"He stumbled into her life one cold, bitter day, almost dead from a bullet in his side. Instinctively, Rachel Yoder reached out to help the stranger, for kindness was in her nature. What she could not know was that this simple act of mercy would forever change her life and challenge her deepest beliefs." "Until then, life for Rachel Yoder had been a straight path, however brutal. She had come to Montana with her family and a scattering of other "Plain People," an Amish sect which had fled the corrupting influences that threatened to destroy their simple way of life. In this wild new territory, she had married Ben Yoder, also raised as part of the sect, yet blessed with a passion and a humor that belied his severe upbringing." "So when he was killed - hanged by a vigilante posse that falsely accused him of stealing cattle from a neighboring ranch owned by a powerful and ruthless man they called the Baron, abetted by his mysterious wife, Ailsa, and his headstrong half-breed son, Quinten - she felt an emptiness in her heart that she knew would never go away. But then the outsider appeared in her life, and from that moment on, nothing would be the same." "Yet despite all the warnings, despite the efforts of her brothers and of Noah Weaver - himself a widower who once had courted her - Rachel invited the outsider into her life, hiring him to work the ranch with her. In her heart, she thought she might change him, but she had not reckoned on the irresistible lure of the gun that he kept ever at the ready. Nor had she reckoned that it was his willingness to use it and his skill at killing that would someday prove her salvation."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This book is so well-written and it's loaded with sexual tension. A story of forbidden love between a reserved/repressed/religious pioneer woman and the dark, handsome, dangerous outlaw unfolds brilliantly. The relationships between characters and subplots Williamson creates makes this book one you can't put down. Worth reading over and over again - or at least skipping to re-read the good parts!
