Kate Melrose sets out to escape two dangerous men and begin a new life with her teenaged brother Toby and their dog Sergeant. On their way out of town, they meet Jake Hunter, also going to Phoenix. Kate feels safe with Jake, but something about the tall, handsome cowboy shakes her to her core.
Is there something more to him than the friendly help he offers?
Jake hides his reason for traveling with Kate and Toby, a reason that battles with his growing attraction to Kate’s beauty and grace. She fills his heart and mind with thoughts of a life of love and tranquility, far different from the life of danger he lives now.
Will he have any chance with her once she learns what he really is?
Matt Sutherland arrives in Blasted Pine Arizona with one goal—find enough gold to marry his sweetheart back home. He never planned to take on a partner, especially a feisty young woman with violet eyes.
Deidre Connolly yearns to make a better life for herself, and Matt can teach her the skills she needs. However, she longs for lessons that involve more than reading and writing. But she’s no lady, and a man like Matt would never want a woman like her.
As Matt and Dee pan for gold and face the dangers of the West, they learn to value what the other offers, but fight the fire of attraction between them. Can they overcome their differences to find a future together?
