Hoping to cool off a twenty-five-year-old feud between two neighboring families, Cassie Stuart only succeeds in pouring kerosene on the flames. Both sides have warned her to get out of Texas pronto or they will burn her father’s ranch to the ground.
What Cassie needs is a peacemaker — but she ends up with a widow-maker instead.
He is called Angel — a ruggedly handsome hired gun with eyes as black as sin. Unwanted and unwelcomed by his ungrateful employer, he would just as soon leave Cassie to fend for herself But a stubborn sense of duty — and a desire to taste the sweetness of her kiss — steels Angel’s resolve to make Cassie want him, come hell or high water… and for more than his gun alone.
