Left homeless after the Civil War, Rachel Gregory leaves New Orleans and travels by wagon train to her uncles ranch in Texas. On the wagon train is Kid Davis, a handsome, charismatic outlaw being transported to the gallows. He is the kind of cynic that Rachel should despise, but shes irresistibly drawn to him.

When Kid saves her life, he is given permission to drive her team of horses. Then he plans to escape with her as his hostage. Rachel eventually gives him her love and sets out to uncover the secrets of his past.

RENEGADE LOVE is Katherine Sutcliffe at her best. Youll be mesmerized by the intense passion in this hard-hitting, emotion-packed tale that smolders with raw sensuality. Ms. Sutcliffe slowly builds sexual tension until it boils over in the explosive and tender love scenes. This is a keeper! SPICY (May, 400 pp., $6.99)
