Antonie Ramirez could ride and shoot as well as any man-
and better than most. Now, the headstrong beauty had come
to Texas to honor her fatherâ€™s last words: find the cattle
rancher named Royal Bancroft and repay him for saving
lives long ago.
Royal Bancroft didnâ€™t know who was behind the outlaws
trying to drive him off his land, but he would fight to
the death rather than lose it. Yet with his sister and
brother kidnapped, he felt defeat run through him like a
chill windâ€¦until a girl with cornsilk hair and a steady
gunhand rode into his life.
Antonie was wild, hard, and hurting inside, and Royal knew
from the moment he saw her that, if he tried to tame her,
heâ€™d break her spirit. Instead, he would let her ride with
him as an equal partner, fight beside him for a future,
and come to him as a woman on fire for blazing loveâ€¦.
