Nora Marlowe had come to Texas with visions of dashing cowboys and great adventure - but one despicable man with infernal laughing eyes put an end to her illusions. Cal Barton decided it was going to be fun to bring the so-superior Miss Marlowe down to the level of an ordinary woman. She might even enjoy being human for a change.
It began with a kiss . . . then a seduction . . . then the loss of all reason. But Nora's love for Cal would cost her her family, her name, and her wealth. And finally, the hidden truths both Nora and Cal had been afraid to share would drive them apart.
They would have to find the place in their hearts where dreams are given a second chance . . . and love harbors no secret!
