“[Vivian Vaughan] can always be counted on to deliver a moving, tender romance.” —AFFAIRE DE COEUR
Catarina Ramériz, daughter of a ranch cook, wanted nothing more than to marry her oldest friend Monte Ballou. But the morning after he proposes, he disappears, along with Catarina’s hope for a future with true love.
Six years later, Monte has returned, determined to ride a dangerous stallion in the Fourth of July Rodeo. Still deeply in love with her childhood sweetheart, Catarina vows to do whatever necessary to stop Monte from riding the ferocious horse—and maybe save his life.
But even as buried feelings and forgotten promises find their way back to the surface, Monte is promised to someone else. Will Monte and Catarina find their way back to each other before their love is extinguished forever?
