Dena Clayter carried a secret. In the midst of a blizzard, the young widow had harbored an outlaw. She had fed and nursed the injured fugitive, frightened not of the man but of the longings he incited. She had yearned for his touch, the comfort of his arms, his lips against hers, and their passion had flared hot enough to burn away all of her inhibitions.
Now Dena raced across the West to try to save him from the hangman's noose. For more than just his life hung in the balance---Dena's own future and that of their baby stood in jeopardy. And the expectant mother had to know if a blond conceived in winter darkness would be revealed as love in the light of spring.
