Four years ago rugged Carson Blackridge had branded Lara with his masculine touch, then crushed her innocent heart. Utterly humiliated, she\'d fled the Rocking B forever. Reluctantly, she was returning, but strictly to research the history of the ranch-not to relive her past with Carson. Once, jealous rage had driven Carson to cruelly reject gently trusting Lara Chandler. Now he needed her back on the ranch...and wanted her back in his arms. He would stop at nothing to rekindle her passion, use any trick to recapture her love. But if she discovered the depth of his deception, would she once more vanish like the wild, sweet wind?
