"A strong woman, a dark tormented man, and a love as fierce and irresistible as the Wyoming wind."
1880s Wyoming Territory--
As strong as the ranch she runs, widow Rachel Terhune has one dream - to fulfill the legacy she inherited from her father. Hiring Texas cowboy Nick Dusaq has nothing to do with the fierce pull between them and everything to do with saving her land.

The solitary cowboy newly arrived in Wyoming after bringing in a cattle drive, recognizes a kindred heart scarred by cruelty. He would ride away - he should ride away - if only her ranch didn't need him so damned badly. Her ranch - not the widow woman like none he's encountered before - is the only need he'll let himself consider. Because he knows he's not a man entitled to any second chances of the heart.

Passion as powerful as the harsh beauty of the land around them bonds Rachel, the widow woman devoting every bit of her strength and courage to holding onto her Wyoming Territory ranch, and Nick, the loner cowhand with dreams of his own.

Yes, they have passion. But does it hold the promise of healing and love ... or the destruction of dreams?
