Sandra Chastain unravels the story of an unconventional beauty who refuses to back down from a challenge—or a handsome loner with a taste for trouble.
Dallas Burke has come to Willow Creak, Wyoming, to find her brother’s killer, and she has no intention of being scared off—not by roughnecks trashing her newspaper office, nor by the ruggedly handsome rancher who warns her of more violence. And he has indeed given Dallas something to think about—namely, what it would be like to take a roll in the hay with this strapping, sun-bronzed cowboy.
The way Jake Silver sees it, the last thing Willow Creek needs is a muckraking journalist inflaming both sides of a deadly range war. What he doesn’t know is that Dallas has her own plan to end the fighting: enlisting the townswomen to seduce their husbands and sweethearts into laying down their guns. But it is Jake’s own reaction to the lovely Dallas that surprises him most of all, leaving him aching with desire—and willing to risk everything to accept her irresistible proposal.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Mistletoe and Magic, Claimed, and After the Kiss.
About Sandra Chastain
As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies.
I wouldn't change a thing about my life, for my family is a living expression of the love I write about. When I create a romance for you, I'm telling stories of love and commitment, and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from writing about happily ever after. --Sandra Chastain
