 A promise from his past threatens what Chance values most...his freedom


        Cora Mae Tindale isn’t looking to stir up trouble—she just needs a safe place to hide while she plans out her future.  Having escaped the marriage trap set by her conniving mother, she’s arrived in the wilds of Wyoming searching for the stepbrother who promised to always protect her.  She hadn’t counted on the boy from her childhood becoming a war-hardened rancher with heart-stopping looks that could tempt a saint.

      Plagued by horse thieves and marriage-minded females, the last thing Chance Morgan needs is a woman on his ranch.  But Cora Mae is more than just a pretty face—she’s part of his past; a reminder of the guilt and broken promises he’s spent too many years trying to forget. A distracting array of curls and curves, she hardly resembles the mischievous spitfire from his youth, but her eyes hold the shadows of a painful past, and a passion she struggles to conceal.  Cora Mae’s indifference entices Chance in a way that blatant flirtation never could.  He yearns to discover the truth she hides, but will uncovering her secrets expose his own?
