Synopses & Reviews
Desire came like a wildfire to the Colorado hills...to claim a woman's property...and her heart.
For five years after her father died, lithe, beautiful Dee Swann held on to Angel Creek valley and her independence. The homestead was hers, and she vowed no one else would ever own it...or her. Then Lucas Cochran came back to Colorado. In the drought-cursed high country, he needed Angel Creek and its cool water to turn his Double C ranch into the cattle dynasty he craved. His ruthless ambition guaranteed he would fight to take it away from the black-haired, green-eyed spitfire who claimed it.
But the passion that blazed when Dee Swann and Lucas Cochran met shocked them both. Unbidden, unexpected, their kisses swept them toward a dangerous destiny where dreams might be scattered...men could be killed...or love would be born as wild and unfettered as this glorious frontier.
Since her father's death, Dee has held on to Angel Creek Ranch for five years. Lucas Cochran, new owner of the Double C Ranch, desperately needs Dee's water for his dusty homestead and vows to take Dee's land away from her. But unexpected passion blazes between them when they meet for the first time--as they discover a love as wild as the frontier.
