Bar owner Raina Harper can't say for sure what Duncan Welch is to her. With her small Nevada town under siege by a ruthless casino development and still reeling from a spate of murders, she knows that trusting the public face of the corporate invaders is risky to say the least. Though, damn, it's one fine-looking face . . . Duncan may be a mercenary when it comes to getting the job done, but he's no villain. In fact, the calculating fixer soon finds himself in the bad guys' crosshairs, framed and facing professional ruin. To clear his name, he'll need help from Raina and her roughneck motorcycle club, the Desert Dogs. Gaining their trust won't be easy, and the molten sexual tension between Raina and Duncan only makes things more complicated-especially since Miah Church, Raina's friend and ex-lover, would sooner strangle Duncan than shake his hand. One thing's certain, though: If they don't deal with their incendiary attraction soon, the whole damn town might go up in flames . . .Cara McKenna delivers . . .
