Pampered, pretty Leeza Nelson had reluctantly agreed to watch over her friends' orphanage ranch in New Mexico. So when one of the children ran away, it was up to her to find him. But journeying into the wilderness with dark, brooding Apache tracker James Daggert was more than the sophisticated city girl had bargained for. The mysterious man vowed to bring the child back safely, but sparing Leeza from his pent-up desire was a promise he refused to make. As they raced to save the boy from a serial killer - the same man who had murdered Daggert's child - Leeza knew it was only a matter of time before she lost the battle of wills against her passionate warrior protector and surrendered, body and soul.
