Alone and lost in a land of desolate sands, flame-haired Kara anxiously searched the horizon, for she knew this remote place had once been a prison colony of rogues, outcasts, and killers. Then her breath caught in her throat as a stranger approached. Tall, blond, magnificent, he exuded a manliness as primitive as the hungers of the heart.
He was Aidan, a descendant of an outlaw, a man born to be her enemy, a man now ready to risk his destiny for this woman. His violent world held dangers that could destroy her, but his kisses promised a rapture that she had never before known. All Kara's training told her to escape... to forget the touch that inflamed her passions, the caress that reached to pleasure's core. But in one blazing moment of ecstasy, Kara knew there was no danger worse than losing him... and no peril greater than daring to love.
