Shoot first. Ask her name later.
Infamy weighs heavy on Delaney Crawford’s broad shoulders, first as a supposed Confederate turncoat, then as a cold-eyed bounty hunter. Summoned to the small town of Red Creek, the exhausted, embittered Del is doing what he does best when one of his bullets misses the mark.
Ex-nun Moira Tully has been working with John White Horse for months to help integrate a band of Cheyenne with the local townsfolk. Now he’s hurt, and she’s been caught in the crossfire. There’s only one man to blame for her simmering anger and the inexplicable attraction that tilts her heart on its axis: Del.
When Del discovers he’s been brought to Red Creek for nefarious purposes, he must determine the treacherous motives behind his hiring, all while fighting a wild attraction for Moira that catches flame at the most inconvenient moments. But the most heart-wrenching challenge could be overcoming sordid secrets that won’t stay in their pasts—pasts threatening to bury all hope of happily ever after.
Includes bonus novella, WILD FIRE!
Wildfires blaze across the Colorado landscape, but the most dangerous fire of all burns between Sheriff Del Crawford and his beloved wife, Moira, as they fight to save their small town and navigate married life on the American frontier.
It s a Wild West meet cute when Confederate soldier turned bounty hunter Delaney Crawford shoots nun turned schoolmarm Moira Tully just minutes after encountering her. Attitudes clash and sparks fly as the two butt heads over Moira s pacifist leanings and efforts to integrate Cheyenne with whites, at odds with Del s mission to hunt down the band of renegade Cheyenne supposedly threatening the mining town of Red Creek, Colo. A fast-burning mutual attraction leads to something physical, but the new relationship may be derailed by uncooperative locals, the marauding Indians, and Moira and Del s painful pasts. Harris (Love Songs) launches a new series with this zippy, erotically charged tale as the two would-be lovers try to overcome painful experiences and tarnished reputations he as a traitor and deserter, she as a nun who lost her faith in order to move forward together. Serious chemistry and sizzling sex somewhat make up for the abundance of clich .
