USA Today–bestselling author Nan Ryan draws readers into the wildly passionate, suspenseful tale of a woman at the mercy of the rugged man guiding her through the New Mexico desert
Shreveport. 1865. Elizabeth Montbleau is found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. But the Natchez-belle-turned-Rebel won't be facing the firing squad alone. Another prisoner—a convicted Yankee spy—has been condemned along with her. Knowing that this will be her last night on earth, Elizabeth gives in to the desire the sensual stranger awakens in her.
The next morning, fate steps in, and both their lives are spared. But they're destined to meet again . . .
West Quarternight has never forgotten the red-haired beauty and the fleeting night of passion they shared. The last place he expects to find her is on a treacherous journey across the merciless desert. Now, as Elizabeth's guide, he will lead her on a quest for her missing husband . . . and an elusive, legendary treasure. No longer a memory, Elizabeth is now a prize that West intends to win, even though he swears he will never love her.
