Editorial Reviews"This book sizzled. The chemistry with this couple was explosive. It definitely is not for the faint of heart. There is a high volume of sexuality and it is very graphic. Often when that is the case, there is no storyline and the plot is underdeveloped.

That was definitely not the case here. The book was highly emotional. This is not my first Helen Hardt book and it will certainly not be my last. "–Brenda Talley, The Romance Studio"I loved this book. The characters were wonderful. They each showed their vulnerable sides as well as their strengths.

They are real people and have real problems but also some very loving solutions... I found myself daydreaming of my own cowboy after finishing this book.
