Overview

In this dazzling novel from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell, a beauty without means and a man without scruples strike a scandalous bargain that takes them into the heart of desire. . .

No gentleman would guarantee a lady's safety in exchange for her virtue. But that is precisely why Cloud Ryder would never call himself a gentleman. He wants Emily Brockinger the moment he sets eyes on her, and volunteers to guide her and her ward through lawless Colorado territory—if she'll share his bed. Yet to his surprise, the delicate Boston blueblood has a grit and fire that thrill him as no woman ever has. . .

Emily has no choice but to accept Cloud's terms, and no way to control her body's response to the virile, part-Cherokee drifter. The trail is strewn with obstacles, and the dangers only increase once they reach their destination. All his life, Cloud has shunned commitment, but now the only way to keep Emily safe is to open his heart—to the one woman with the passion and power to break it. . .

"The superbly talented Howell never disappoints." —Romantic Times

"The laughter mingles with the tears in any story from the talented pen of Hannah Howell. If you haven't read her before, start now!" —Affair de Coeur

This was an electrifying little read. Enjoyed both characters and loved the family the hero had. Wished his brothers had their own stories. They would make good heroes. Very sweet the in depth love she held for her rogue cowboy. Have reread several times - and I only have few on my reread list.This is a must buy!!!

This story is a must read by one of my favorite authors; the incomparable Hannah Howell I love an unapologetic Bad Boy, and Cloud Ryder is just bad enough to be oh so good! I've already read this book twice in the few days since I bought it; it's just that good; no, make that great!

This starts out on a rather shaky premise. A young girl stranded after an Indian raid with a 3 year old whose parents have also been killed is told by her rescuer that he will save her and take her to civilization but only if she agrees to have sex with him--starting now. Whats a girl to do? Since her only other option is death she of course says yes. That not withstanding she finds passion immediately with Mr Horny. Frankly I would have expected a little resentment at least the first few times. ----- The writing in this book is so good I found myself liking it despite myself. The characters are great and the plot interesting. I'd read it again though the forced sex in the beginning is a bit murky its to good to pass up.
