Her fate was uncertain...

But that did not keep spirited Aubrey Blue from journeying to Santa Fe to avenge a shattering past that tormented her soul. Disguised as a prim schoolmarm, she hid more than her alluring beauty. For no one could see her fierce determination, her able sharp-shooting, her survivor's heart. No one except the one man determined to claim her as his own...

His past was a secret...

Christian McBride sought justice for the misguided verdict that wrongly jailed him years before. Traveling westward with his stoic Ute companion, Sun Shadow, the rugged, bold plainsman knew the perils of the West better than his own heart - which was about to fall hostage to the mysterious, raven-haired woman who boarded the stage he was riding - and who, it would turn out, was not at all what she seemed...

My rating:

I know I said I love most Ms. Canham's Highlander stories, but this one was one heck of a romance set in the far west. Rife with intrigue, shadowed past, revenge-seeking, and sizzling passion, this novel is a must read for all MC fans, as well as fans of romance under the sizzling sun of the frontier.

Well-paced, nicely-plotted with wonderful characters, great intrigue, stunning descriptions and sizzling chemistry. If you decide to pick up this baby, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.
