Mariah Hoag fought to keep her family's farm, not lose it to a greedy land baron like old John McKenzie.
McKenzie's long-lost son came home to settle the past with his dying father, not fall for a strong-willed farm girl who stirred his heart -- and hated his name.
At first he was a dark, handsome stranger helping Mariah protect her farm from stampeding steer. A drifter whose stolen kisses drove Mariah's virtue to the brink. Then the truth came out -- he was really Bay McKenzie, the youngest son of her family's worst enemy. Now Mariah must decide . . . is he part of yet another McKenzie scheme? Or is this irresistible cowboy an honorable man, a man worthy of the forbidden passion he has unleashed within her!
