Alone, afraid, beautiful Leigh Bransom was about to deliver her child beside a deserted Texas highway. Gratefully she accepted the help of a handsome, dirt-streaked stranger... and in the excitement of the moment a special feeling sparked between them.
Months later, the stranger returns, now a sophisticated, commanding figure. With one look, the longing kindled on that shimmering road explodes into flames of passion. Too late, Leigh resists. Too late, she learns she has fallen for a man who lives as recklessly, as dangerously, as the husband she loved... and lost.
