The new gunslinger in town. The rancher's daughter. They share the same dangerous secret - magic.
Silas Vendine is a mage and a bounty hunter, on the hunt for renegade mages in the sparsely-settled Wildings. When he rides into the town of Bitterbush Springs on the trail of strange, dark magic, he lands in the middle of a deadly feud - and discovers that a local rancher's daughter is hiding a dangerous secret.
Lainie Banfrey has been taught all her life that wizards are unnatural creatures with no heart and no soul. If anyone finds out she has magical powers, she could end up on the wrong end of a hanging rope. But when a gunslinger shows up searching for the man who has brought Lainie's hometown to the brink of open warfare, she learns that he shares her secret and agrees to help him.
As they find themselves falling for each other - an attraction forbidden by the strict laws of the Mage Council - Silas and Lainie must find and stop the renegade mage before the dark power he has unearthed destroys everyone who makes the Wildings their home.
