Fran Baker delivers the captivating story of a woman haunted by the ghosts of the past, and a daredevil who promises a future filled with love.
Joni Fletcher knows that there’s enough oil beneath her grandfather’s land to save the family farm—and then some. She’s just got to convince Chance McCoy, the arrogant oil man whose exploits have earned him a reputation as a wildcatter. But when she meets Chance, his assured manner and striking good looks catch her off-guard. Joni hasn’t felt this way since her husband died. She wasn’t sure she ever would.
At first, Chance McCoy is amused by the leggy redhead with the bold proposal. But Joni’s fiery determination and her irresistible beauty keep him listening. And when Chance accepts her grandfather’s offer to stay in their home while drilling for oil, the fantasies only get hotter. Whenever they’re together, Chance is overwhelmed by the electricity that sizzles between them. He’s sure that Joni feels it, too. How can she pretend otherwise? Somehow Chance must find a way to make her understand that she belongs in his arms—forever.
