A LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP

Overview

A LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP

Rachel Rutledge had her gun trained on Noble Vincente. With one shot, she would have her revenge on the man who killed her father. She'd known that one day he would return to Texas. But Texas wasn't big enough for the two of them, and now her moment of truth had finally arrived.

So what was stopping her from pulling the trigger? Perhaps it was the memory of Noble's tesing voice, his soft smile, or the way one glance from his dark Spanish eyes had once stirred her foolish heart to longing. Yes, she had loved him then...as much as she hated him now. One way or another, she would wound him to the heart—if not with bullets, then with her own feminine wiles. But as Rachel was soon to discover, sometimes the line between love and hate is too thinly drawn. Sometimes there is no stopping a deep, smoldering anger from erupting into flames of desire.

Excerpt


She Had Sworn To Kill Him . . .

The rifle rose slowly and a feminine hand lightly touched the stock to take deadly aim at the man she intended to kill. With lethal accuracy, Rachel Rutledge swung the barrel downward until it was dead-center with Noble Vincente's heart. The rifle followed him as he dismounted and led his horse to the creek to drink. Her finger touched the trigger as hatred burned within her, almost cutting off her breath. She silently shifted her position so she could steady her aim, all the while watching Noble's every move. There was no hurry because she had waited five years for this moment; a little while longer wouldn't make any difference.

But Was Love Stronger Than Hate . . .

Rachel suddenly felt faint. With effort she drug air into her longs, speculating if the sensation was caused by dread or expectation. Reverend Robinson had once preached a sermon on how Satan came disguised in beauty, and Noble Vicente was certainly a man created in beauty, and surely Satan's own disciple. There had not been a day since Noble had left that she hadn't thought of him and prayed for his death. Damn him, now she would see her father avenged at last!
