The wild north heats up whenever Bridges brings her alpha heroes and strong-willed heroines together in
a battle-of-wills romance. There's always enough adventure, passion
and atmosphere to entertain every western reader.
Small-town nurse Victoria Windhaven requires a bodyguard when she travels into the wilderness to nurse injured miners. But five years ago, Brant MacQuaid left her sister at the altar, and Victoria has never forgiven him.
Brant is aware of Victoria's hostility, but he must use her as a cover for his assignment to apprehend a notorious outlaw. Their trek reveals the thin line between love and hate, and they're forced to work together to survive the wilderness, outlaws and a trail fraught with risks. But the greatest risk they face is falling in love. (HARLEQUIN, Nov., 300 pp., $5.99)
