BRIDE OF SHADOW CANYON
Kayne's latest is fast-paced, action-packed and filled with sexual tension. The reluctant hero is a coarse loner who enjoys his freedom and is not about to let a red-haired temptress interrupt his life. The heroine is an innocent, stubborn spitfire who can't cook but knows a good man when she finds one. She'll keep him, and you'll want to keep this one for a good night's read.
Their journey from Colorado to California is full of danger and treachery. Jed is anxious to reach their destination and get a quick annulment; otherwise, he can't promise to continue to keep his hands to himself. Rachell has other plans -- plans that involve seducing a reluctant bridegroom. (Harlequin, Apr., 350 pp., $5.50)
