Now 0.99! Diana Rennie, daughter of a wealthy rancher, attempts to persuade mystery man Del Russell to leave his grievances behind and forgive her father for past mistakes. Her careful plan goes awry and results in a shotgun wedding and a prison sentence for Del.
Four years later, Del is back in her life with a vengeance—back for his rightful share of Diana’s ranch, back to prove he isn’t the criminal she thought he was, back to finish what the two of them started years ago in a smoldering daze. And he isn’t going anywhere, no matter what beautiful, treacherous Diana does or says to try to get rid of him.
They spend a year battling each other and the elements – wildfires, blizzards, wilderness treks, drought. When the house that means everything to Diana burns down and she loses her baby, she becomes addicted to morphine provided by a man who covets the ranch and would kill to get what he wants.
Two stubborn, strong-willed people, two opposing views, their battles become as legendary as the ranch they both love and must fight together to save.
Cat Dubie’s love of words began early – she was making rhymes soon after learning to talk. With a crayon in hand she first drew stories, with a pencil she wrote them.
