*Warning: Graphic language and explicit sex.*
Slade Dalton's partner has just dispatched their latest quarry, a member of the notorious Purdy clan. Slade's certain there will be retribution and he's certain that he's damn tired of the bounty hunting business. Returning to the family's cattle spread in the Colorado Territory, he's relieved to find his brother Grady has not claimed ownership of the ranch in his absence. But there is a troubling, new addition to the Lazy Heart Ranch, an irresistible, raven-haired English beauty. Lacey has promised herself in marriage to Grady Dalton, but Slade's not about to bless the union. He's never shared anything with his brother, and he's not about to start now.
Lacey Sarah Jarrell is somewhat pampered, quite privileged and completely wild. Her father, hoping to tighten the reins on his impetuous daughter, promises her hand to a wealthy, older man. Not loving the man is the least of Lacey's worries. With ugly whispers, he has made it clear what perversions he intends once they are married. Fortunately, Lacey has found the perfect way out of her nightmarish betrothal . . .simply marry a different man. Finding herself on a rustic cattle ranch, she soon realizes her tidy, little plan has one major flaw. Her future brother-in-law.
