"It's rare to see a historical western with gun-fighting as well as romance, and Ju Ephraime does it with her usual steamy scenes and attention to detail, even the dialogue and characters as true to the period. This is a surefire winner not to be missed..." – New Haven Journal
At first, Cassie Sorrento is suspicious of the drifter, but something about him convinces her to accept the help he offers in solving her grandpa's death. She’s so impressed with his, take charge attitude, she hires him. But she soon realizes she’s in uncharted waters with Joe, and if she's not careful, her carefully guarded secret might be revealed.
Now Cas must decide, should she reveal her secret to Joe and take her chances or should she continue her charade and let him drift on out of her life, when the job was done? This presented a challenge to Cassie, and having never been one to back down from a challenge, she does not intend to now; although she's well aware that in this instance, she might bite off more than she can chew. But Cassie realizes she’d give up everything if it means having Joe in her life, permanently. She wants to go riding with him, all things considered, riding with Joe will be, one hell of a ride!
