Overview

When the stagecoach that is carrying Emma Martin to her new job in Denver is attacked and robbed in the wilds of Colorado, she is the only survivor. Alone and terrified, she is rescued by Luke Butler, a rancher who knows only one way. His way.
When Luke Butler finds Emma Martin, he has no other choice but to bring her back to his ranch. Soon, his life is turned upside down by a female who doesn’t know how to mind and who doesn’t know how to stay put.
The battle that follows is a clash of wills, a test of tempers, and a lesson in love.

Excerpt:
Luke glanced at Emma and gave her a pointed look that meant she was to stay where she was. Then he turned and escorted the sheriff out the door.
"You're not using your brain, man,” the sheriff argued.
"Not your concern," Luke responded sharply.
"She's too soft, Luke. She needs people around her, not just a bunch of rag-tag ranch hands. Let her go back to town with me. I'll keep her safe, I'll see to it that Emma has--"
Luke cut him off. "Stop talking," he growled in a hiss. "She's not up for discussion. You lost your chance to keep her safe when you sent me out there to find her. You need to forget she's here. Emma doesn't exist for you anymore. Don't say her name, don't even think about her."
"Jesus Christ, Luke. You're not even acting sane."
"Don't push me. I'm the only help you've got this side of Silver Creek. You need to move on about your business. You know I'd never hurt her. Soothe your goddamn conscious with that and finish the job you need to be doing. Find the scum that did this. Find 'em and hang 'em high because I don't like the thought of them being alive after seeing her face."
The two men glared at each other before the sheriff turned and mounted his horse.
Luke hesitated only a moment before he slammed back into the house and prowled to the chair where Emma was still sitting. He pulled her up and with a jerk, she stumbled against him.
His arms reached out and encircled her.
"It'll take half an hour before the sheriff is too far away for one of my men to chase him down and bring him back. So you've got that long to decide." One steely arm was wrapped around her back, the other traced a line down her spine and then up again in a smooth caress.
"I thought I'd already decided."
"You need a little more understanding of the situation before you can make a proper decision."
Emma was pleasantly shocked by the intimacy of his touch and held enthralled as she stood in the circle of his arms. She remained mute and concentrated on her breathing that seemed to be rushing in and out of her lungs as if she were completely out of oxygen.
"Fair warning, Emma-girl," his smooth voice was brutal.
"Warning?" she managed to ask.
"I feel inclined to make sure you understand how it’s gonna be while you still have the opportunity to leave. Like I said, in half an hour or so, that option will be taken away from you."
"I'm sure." Her voice was hesitant and didn't sound sure at all.
"Yeah?" His gaze slipped to her mouth and his already dark eyes grew stormy. "Let's hear you repeat that in a few minutes."
Emma had no other warning before his mouth fell on hers.

Meet the Author

Lynda loves words, whether she's reading them or writing them. Having spent countless hours looking for the exact kind of hero ( in print !) that fuels her fantasies, she decided to create him herself. She writes romance novels, novellas and short-stories, all with a dominating, alpha-male hero and a heroine he can't manage to walk away from. Her stories are sometimes shockingly hot and sensual, but are always monogamous and contain only one hero and one heroine. A happy ending is a must!

Lynda has lived her whole life in Texas and resides in Galveston County where she spends most of her free time gardening and transforming her tiny house on the water into a cottage fit for a queen. (or a romance novelist.)

Lynda has been married for twenty-five years to the man of her dreams and has two kids away at college.

    Not what you think....................................................................................................................
    Not what I thought anyway. I've never read Lynda Chance and was afraid it might be just typical cowboy erotica very little plot and loads of generic sex. She should really work on her titles. I decided to trust the reviews and am glad I did. Brand is a strong flawed hero but he can be had. Emma not quite as weak as she seems at first. Sex of course......but in keeping with the story. Not over the top . And a great epilogue. I'd read this author again. Highly recommend.

    Left wanting more

    I felt the plot was rushed and not enough character development. I wanted to know more about Luke. It was okay, and for $2.99 I should ask for much, but it could have been a great book if more thought was put into it.

    Lovely!

    A tough, domineering rancher saves a single woman after a stagecoach robbery. Emma is a virgin,.of course, but also quite inexperience of the ranch life. This story is strictly about their relationship. You thought there might be trouble from the robbers, but it never came to fruition. A little misleading. Luken is very domineering and fearful for Emma's safety constantly. It becomes a little tiresome, however, a good story.

    don't waste your time

    this would have been fine as a novella, but there was so little plot or character development, it fell flat.

    I like all of Lynda Chance's books. I enjoyed this story just not quite as good as her others. No special reason for this thought. I do recommend this to anyone who likes lynda chance it is worth buying.

    Wow, you really need to read this!

    This is an unbelivably sensual book. Sure there's the domineering cowboy, but WOW! Even if he is gruff & bossy the way Luke seduces Emma is wonderful! Why can't men just believe you when you tell them you aren't as fragile as they think you are? So glad Luke helped Emma to recognize how worthy of love she really is, so glad Emma showed Luke what love really is. Understanding & acceptance through all our faults. Don't sit next to your boss at the lunch table while reading this!! Happened to me & it was hard not to squirm through the bedroom scene. Had to mark my place & go out for some fresh air!!! Had to reread it when I got home, it is that sensual!! Enjoy!

    Domineering Cowboy

    There are so many scenes in this book that are great to re-read I wind up rereading the whole thing! Hot In-control Cowboy claims "Cityfied" Lady....yes please! Wish Lynda Chance would write more full length novels.
