He's the last bachelor standing among the men of Hell's Eight, and he'll settle for nothing less than passion
Unencumbered by wife or family, Luke Bellen is the obvious member of Hell's Eight to lead a treacherous trek across Comanche territory. But Luke suspects he will never know another minute's peace when photographer Josey Kinder joins the wagon train. Whip-smart Josey has a voluptuous figure, a sunny disposition and a knack for getting into dangerous scrapes in pursuit of a perfect shot. She's beyond maddening. Luke thinks Josey's too young, too sweet to be despoiled by the rough life and hard-bitten land he loves.
But independent Josey won't let any manhowever commandingdecide what's best for her. Beneath their playful banter is a powerful current of lustpure, but not so simple. If only Luke weren't so damned proper, he'd see that the years between them don't matter a whit, not when a single touch can set them both ablaze. Josey's hell-bent on keeping Luke in the picture
if the vengeful bandits on their trail don't find them first.
