Maddy and Blanche Saylor settle in Cofield, Texas, after the Civil War took everything from them and left their brother, Derek, labeled an outlaw. When the townsfolk learn who their brother is, they snub the sisters, threatening their dress shop's success.

But John Ballard takes an interest in Maddy. John is a Pinkerton agent determined to bring Derek in. John keeps an eye on Maddy, but doesn't count on falling in love with her. He knows what Maddy does not-that their passion is rare. So when he saves her from being killed and she surrenders to her desire, they are both confused. Maddy wonders if she has betrayed her brother and John must think of his job. Meanwhile, Blanche is attracted to Hank Vann, a bounty hunter who's after Derek for the reward money. These two lovers decide to put their differences aside.

What neither John nor Hank realize is that the Saylor sisters are more than capable of taking care of themselves and the men they love, including Derek.

UNTAMED HEARTS is a truly wonderful double love story filled with lots of obstacles to overcome and heroines you admire, envy and cheer for. There is humor, action and sensuality. Kudos to Ms. Garrett! VERY SENSUAL (Oct., 381 pp., $4.99)
