I LOVE this book. It's one of my favorite books by Ms. Joyce. It's part of the Bragg series.
From the sensuous voice of novelist Brenda Joyce comes Firestorm, the extraordinary first book in the Bragg family saga that has captured the hearts of readers everywhere. Here is the beginning of the Bragg empire-opulent and glamorous-vast, dangerous, and as untamed as the sweeping plains of Texas...
Storm Bragg could outshoot and outride any man, but her family decided it was time she traded in her buckskins for a ballgown and made her debut in San Francisco society. Quickly pursued by every eligible gentleman in town, the young hellcat from Texas had eyes for only one, and he was no gentleman. Brett D'Archand was a self-made success arrogant, impossibly attractive, blatantly sensual and looking for a wife who would give him respectability.
Storm was completely bewitched by him, but she made him lose his head as well as his heart. And, threatened by scandal and ruin, they are forced to wed a tempestuous union of free spirits, shackled only by the irrepressible bonds of love.
She could outshoot and outride any man, but it was time for Storm Bragg to trade in her buckskins for a ballgown. Sent to sophisticated San Francisco, she was quickly pursued by every eligible gentleman in town, but took notice of only one, Brett D'Archand -- and he was no gentleman. A self-made success, he was virile, arrogant, impossibly attractive -- and looking for a wife who would give him respectability. But the Texas hellcat bewitched him.
