SHE YEARNED TO CARESS HIM
Home at last after three years at an exclusive Eastern finishing school, headstrong Texas belle Bianca Moreno had forgotten that it was improper as well as dangerous to gallop her stallion across the plains alone. Only after being ambushed by bandits, then rescued by a handsome ranchhand did Bianca agree to an escort.. .and only if it could be the same Rick Larkin who had swept her to safety. And when her rugged bodyguard bowed to her and smiled, Bianca forgot her father's wishes that she marry a wealthy rancher and become a proper lady. Rick would do more than guard her body, she vowed. She'd let him kiss her as she'd never been kissed before, then urge him to teach her the secrets she'd always yearned to know...the secrets of wild, reckless love.
HE LONGED TO POSSESS HER
Rick Larkin had come to Texas with one goal in mind: to follow the map he'd inherited and recover the money his father had hidden on the Big D ranch. Then, Rick was sidetracked saving a reckless miss from outlaws...and shared a moment of magic with her in a stolen kiss. He had nothing to offer the rancher's daughter except his protection, but he could not resist Bianca's tempting charms. She was a fever in his blood, far more seductive than the hidden gold he sought! Somehow, he'd find a way to caress her silky golden flesh, kiss away her maidenly inhibitions and carry her over the threshold of desire in a night of loving she would never forget.
