Proud and courageous, cast adrift by the War Between the States, Shannon Conner has carved out a life for herself in the mountains. But now that she's become a target of the vile, predatory Culpepper brothers, she must turn to a stranger for help -- Rafael "Whip" Moran, an enigmatic wanderer tied to no place or promise. Intrigued by this intoxicating "widow" with a walk like honey and a tight grip on her shotgun, Whip is resolved to defend Shannon's honor and her life. But no peril in this high, lonely place is greater than the intense passion the lady inspires within him -- for it threatens to cost Whip the freedom that is as much a part of him as his soul.
′There is no finer guarantee of outstanding romance than the name of Elizabeth Lowell′ - Romantic Times.
Cast adrift during the War Between the States, Shannon Conner grew to womanhood in a lonely cabin high in the Colorado Rockies. Though stubborn and courageous, Shannon is ill-prepared to deal with the predatory Culpepper brothers - and the intoxicating ardour of the man who defends her honour, Rafael ′Whip′ Moran.
A loner and a wanderer, a man tied to no place or promise, Whip aids the wary young ′widow′ who has a walk like honey and a determined grip on her shotgun. But neither the Culpeppers nor grizzlies are as dangerous to Whip as the passion Shannon offers him - a passion that could cost Whip the freedom that is as much a part of him as his soul.
