Martina Wilde had once known passion. For one night ten years ago in the impulsive arms of dangerous Trask Benedict. But their white-hot passion turned to ash when he disappeared. That's why when forced by her father to marry or lose her Texas fortune, she chose a safe-and boring-fiance. For Marty, there was only one man's touch she craved... Trask Benedict was back from the dead. In the past ten years he'd gone from bad boy to wanted man-with the scars to prove it. Danger nipping at his heels, he had nowhere to turn for help, except to Martina's father. But first he had to get past Marty herself -- the woman who was now engaged to the wrong man!
