The third in a trilogy -- beginning with "The Pirate" and continuing with "The Adventurer" -- of linked stories about three friends who each find love with three very unique -- and unlikely -- candidates.
THE WEST WAS NEVER THIS WILD...
Margaret Lark knew all about cowboys in pin-striped suits: they were the heroes in her books. She'd never admit to fantasizing about that type of man -- much less acknowledge that she'd walked out on one. And Rafe Cassidy -- with all the powerful grit of a true cowboy -- is fantasy material. He's just not her fantasy anymore!
But Rafe is shooting for a different ending to their story. One year after their explosive breakup -- a breakup fueled by corporate intrigue, betrayal and bitter accusation -- Rafe once again stakes his claim on her heart. As ruthless and determined as a gunslinger, he's not above blackmail to get her out to his Arizona ranch. For the final showdown.
