Rhine Fontaine is building the successful life he's always dreamed ofA??one that depends upon him passing for White. But for the first time in years, he wishes he could step out from behind the facade. The reason: Eddy Carmichael, the young woman he rescued in the desert. Outspoken, defiant, and beautiful, Eddy tempts Rhine in ways that could cost him everything . . . and the price seems worth paying.
Eddy owes her life to Rhine, but she won't risk her heart for him. As soon as she's saved enough money from her cooking, she'll leave this Nevada town and move to California. No matter how handsome he is, no matter how fiery the heat between them, Rhine will never be hers. Giving in for just one night might quench this longing. Or it might ignite an affair as reckless and irresistible as it is forbidden . . .

"While this romance set in the Old West is somewhat slow to unfold and the ending is surprisingly rushed, Kim Staunton's warm and skilled narration amply compensates. This is the first title in a new historical series by Jenkins. Eddy Carmichael dreams of owning her own restaurant, but when she's robbed and left for dead in the desert, her dreams could be done for. Rhine Fontaine is living a dangerous lie: He's passing as white during Reconstruction. And he's never once regretted his choice--until he meets Eddy, and finally realizes everything he's given up. Staunton's theater experience serves her well in creating a memorable cast of characters. Especially gratifying is her avoidance of equating shrillness with a child's voice.
