About the Book
Half-native twin Chase Wolf has returned to the town of Paradise to take revenge on the rancher who enslaved his grandmother and sent his kin to a reservation. But when Claire Parker, the rancher’s beautiful daughter, gets in his way, he ends up taking her hostage instead.
The spirited young lady with a taste for dime novels turns out to be more than he bargains for, especially when she starts getting under his skin. Deciding he hasn’t the will to make her pay for the sins of her father, he vows to give her back.
Intrepid Claire feels like she’s fallen into one of her Wild West adventures. By the time she begins to tame the scowling savage who’s abducted her, she realizes he’s found his way into her heart. Delivering her home is not going to be easy, especially when they’re being pursued by her very determined father and when the last thing she wants to do is leave Chase.
Only the help of Chase’s gunslinger twin and Claire’s knowledge of derring-do can get them out of trouble and turn bitter vengeance into breathtaking romance.

What People Are Saying...
“An adventure of the heart from the pen of one of today’s leading authors… Be prepared to be swept away.”
— Karen Kay, New York Times Bestseller
What in the hell was the matter with him? He’d promised her he wouldn’t kiss her again. So much was wrong with what he’d just done, he didn’t know where to begin.
Claire belonged to someone else. No good could come from leading her into temptation—or from tormenting himself with what he couldn’t have. Why had he let her entice him into kissing her again? His brain must be going soft.
Unfortunately, that was all that was going soft. Elsewhere he was as hard as granite.
“What is it?” Claire whispered. “Did I do something wrong?”
Yes, she’d done something wrong. She’d played with fire. She’d poked a grizzly. She’d set herself smack in the path of a runaway stage.
But then he made the mistake of glancing down at her wide green eyes and her sad little mouth, and he didn’t have the heart to let her believe that.
He sighed. “Nope,” he told her. “You didn’t do anything wrong.”
He was the one who’d done something wrong. Their embrace had shaken him, body and soul. It was as if their spirits had intertwined at the joining of their lips, as if the ores of their two divergent metals had become one under the molten heat of their tongues.
“Don’t you like kissing?”
His voice was half chuckle, half choke. “Oh, I like kissing all right.” He liked kissing more than he liked…air.
“Then what is it?” She lowered her eyes. Her whisper was colored with pain. “Am I somehow…repulsive to you?”
“No,” he croaked. “You’re beautiful.” He clenched his fists, fully aware he should say nothing more, and just as fully aware he was going to anyway. “I shouldn’t kiss you…Claire…” She glanced up, clearly startled that he called her by name. “…because it makes me want to do more.”
