Author on this book is Sonya T. Pelton. From the rear cover: "A man's word. 'I'll be back, missy, when you're all grown up', laughed arrogant Ashe Brandon to little Tanya Hayes, 'and you better be waiting.' The rich, carefree rogue hadn't meant a thing he said-until he returned to find the innocent girl had became an irresistible temptress. His fingers burned to caress her perfect curves; his lips thirsted to taste her creamy flesh. Ashe was never the kind of man to ask for what he could take. And he was determined to possess her body and soul!
A woman's need. The day he rode off to fight in the Mexican War, blue-eyed Tanya swore she'd save herself for the handsome cowboy. But as the long months passed, the now-voluptuous beauty realized he was just a selfish brute. Then the bold ranger swaggered back into town and Tanya couldn't stop the flush of desire that scorched her from head to toe. The furious vixen couldn't admit she still wanted him. All she could think of was how to break his heart like he had shattered hers-and show him only love could tame a wild TEXAS TIGRESS."
