Publisher Description

During the Battle of the Wilderness, Union Major Chase Whitlaw shoots a Rebel soldier, just as they're both cut down by a terrible explosion. As the Reb lies dying, he begs Whitlaw to return a locket to his wife, Libby, in New Mexico and tell her he loves her. 

Chase half-heartedly agrees, until Libby's picture in the locket becomes his touchstone, helping him to survive his injuries. 

In New Mexico, Chase finds Libby in desperate straits and offers help instead of truth.

Libby's horse ranch, plagued by unexplained accidents, is failing. Until the arrival of the war-scarred stranger, a neighbor's unwelcome offer of marriage was the only way to save her son's inheritance.

But now, she has Chase. Working side-by-side, their passion becomes undeniable until Chase's truth is revealed.

Now, Libby must decide: forgive or say goodbye forever.


"...a splendid tale of strong men, stubborn women, wild horses and a love that heals as it grows." ~Melinda Helfer, Romantic Times

Chase the Fire

A great story set in the New Mexico frontier following the civil war. Chase was a Union soldier, comforting a Rebel soldier as he dies. The ‘reb’ asks Chase to return a locket to his wife, Libby. In the process of trying to do right by the dying soldier and Libby, Chase finds love and redemption. The book has well-written descriptions of ranch life in frontier times—the trials and tribulations to be overcome. The characters are strong and complex, the dialogue well-developed. A really full, rich story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from eBook Discovery. This is my freely given, honest review.
