She was an innocent in a dangerous world, and he'd risk anything to keep her safe.
Race Spencer's gun-slinging days are far behind him. He is now a rugged, respectable rancher, but it's a solitary life. Then Fate leads Race to an earthbound angel—lost and alone, the sole survivor of an outlaw attack—and even his hardened heart is moved. He sweeps the ivory-skinned beauty into his arms and carries her away from danger.
When innocent Rebecca Morgan wakes up in a stranger's embrace, her life has been changed forever. Race's touch makes her blood sing and stirs up emotions in her she never knew existed. But this man has a fearsome reputation. And though her life may depend on him, can she trust him? Is it love she sees in her rescuer's dark eyes?
This girl put Race in mind of the angels he'd seen painted on church ceilings down in Mexico. A wounded angel. The thought came from out of nowhere. He didn't even believe in angels, and if, by chance, they did exist and one of them tumbled from heaven, he felt pretty dammed sure God wouldn't choose Race Spencer to rescue her.
