Jim Slade has his hands full. Not only does he own one of the largest ranches in the fledgling Republic of Texas; but he is a long time secret agent of President Sam Houston. To make matters even more complicated, he begins to suspect that his aristocratic fiancée may be a spying for the Mexican government eager to reconquer the Republic. He does not need anymore trouble…but he gets it when Charlee McAllister comes crashing into his life in search of her ne'er-do-well brother.

Not much larger than her scrofulous tomcat Hellfire, the pint-sized Missouri hill girl turns life on Bluebonnet Ranch upside down, gets tangled up with a British agent playing his own version of “Texas Hold ‘em,” finds herself kidnapped by a vicious commanchero, and drives an enraged Slade to distraction. He either wants to strangle her or bed her or maybe do both at the same time.

But Charlee’s fate, as well as that of the Republic is on the line, and a man has to do what a man has to do.

About the Author

SHIRL HENKE lives in St. Louis, where she enjoys gardening in her yard and greenhouse, cooking holiday dinners for her family and listening to jazz. In addition to helping brainstorm and research her books, her husband Jim is “lion tamer” for their two wild young tomcats, Pewter and Sooty, geniuses at pillage and destruction.
Shirl has been a RITA finalist twice, and has won three Career Achievement Awards, an Industry Award and three Reviewer’s Choice Awards from Romantic Times.
“I wrote my first twenty-two novels in longhand with a ballpoint pen—it’s hard to get good quills these days,” she says. Dragged into the twenty-first century by her son Matt, a telecommunication specialist, Shirl now uses two of those “devil machines.” Another troglodyte bites the dust. Please visit her at
