Big, blond and defiant, David Kane refused his family’s plans for a dynastic marriage, escaping to the California gold fields with an Irish saloon girl he had won in a poker game. The mirror image of his sire, David became one of San Francisco’s self-made millionaires. He could not guess what his run of fortune would cost the woman he loved.

Wrenched from the seminary in his last year, Miguel had always been ignored by his father…until the shy bookish youth agreed to save their southern California estates by wedding a spoiled beauty who resented the forced match as much as he. Although Mike excelled at running the vast Kane holdings, he was an insecure young husband, deceived into believing his wife had betrayed him.

Miguel and Ellie were caught in a web of treachery when they inherited their fathers’ huge ranches. Only with the return of the prodigal David and his Kate did the brothers and their women unravel an evil that had driven them apart and threatened their very lives.

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
