Yankee Doctor Adam McLain was captured by Confederate spies to heal their comrade. But when Adam uncovered the bandages he discovered that the man named "Nick" was actually a very lovely woman! Nicole's beauty and bravery quickly struck Adam to the core, and after an all-too-brief kiss, she helped him leave the camp, and her life, forever. . . .
Nicole never forgot the man who evoked feelings in her she'd never known existed. And months later, with her life in danger, she was sent to the wild frontiers of Texas to ask for the good doctor's help once again. But though they had shared her first moment of passion, Nicole knew her troubled past made her unfit to consider the one thing she'd dreamed of since that fateful night - - a life of love with Adam.
But Adam was determined now that he had her back, never to let her go . . . .
