Summary

An Arizona mountain man saves a woman from a bitter range war in this classic western adventure by the author of Riders of the Purple Sage.   Enjoying his solitude in Arizona’s White Mountains, Milt Dale has little reason to descend into town. He has no interest in the gossip and strife of townsfolk, and as a skilled hunter and woodsman, all his needs are met in the splendor of the forest. But while taking shelter from a storm in an abandoned hut, Dale overhears a nefarious plot he cannot ignore.   A local landowner has hired a gang to kidnap the niece of a prominent rancher. When Dale’s warnings go unheeded, he takes it upon himself to protect the young woman and her kid sister. Away from the menace of civilization, Dale brings them to the rugged safety of mountain trails. But beyond the untamed forest, danger awaits.

    'Lush, dark, utterly real and above all achingly romantic' RUTH WARE
     
    In high society England, gossip and scandal are traded over afternoon tea and the country is awash with rumour.
     
    In Lady Hester's opinion, it's just typical that the wickedest gossip of all focuses on her beautiful, impossible husband Crow. Damaged aristocrat, soldier, spy, Crow loves Hester fiercely, but he has a wild past and rumours of a child with his black hair and grey eyes wound Hester more deeply than she is willing to admit. And yet London blazes with a far more lethal whispering campaign that threatens the safety of their own little daughter, Morwenna. Crow's enemies want him tried for treason and soon Morwenna herself is in mortal danger. Hester may love Crow as much as he loves her, but now their baby's life is at risk. There's nothing she won't do to protect their child. So when clever, worldly-wise Countess Lieven drops her guard and says, 'Run... take your baby, Hester, and run,' Hester does exactly that.
     
    Accused of high treason, Crow will do anything to save Hester and Morwenna, even if that means accepting a final mission that might just end in losing them both for good.
