When her parents died without a cent, innocent Tara Montgomery had no choice but to head for Fort Lyon to reunite with her soldier brother. The independent miss never dreamed of the journey's perils-and the worst was her suntanned, buckskinclad wagonmaster Zach Windwalker. His disdain of women travelling alone infurated her; his grisly stories of Western life annoyed her. But Zach's masterful lips upon her sensitive flesh drove her to distraction. Even as Tara swore to despise him forever, the passionate pioneer was guiding his hands to her buttons, her chemise...and to the wildly beating heart beneath!
Half-breed frontierman Zach Windwalker didn't need a tempting morsel like Tara Montgomery in his life-not when he was on the verge of trapping the gunrunners who were supplying the Cheyenne. The virile tracker planned to almost seduce the untouched beauty to scare her back to Washington D.C. But at the moment the strong-willed maile should have pushed her away he pulled Tara even closer. With only the vast plains and distant hills as witness, Zach was as singleminded as the invincible American eagle as he swooped down with unwavering passion upon his unresisting gentle AUTUMN DOVE!
