From the Author
"Are we in for the night?" she asked without taking her eyes off the pool.
"Yep." His one-word answer seemed to be enough this time.
"What do you plan to do with me?" Eden asked over her shoulder as she disrobed. Sam could see that she didn't intend to play shy around him. That was good, because if she was waiting for him to look away, she'd be an old woman when she gave up.
"Plenty." He worked the one word through lips almost as stiff as his cock. She was a sight to see and she knew it, standing there flaunting her wares at him.
"All right," she huffed. Her words were filled with irritation as she stepped out of dress and chemise in one fluid motion. "Is that what this is about?" She sounded genuinely surprised when she asked, "You're not interested in the bounty?"
Eden turned to face him as she gathered her long mane of hair, re-pinning it on top of her head. She stood naked on the rim of the rock pool, surrounded by torchlight.
Jesus, the woman's trying to kill me. Savoring the creamy skin covering her slender curves, he followed the lift of her arm and watched her rounded breast tilt upward. Licking lips suddenly gone dry, Sam let his eyes center on the patch of dark curls at the V of her thighs.
"You were on the top of my wanted list as soon as I set eyes on you. Handbill or not, I'd have claimed you," he admitted gruffly.
Eden walked around the hot spring and followed the ancient steps down into the pool. Her soft moan of pleasure echoed in the cave. "Ohhh, this is wonderful."
His voice sounded pretty rough to his own ears when he called over to her, "You plannin' on fuckin' me senseless again so you can escape?"
Her laughter bounced off the walls, followed by her answer. "Yes."
If there was one thing Sam enjoyed more than the chase, it was the challenge of keeping the prey once caught. "Give me a minute to get us settled for the night, pretty lady. Then you can commence your getaway attempt."

This was a great story with smooth character development. The story begins with Sam seeing Eden at the tables and he just can't get her off his mind. When Sam's first attempts to get Eden to realize his rough but loyal charm fail he persists until their passion just took over. Eden fought it in honor of her dead husband but Sam earns her respect. The author did a great job showing the tough and vulnerable sides of each of these characters. We get an Idea of where they came from and why they are headed in the direction they are going.
The story is great I would recommend to anyone who likes spicy historical westerns and rough cowboys.
Eden is an excellent card player, and very pretty to look at. She goes from town to town and saloon to saloon playing and winning. But she is a woman on a mission of revenge.
Sam is a bounty hunter who falls for Eden. A wanted poster is issued for her capture and Sam is just the man to do it. But not for reward, he knows there is more to it. The relationship between them is explosive. He helps her, by getting the law on their side to take down the man who killed her husband, and unborn baby.
NOTE: If you are offended by Erotic, this book is not for you. BUT, if you enjoy a good book, that is erotica, like westerns/historical books, this is a great story. I have recommended this book already to others. If it is published by Ellora's Cave, you know it is erotica!
I did notice some typos, and hope they get corrected, but they did not take away from the storyline.
Sam rides with his bounty hunter cousins, Deacon and Charlie "Wolf" MacAllister who were featured in Wolf's Tender. Eden has a bounty on her head and falls into Sam's ready hands.
Eden was a single minded, fiesty, determined, independent heroine and she certainly led the very possessive Sam a merry chase.
Sam is a rough man who has his limitations and is aware of them, but he is certainly up to the task of protecting Eden and keeping her safe from her own folly. I liked the gentle humour of Sam as he carefully thought out how best to deal with Eden and her quest for vengeance.
This book is no different to any other historical western written by this author. Excellent characters, a wonderful heroine and a strong hero. Enough "heat" between the major characters to keep it interesting. I particularly enjoyed meeting up again with characters from earlier stories. If you enjoy spicy historical westerns then this book is well worth reading.
