Left behind by everyone she loves…
Rebecca Garvey had the promise of a California future dreams are made of, until the wagon train her family was traveling with left her behind. Now she’s slowly dying in the wilderness, abandoned and stripped of her self-worth. Once the shock of her desertion turns to embittered despair, she doesn’t want to be found. Then a handsome stranger challenges her convictions and changes her mind.
Headed for Texas, chased by the demons of his past…
Seth Emerson knows exactly what he wants. Working to save for a cattle ranch of his own keeps him busy and keeps his pain buried. Rescuing a stubborn woman from the hills of New Mexico Territory isn’t part of his plan—but she’s exactly what he needs.
Making greater sacrifices than either of them could foresee…
Seth and Rebecca set off on a risky journey and a quest for truth, each healing the other’s love-starved soul along the way. Will they give in to their growing attraction? Or will they honor their commitments when Seth returns Rebecca to civilization… and her betrothed?
Becca relaxed and breathed deeply as they cantered across the countryside. Clear skies spanned the horizon, and sunlight warmed her everywhere it touched. The heat of it was welcome in calm, cold air.
When the sun was nearly overhead, Seth stopped at a stream. He surprised her by stealing some kisses, saying he was getting his fill while the horses drank theirs.
She gently chided him as a proper lady should, then abandoned that insanity. Her fingers gripped his nape and her tongue sought his, turning his chaste kiss into something darker. They both groaned. Hands groped and bodies ground together in a futile effort to get skin against skin. Seth’s hat was knocked from his head, but he gave no notice.
He finally pulled away, panting. “Damn.” A smile curved his luscious lips. “I shoulda gone swimming instead.”
