A HOT-BLOODED WOMAN Kendra Carpenter was as wild and free as the wide open Nevada territory she had made her home. In spite of the proposals of Reno's young men, she spent her nights dreaming of one man -- a man she had seen for only an instant. From under the wide brim of his hat he had met her gaze with steely gray eyes, appraising her, making the heat rise in her cheeks. Then he had ridden away. But when at last they met again, she knew he had not forgotten her. She had dreamed of him, she had ached for him, and now she was powerless to resist the exquisite rapture of his embrace . . .

Together they would surrender to love's ELUSIVE ECSTASY . . .
