Shadow Ochoa is lying low in the western Kansas Territory, waiting for his fellow Texas Rangersthe Hell's Eight brotherhoodto clear his name. That is, until he's unjustly strung up for horse thievingand pretty Fei Yen intervenes. Invoking a seldom-used law, the exotic lady prospector claims Shadow as her husband and rides off with the bridegroom shackled to her buckboard. Savvy, fearless Fei is single-mindedly devoted to her hidden claim and all it promises: wealth, security and freedom. A husband is just a necessary inconvenience and a name on paper to hold the claim she cannot. Shadow isn't a man to take orders from anyone, especially from lovely Feiexcept that the daily friction between them ignites into nightly blazes of all-consuming passion. Soon Shadow is dreaming a little himself: of the life they could have if only Fei could see past the lure of independence. If only bounty hunters weren't closing in on him. If only he's left standing when the impending showdown has ended. "show more
