Logan Prescott was run out of Stanton, Texas, eight years ago, a battered and broken young man. Now he's back, richer, more successful and better looking than any man has a right to be. His mission:to destroy J.T. Malone and his daughter Rachel. The father battered Logan's body and the daughter broke Logan's heart. Now it's time for the Malones to pay the price. Logan never imagines that his revenge will take his heart hostage and his captor will be beautiful, sexy and independent Rachel. Rachel knows Logan will never believe how the past has haunted her, how sorry she is that he was hurt because of her.

UNDENIABLE is aptly named. No reader will be able to deny the universal appeal of Ms. Ray's hero and heroine-a long, tall Texan hero who's a '90s version of Wild Bill Hickock with a dash of James Bond thrown in, and a current-day Calamity Jane with just enough Scarlett O'Hara in her to do what Calamity never could. (She gets her man!)

This novel has more secrets, twisting curves and rip-roaring fights than an old-time western saloon. Francis Ray's fresh inimitable style of storytelling has assured her the success she deserves and the acclaim she's earned. Readers, run, don't walk, to your nearest bookseller and buy this book. (Apr., 256 pp., $4.99)
