Jessica Depre's life is in tatters. She’s on the run, thanks to her abusive husband Robert, who needs to silence her about his criminal escapades and the part he forced her to play in them. When bounty hunter Drake Adams walks into the boarding house where she works, Jessica slips away into the night. Her only hope of surviving and protecting those she loves from her husband’s rage is to vanish forever.
Unable to accept that the only woman he ever loved left him standing at the altar and married another, Drake Adams has given up a good law practice in the Wyoming Territory. If he’s not hunting down bounties, he’s pursuing the bottom of a bottle of bourbon. When Drake learns his former fiancée, Jessica Majors-Depre, has a price on her head, he decides he will collect the reward.
Can the bounty hunter and the bank robber ignite a future from the ashes of their past when they are trapped by a blizzard in a mountain shack or will playing with fire burn them both?
BIOGRAPHY I grew up on a steady diet of syndicated Westerns, with a lot of John Wayne movies thrown in for good measure. Sunday nights were for *Lassie*. I blame those things for my love of the wide open spaces in the West, cowboys, and collies. When I'm not writing about the strong women who loved those cowboys and the cowboys brave enough to love those strong women, I'm showing my collies.
I've been a RONE finalist, a RONE runner-up, winner of two Raven Awards, won two Laramie Awards, and was a finalist for the Beverley (offered by the CO RWA).
