He drank her in, as if dying of thirst, but not touching her with anything more than his heated gaze.
She held out her hand.
He clasped it.
And they caught fire.
Audrey Oakes is in Wildcat Bluff County on a mission. She has a lead on the legendary Hallelujah Ranch bootlegger gold—money that would cover the cost of her grandmother's life-saving medical treatment—but she hadn't counted on following it straight into a group of wild horse rustlers. Audrey has no choice but to speed to the closest refuge and hide, only to be confronted by a gun-toting, hot-blooded cowboy.
It might only be a coincidence that Audrey appears on firefighter Cole Murphy's doorstep just as the rustlers race by his ranch. But Cole isn't about to let anything, or anyone, distract him from catching the wild mustang thieves—no matter how red-hot his connection to her is. And if she is part of the rustler ring, all the more reason to keep a very close eye on her.
This sexy cowboy romance is perfect for readers looking for:
• A cowboy firefighter who isn't afraid of a little heat
• A fearless woman who would do anything for her loved ones
• A sassy small town that feels like home
• Intense attraction that can't be denied
