IN THE HEART OF THE DESERT...
Vala Channing can't decide which is more dangerous--the fact that she's about to take her troubled young son, Davis, trekking in Arizona's perilous Superstition Mountains or that the guide who will lead them is the one man from her past she's never managed to forget.
...LIES A LOVE AS TIMELESS AS THE SANDS
Long ago, when Bram Hunter was a reckless young rebel, he shared an unforgettable night with the shy girl next door--and it changed his life forever. Now he swears he won't let Vala Channing change his life a second time. But out in the canyons and ridges of the desert, under the shadow of the towering Superstitions, he finds himself possessed by an irresistible desire to reclaim the woman who got away.
What begins as a healing adventure for a withdrawn boy quickly becomes something equally thrilling for the two adults who accompany him. For not only will Davis start to come out of his shell, but Vala and Bram will find the intoxicating beauty of the desert wilderness melting the ice around their hearts--until they surrender to the long-simmering passion between them and discover a love that is real and true...and forever.
