But the tender care she's receiving from the sexy lawman -- and the intense heat his touch inspires -- makes the wild beauty burn to have Black Fox as a lover, not an enemy ... and to surrender to a fiery passion that could spell disaster for them both
The powerful sensuality of Creed Sixkiller makes Raney's heart race ... the same as it did three years ago when he proposed to her.

Her delicate beauty and gentility only bring back the searing memories of their hopeless romance, but as he leads them both down a dangerous path, Creed is beginning to realize that the greatest peril of all is a love that never truly vanished ... and a wild desire that could not be tamed
