A man scarred by his past...a woman of fiery passion and spirit...and a secret mission that could kill them both...

The post-Civil War west brings Slade McCord, a haunted, scarred man, brutally betrayed by love and almost destroyed by life, to the wild Arizona Territory on a mission. Lillian Manchester, the sheltered daughter of a rancher, yearns for adventure and dreams of the love and companionship of a strong man–the only one that can tame her restless, wildfire heart. Like a fresh breeze across the arid desert, Lillian's indomitable spirt and zest for living breathe renewed life into the shell of the man, and Slade is seduced by his desire for the fiery, sensual beauty of a desert flower meant for him alone. Can he break free of the chains that bind him to the past to accept what Lillian offers? Or should he ride away and forget he was ever offered a second chance to live...and love?
...He grabbed her by her shoulders, his fingers biting. Slade was trying to scare her, she knew that. He was trying to make her run.

She didn't flinch and instead leaned into him. "Then take, Slade, take it all, everything I have to give," she whispered in a low, husky voice.

Surprise reflected in his eyes and his hands loosened on her arms. She took the opportunity to wind her arms around his neck, drawing his head down to her. She reveled in the feel of his damp, thick hair as she threaded her fingers through it and raised her lips to meet his. Lilly might be innocent, but she knew what she wanted. Age-old instinct directed her.

A flame flared to life at the first touch of his hard, cool mouth. It took but a second for the spark of response to ignite. She'd waited so long for the touch of his lips, had fantasized about them, but the reality was so much more. He crushed her to him, his lips parted. His tongue demanded more than her chaste kiss and she surrendered to his insistent command as he invaded her moist depths. Molten lava flowed through her veins. A need to be absorbed by this man overwhelmed her, and the fire inside burned out of control...

Professional Reviews

Just Erotic Romance Reviews
"4/5 Stars, Heat Level: "0rgasmic"....Ms. Dane starts out a new series with a hot steamy short story...Slade and Lilly come together and it is lucky there is a heavy rain because they would start a wildfire, barn fire and a fire in my bedroom. This fantastic short story will not disappoint!"—Julie Esparza

The Romance Studio
4 1/2 Hearts!...A well-written, exciting start to Ms. Dane's series. This story is short, but don't worry, Ms. Dane never skimps on anything. Her plot and characters are vibrant and well developed...While the ending feels complete and satisfying, it definitely leaves you hungry for the next story in this series. I highly recommend this quick, red-hot read..."—Renee Burnette

CoffeeTime Romance
4 Cups!...Adrianna Dane is so vivid in her descriptions that you can see the sunsets and hear the wind. Her love scenes could be found in the romance novels in all the bookstores and supermarkets—if we were so lucky. Ms. Dane is a superb writer. She snares your interest, keeps it until the end, and then some...I know it will be researched thoroughly and be full of fascinating tidbits..."—Brenda McCoy
