Texas, Spring of 1888.

Esme Duval wants nothing more than to return to Honey Creek, Texas, to the ranch she’s inherited. Her father and brothers think she doesn’t deserve it. Her neighbor, Luke Crosby, thinks she has no business running four hundred acres of prime ranch land and he’ll do anything to prove it to her. Not so many years ago, Luke was her ally, her hero and her secret love, now he threatens everything she holds dear. When Esme comes back to claim her property, will Luke once again come to her defense, or will he seize the opportunity to blackmail her into his arms?

From Chapter Two

“Drink this. It’ll help you sleep tonight,” he murmured. “You’re probably not used to sleeping in a tent.”

She was a skittish, wild filly, keeping her distance and avoiding his gaze. For some reason she was fearful. Why, he couldn’t fathom, but one thing he knew for certain was that he was just the man for Esme Duval. There was a reason she’d returned. They belonged together. He’d keep his seduction slow, unravel the knots that bound her just a little at a time, easing up close enough to gentle her.

Nolan watched her sip the drink and laughed when she made a face. He drained his in one draught. “Better give her two. The chupacabra hates whiskey. Bet you want to know how I know that, huh, Miss Esme?”

“I’d rather hear it in the morning.” Esme took another sip of her drink and shuddered. “My brothers would be laughing if they could see me. I never wanted to go camping with them, and look at me now.”

Luke dropped to sit on a blanket. He lay on his side, propped up on one elbow, and sipped his whiskey. “Is your family coming soon?”

Esme stared into the flames. “No. They think I’m waiting until the school year is over to claim Simon’s place. They plan to come bully me out of the land.”

Luke stilled. “They don’t know you’re here?”

“Not exactly.”

“Ooo, shit,” said Nolan.

The two boys were playing cards on a nearby blanket and snickered when they heard Nolan’s profanity.

Luke stared at her. “Do they know I offered to buy the ranch from you?”

“I don’t recall,” Esme said.

“Your memory’s a little sketchy?” Nolan asked.

Luke drained his glass, got up and returned with the bottle of whiskey. He tipped more into Esme’s glass before refreshing his own. Esme took a larger swallow and found this time it didn’t burn quite as much. She didn’t drink spirits, just a little wine every so often. It wasn’t something her father approved of, even though he didn’t apply the rule to himself.

She began to feel the liquor’s effects as the moon peeped over the horizon. She watched it rapidly climb into the sky, a full moon casting a warm glow on the ridges, hills and meadows. The trees, giant oaks with limbs hanging almost to the ground, were washed in silver light. The boys, David and Joseph, played quietly at a game of cards. Nolan gazed thoughtfully into the campfire. When she turned to look at Luke, she found him studying her.

“Why did you come back after all these years?” he asked quietly. “I didn’t think I’d ever see you again.”
