In the heat of the southwest, desire is the kindling for two lost souls--and the flame of passion threatens to consume them both.

Rosie Saladay needs to get married--fast. The young widow needs help to protect her late husband's ranch, but no decent woman can live alone with a hired hand. With the wealthy Wesley Morris making a play for her land, Rosie needs a husband or she risks losing everything. So she hangs a sign at the local saloon: Husband wanted. Apply inside. No conjugal rights.

Delmar Grant is a sucker for a damsel in distress, and even with Rosie's restrictions on "boots under her bed" stated firmly in black and white, something about the lovely widow's plea leaves him unable to turn away her proposal of marriage.

Though neither planned on falling in love, passion ignites between the unlikely couple. But their buried secrets--and enemies with both greed and a grudge--threaten to tear them apart. They'll discover this marriage of convenience may cost them more than they could have ever bargained for.

About the Author

As soon as Samantha could spell, she was writing a mystery! By high school she had written a pirate romance novel and a contemporary romance. Later, writing while her children napped, her short romantic stories began appearing in magazines and continued to do so for years. After selling her first novel, she enjoyed teaching fiction skills at adult education and writers' conferences. Ten novels later, following a pause to work full-time, Samantha is once again writing, hoping her readers will find her stories full of romance, mystery and adventure.
