unwanted and unwelcomed by his ungrateful employer, he would as soon leave Cassie to fend for herself. But a stubborn sense of duty – and desire to taste the sweetness of her kiss – steels Angel’s resolve to make Cassie want him, come hell or high water…and for more than his gun alone.
Jocelyn Fleming was a feisty, flame-haired aristocrat — newly widowed after a shockingly brief marriage to an elderly British lord. Wealthy and titled, yet aching with the pain of unexplored desire, her restless heart led her from polite London society to the perilous beauty of the untamed American West.
Colt Thunder was a rebel, a loner. Impossibly handsome, brutally unpredictable, the Cheyenne blood running through his veins burned hotter than the blistering Arizona sun.
In a bold and merciless land, their vastly different worlds collided — the wild desert stallion and the untouched English rose — igniting an unstoppable firestorm of frontier passion that threatened to consume them both!
When she overheard him refuse to marry her, she swore to make him suffer any way she could. But Chase Summers wasn’t a man to be trifled with. Even though beautiful Jessie Blair could hold her own against any man in the territory – and was running the ranch by herself after land grabbers had murdered her father- Chase Summers drove her to a fury of frustration.
In her innocence, she did not understand how very much he desired her. Her beauty haunted him, her arrogance enraged him, she defied and tormented him . . .until his passion spilled over into violence. Yet nothing could soften her stubborn heart, it seemed, but to tame a man’s pride. And no woman tamed Chase Summers.
Yet when fortune called him halfway across the world, he realized how empty his world was without her. And the girl who had become a woman in his arms, knew at last in her heart where her destiny lay.
