Her father's last wish was for Angie Webster to marry wealthy rancher Barrett McClain, a man twice her age. Angie, repulsed by McClain's lecherous attention, is attracted to his sensuous son, Pecos. The devilishly handsome cowboy thinks Angie is a fortune hunting prostitute, better known as Angel.

Angie and Pecos's love/hate relationship explodes into passion when he seduces her and again when he returns after his father's death. A foolish misunderstanding tears the lovers apart. Only when the truth behind Pecos' parentage and Angie's identity are revealed can their distrust turn to love.

Nan Ryan's tale of a na ve beauty and a wild cowboy scorches hotter then the Texas sun and will entrance readers who missed this classic the first time. She has created the ultimate bad boy hero in Pecos (a James Dean/ Sean Penn with Bruce Willis' humor) and Angie is woman enough to tame his spirit. The authentic backdrop combines with these remarkable characters, making this a novel to treasure. SEXY (Reissue, March, 476 pp., $5.99)
