STANDING OUTSIDE THE FIRE
Boone Devlin is about to encounter Stallion Pass' legend firsthand. Legend has it that anyone who sees the wild stallion will soon find love. But all Boone has found so far is a lady in distress who quickly proves she can fend for herself. When Boone convinces his mystery lady to accompany him for dinner, he finds out he'll be working with Erin at the ranch he's come to run. And determined Erin soon finds herself giving in to Boone's seduction. Sara Orwig's Standing Outside the Fire (3) is a bit stilted and does too much telling rather than showing.
