Pamela White needed a man she could trust, not this handsome drifter whose dusty boots and skill with a gun told her he was on the run. But with her father away from the ranch, and Pamela's nearest neighbor encroaching on her territory, she really could use some help. She hoped that this stranger was more honorable than most, because the feel of his intense gaze on her body was beginning to make her wonder what it would be like to kiss him, and before long, his dizzying embrace set her senses reeling beyond all control.
Slade Morgan wanted to keep his past just that - behind him. In fact, his strongest desire was merely to buy a new horse and head straight to California. But once he set eyes on that dark haired spitfire who was running the Bar Double B Ranch, all thoughts of leaving vanished from his mind. He knew that once he gained her trust he would reach his arms around those soft curves and tease this bossy beauty into wild abandon.
