USA Today bestselling author Beverly Jenkins returns with the first book in a breathtaking new series set in the Old West
Rhine Fontaine is building the successful life he's always dreamed of—one that depends upon him passing for White. But for the first time in years, he wishes he could step out from behind the façade. The reason: Eddy Carmichael, the young woman he rescued in the desert. Outspoken, defiant, and beautiful, Eddy tempts Rhine in ways that could cost him everything . . . and the price seems worth paying.
Eddy owes her life to Rhine, but she won't risk her heart for him. As soon as she's saved enough money from her cooking, she'll leave this Nevada town and move to California. No matter how handsome he is, no matter how fiery the heat between them, Rhine will never be hers. Giving in for just one night might quench this longing. Or it might ignite an affair as reckless and irresistible as it is forbidden . . .

So much potential
The premise was interesting but the sex scenes were lacking, the ending was abrupt, and the conclusion was unrealistic.
Romance novel with just the right amount of love, drama and history! Excellent book to read! I just love- love!
This is a beautiful historical romance. The research is fascinating and story of Eddy and Rhine is simply lovely. It's not the easiest read, considering Rhine is passing and ultimately has to face the consequences. But ha has a good reason, and he's a good man, someone the sweet, strong, beautiful Eddy deserves.
