Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lilla Traften saves Violet Dalton from a life of prostitution, sending the troubled lass to live with her father Miles in St. Louis. For the next three years, Miles treats Violet as if she really was his daughter, showering her with love and respect. However, in spite her host's kindness and nurturing, Violet carries loads of baggage that leaves her thirsting for vengeance against the person she detests most, her father who sold her like cattle. Eventually she flees ready enact revenge via bank robberies with her father being the accused.

A worried Miles sends Gregory Kline to find his "adopted" daughter though he has doubts about this once contemptible person who he fears might hurt his beloved Violet. Gregory finds Violet and tries to get her to go home, but she is not pliable and refuses to adhere to his desires. As they fall in love, Gregory wonders how to prevent her from committing an act that he believes she will regret forever while residing behind bars.

Ronda Thompson can make silk out of a cow's ear as she recreates a whore and a rat into lead protagonists with redeeming qualities that remain true to their personalities described as secondary roles in DESERT BLOOM. The story line grabs fans wanting to observe how Ms. Thompson has succeeded in the transformation while enjoying an engaging western romance.
