Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award Finalist for Best Innovative Historical Romance 1997-1998
After twelve years, the headstrong Annabel McKeige is back in the frontier town of Parable, Nevada. Back to face the husband she left behind…the son she never saw grow to manhood…and the home where her heart broke when she lost a beloved daughter. But her intentions regarding their marriage are soon clear—even if her motives are not.
Gabe McKeige loved Annabel too fiercely to let a chance like this slip away. But the iron-willed rancher is also too proud to beg—he didn’t twelve years ago, and he won’t now. So, Gabe sets out to woo Annabel the only way he knows…with passion-filled kisses and sensual touches that conjure the sweet firestorm of their marriage bed. And Annabel is finding that the man she once left is unbearably hard to resist….
