Lovely Sunny Thornton was a proper young lady -- but when her ranch became the prize in a ruthless takeover, she realized she'd have to live by her own rules. It was her duty to take charge and save her property. And it was only just that she shelter wounded ex-convict Ash McCord after he rescued her from certain death. But from the moment she gazed into Ash's blazing blue eyes, she knew it was only right that she surrender to the heat of his dangerously hard, lean body, reveal her deepest, most shameless desires -- and lay wanton, passionate claim to his body and his soul . . .
Ash McCord knew he had to protect this headstrong golden girl from her enemies -- and himself. He had to discover the truth behind his unjust imprisonment, and he couldn't let himself be tempted by Sunny's innocent beauty and fiery spirit. But as he looked deep into her honey-gold eyes and tasted the creamy softness of her skin, he could not help but yield to her fiercely tender caresses, drink deep of her sweet lips -- and glory hungrily, endlessly in her wild, wondrous love . . .
