I Like Hess- some don't. The main charactes were interesting here so I enjoyed the story. Interesting secondary characters also. The story is centered around the daughter of an outlaw - Blaze Addlington. When Hunter Ward first stepped into her life, all he did was scorn her. Now, by quirk of fate or maybe something else, they are married. At first they dislike each other but when something about Blaze's past is revealed, Hunter learns something that makes him change his mind about his wife. Meanwhile, a man from both their pasts reappears on the scene, bent on revenge and determined to see Hunter dead.
