During the Battle of the Wilderness, Union Major Chase Whitlaw shoots a Rebel soldier, just as they're both cut down by a terrible explosion. As the Reb lies dying, he begs Whitlaw to return a locket to his wife, Libby, in New Mexico and tell her he loves her.
Chase half-heartedly agrees, until Libby's picture in the locket becomes his touchstone, helping him to survive his injuries.
In New Mexico, Chase finds Libby in desperate straits and offers help instead of truth.
Libby's horse ranch, plagued by unexplained accidents, is failing. Until the arrival of the war-scarred stranger, a neighbor's unwelcome offer of marriage was the only way to save her son's inheritance.
But now, she has Chase. Working side-by-side, their passion becomes undeniable until Chase's truth is revealed.
Now, Libby must decide: forgive or say goodbye forever.
"...a splendid tale of strong men, stubborn women, wild horses and a love that heals as it grows." ~Melinda Helfer, Romantic Times

This was a really great story that totally had me guessing till the end. Loved this one!!!!
I loved this book and the whole series and hate to see it end. Barbara Ankrum writes so beautifully, you just cannot help but be swept into each of her books. The heroes and heroines are so thought out and so likeable you root for them all the way to the end. Well thought out secondary characters, most you like, a few you hate and a few you feel sorry for. These books all have some sexual content in them which I do not mind. Very romantic with a little suspense. JudyE
