Rosburg captures your attention with
a riveting prologue and doesn't let go until the gut-wrenching climax. She delivers strong, motivated characters, attention to detail, a well-drawn backdrop and a story as old as the West. This is a truly memorable read.

The only survivor of a scalp-hunter's massacre, Louisa Rodriguez buries the dead and wanders naked in the mountains. She is reborn as Blaze, named by the man who finds her, horse wrangler Ring Crossman, for the white streak in her hair. Determined to find the man responsible for the murders, Blaze hunts for the killer.

Apache warrior Bane, aka Bringer of Thunder, is searching for his father, the brute who raped his mother. He is consumed with hatred for the same man Blaze is tracking, and together they make an unbeatable team. Even the growing love that they share does not weaken their thirst for vengeance. But Blaze will pay a high price for their hate -- unless Bane's friends can find a way to rescue her from the hangman. (Medallion, Aug., 380 pp., $7.95)
