Cathryn Ashe just wants to make a quick trip back to the ranch she's inherited before returning to her city life. But years ago, she and Rule Jackson, the ranch manager, had a torrid entanglement. Now, eight years later, she returns, sure of herself and her newfound independence and ready to challenge him again.

But Rule, once wild and now old and wiser, has never been as passionate about any woman as he is with Cathryn. And as she stays longer, Rule can't help but fall for her all over again. If he wants a second chance at love, Rule will somehow have to show Cathryn that they are meant to be together.

A thrilling romantic suspense story.

One of Howard's weakest books. The story is outdated and a little cheesy, and the characters are occasionally annoying.

Just another cheesy romance novel. Maybe if I had read it in 1983, I would have liked it better beacuse it just doesn't work for today.

Really immature heroine, standard strong silent type hero. I read this as a palate cleanser after the awfulness that was ICE. As flawed as it is, it was far more engaging than Ice. I like Howard's westerns. This is a reprint of a much earlier book, and it reads like that. It's dated, there's no questions about it. But it still fills the 2 hours very nicely. Rule ostensibly works for Catherine, after she inherits the ranch from her dad. She worried about his intentions - does he want her or does he want the ranch that he has managed so well in her absence that people refer to it as Rule's spread. Cat needs to grow up, Rule needs to let go and they both need each other.

It's ok to become an avid reader of Linda are in good company. This was my first, when originally published, and she hooked me for life. Sit back, relax, day- dream and enjoy one of the few true pleasures left in life...a good read.
