Fiery Gem McBride was hardly more than a child when Chase Dupre won her in a lucky hand of poker. She was only fifteen, but one look in his startling sapphire eyes made her yearn to be woman enough to hold him.
Left behind at Chase's sprawling cattle ranch, Gem dreamed of the day he would come back to rescue Four Winds from the rustlers, and claim her yearning body in his hard-muscled arms. But never did she imagine he would return with a sultry Latin beauty clinging to his side. Chase belonged to another woman now, but his flesh still burned to possess the innocent girl he had abandoned, and his heart longed to awaken in her the shimmering ecstasy of GEMFIRE.
