Maybe the heroines in her books could look sexy riding a horse into the Sierras in search of a man, but Katherine Taylor Winslow felt sore, sunburned, and downright silly. She'd agreed to write the life story of Cole Grayson, Hollywood's last swashbuckling star, but he'd insisted she do it in his world, in the wild land where he escaped from his adoring public. Kate had spunk to spare, but everywhere she went, disaster followed, and being fished from an icy creek by the irresistible cowboy with the lazy drawl made her blush all over! She always fell for her own heroes, and Cole in the flesh made her heart gallop as no man ever had--but he was determined to convince her he wasn't a hero, only a man... a man who could put the fire of passion in her woman's blood. She loved him for teaching her to ride the wind, but could she make her rough and gentle man see that he deserved the gift she brought?
