As soon as the tall, handsome Spaniard leaned down from his stallion to offer her a rose, Caralee McConnell knew California held danger. But all too quickly she was forced to deny the heat Ramon de la Guerra had sparked. Determined to please her uncle who had saved her from poverty, she must resign herself to marrying a man he has chosen for her … and ignore what is in her heart.
Behind Ramon de la Guerra’s dark eyes throbbed the memory of his lands, stolen by the beautiful Americana’s uncle. He had sworn to reclaim them — riding by night as the ruthless outlaw, El Dragon. In a moment of rage and revenge, he stole Caralee away to his mountain lair … but there, in a passion as sweet as California wine, he would reveal a secret that could cost him his life — and his heart’s freedom.
Why Midnight Rider?
I fell in love with this book years ago when I first discovered historical romance and I still love it today just as much. The author does a great job with historical details on this one and delivers a fun and spicy romance. I did enjoy the Californian Spanish culture we are introduced into here. A sensual and suspenseful adventure…always love those.
