A stagecoach robbery is the spark that sets fire to Lorelei Sullivan's plan for the future. She and her brother moved to New Mexico Territory to escape the past, to ranch, but Corey has destroyed all hope of that. Lawmen now want him—and Lorelei won't see the boy hang. Yet defying the law places her between two men she can't trust: her sibling and Christopher Braddock, who is her brother's one shot at redemption—a hard, silent man who lights a fire inside her. And as his kiss fans the flames of desire, Lorelei wonders whether she will be consumed by this inferno or rise reborn from its ashes.
