A woman with a burning need to break free from her past . . .
Rose Landro is on the run. Seeking refuge at the Rimrock Ranch, she is finally ready to claim the land her granddaddy left her and make a fresh start. But her return is rife with controversy when cattle begin disappearing—and a handsome menace named Tanner McCade starts watching Rose a little too closely. Could the new cowhand be connected to the men she’s hiding from? Or is there another reason the rugged stranger is shadowing her every move?
A man ready to fight boldly for his future . . .
There’s a secret in Rose Landro’s eyes, a mystery that Special Ranger Tanner McCade is determined to uncover. Even if the beauty isn’t behind the cattle rustling he’s investigating, she’s way too skittish, and all too exquisite for Tanner to just let slide past his piercing gaze. Then he discovers a vulnerability in Rose that has him aching to protect her—and longing to possess her. . . .
“Big, bold, and sexy . . . Janet Dailey at her best!”

Dailey continues the saga of the Tyler family and Rimrock Ranch with this addictive sixth installment (after Texas Fierce). At 14, Rose Landro had to flee to Mexico after killing the man who killed her grandfather. Twelve years later, she's forced to kill again, and Rose decides that facing the law in Texas is preferable to certain death at the hands of a vengeful Mexican drug cartel. Besides, she's now old enough to claim her grandfather's legacy, a small piece of land that lies between Bull Tyler's cattle ranch and the nearest reliable water source. Bull now holds the deed to the land. Girded for a fight with BUll, Rose encounters Tanner McCade, an undercover lawman working for rival rancher Ferg Prescott. After Ferg offers to help in her battle with Bull, Tanner starts falling in love with Rose, but he may be in for a few surprises, because he doesn't know the half of what she's capable of. Satisfying as a standalone, this installment will also delight fans of the series.
