After six years at a Philadelphia finishing school, former tomboy Emma Malloy was coming home to Whisper Valley, Montana, a sophisticated lady. Little did she know that the decades-old feud between the Malloys and the Garrettsons had escalated into a full-scale range war. Nor did she expect that her archenemy, Tucker Garrettson, whose stolen kiss she still couldn't forget, had become a rugged, handsomer-than-sin cowboy who wanted to hang her father and take her prisoner--in his arms. She was proud, beautiful, and bossy. And even though Emma was a Malloy, Tucker wanted her badly. Here they were caught in a blood feud and all he wanted to do was take her once and get her out of his mind. No man could outgun him, but could this infuriating beauty make him surrender his freedom and believe in love?
