Captain Drew Robelard's investigative mission at Fort Tejon was a potentially deadly as the fierce Mjave desert outside. He'd thought his life couldn't get more complicated, until lovely Mandy Henderson arrived & begged for his help in finding her missing fiance.
Drew knew there was no hope that any man could suvive the desert dangers for so many months, but the courage driving the Bostonian beauty aroused his compassion. And helping Mandy would be the perfect cover for his mission. Defying the odds, he found himself lending aid..and losing his heart.
To his dismay, Drew realized hew as competing for Mandy w/ a man who must surely be dead. But how could he convince her to face the bitter turth, and find sweet solace in the refuge of his arms?
