With her trademark combination of intrigue, adventure and sensual romance, New York Times bestselling author Janelle Taylor crafts novels that hold readers spellbound time and time again, now, she recreates the rugged grandeur of the old southwest in her lushest, most romantic love story yet.
Feisty and beautiful Maggie Malone is determined to earn her livelihood as a private detective—a daunting profession unheard of for a woman on her own in the wild West. And when her stepfather asks her to help his son escape the hangman's noose for a bank robbery he didn't commit, she rises to the challenge. The Yuma Prison break will place Maggie's own life in jeopardy—and leave her with grave doubts about whether she's done right or terribly wrong...
Sworn to help clear her stepbrother's name by tracking down the men who framed him, Maggie meets Hawk Reynolds. An ex-Texas Ranger and half-blood Cheyenne, Hawk is on a vengeance quest to find his parents' killers—the same desperadoes Maggie is seeking. Destiny draws Hawk and Maggie to each other and to the stirring of an unbidden, irresistible desire. Together, they will ride into Tombstone and into a crossfire of lies, double dealings, and searing betrayal as they search for answers that will sow the seeds of suspicion between them—and arouse a passion fated to explode beneath the bright desert sky.
