Kristin MaCahy's dream of freedom and a life of dignity and self-sufficiency had vanished. All she had left to fight for was her ranch--but she had to give up her independence to do it. She needed Cole Slater's help, but in return she offered the only thing she had--herself. No questions. No answers. Just a bargain. From the author of Slow Burn.
The War Was Over...
But, embittered by the conflict, Shannon McCahy and Malachi Slater still fought a raging battle of wills all their own. A Yankee whose only solace was the land she had struggled to save. Shannon hated the hot-tempered Malachi, a Rebel on the run who stood for all she had come to despise.
Yet as jayhawkers and bushwhackers descended upon the lawless Missouri border, the two joined forces in a desperate search for their endangered loved ones. They clashed relentlessly, but as time ran out they were forced to realize there was something between them far stronger than hatred . . .
This month brings the unforgettable conclusion to the epic saga in which the indomitable Slater brothers discover the importance of family ties, loyalty and love amidst the conflict and despair of the Civil War.
