A passion that won't be denied despite the circumstances. Though Leigh cared deeply for Jim, it was his fiery older brother Tre who held the key to her heart. For the past ten years she's lived with the daily pain of knowing that Tre turned his back on the passion that had flared hot and bright between them. A second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love. Tre knew from the moment that he first saw Leigh stroking his half-wild horse that her elegant, delicate appearance belied the depth and strength of her spirit. He'd dared to make Leigh his own, showing loyalty to nothing and no one beyond the laws of nature that clearly decreed that she was his. When Leigh denied what should have been undeniable, he knew the bitter taste of betrayal. Now a family tragedy has forced Tre and Leigh together once again. Guilt, anger and betrayal rage between them, but so does a desire hot enough to incinerate all else in its wake.
