Author’s Summary: Takes place sometime after "Obsession", hence the reference to time passage and Ella Gaines.
Why This Must Be Read: This takes everything I love about westerns and uses it perfectly. Mary is strong and determined and just as stubborn as Chris is. Chris is gruff, bitter and yet still something of a gentleman. The dialogue and descriptions are great and the sexual tension is wonderfully delicious. Oh, did I mention the dialogue? 'Cause it (no lie) makes me giddy.
