Wes McLain returned home from the Civil War with little
money - - and less hope. He had even given up on love.
Until he saw her . . . Allie, the blue-eyed girl who had
been called a savage, a wild soul - - and was a prisoner
of what seemed to be a horrible fate.
But when Wes looked into her eyes, he wanted only to free
her, and to take her with him on a journey through the
frontiers of Texas . . .
But Allie had been brutally mistreated for years, and was
now too afraid even to speak.
Wes will have to heal her and it will take more than good
intentions or a few moonlight kisses to win her trust.
And when Allie's finally ready to speak again, she will
tell Wes more than he ever imagined . . . .
