No Pretense Could Mask Her Desire . . .
Amelia was afraid. Her father's violent outbursts were getting worse, and only when she quelled her own headstrong, independent ways was there any peace - especially since her father was determined that she marry into the powerful Culhane family.
Though smooth, polished, mild-mannered Alan was taken with Amelia's fragile beauty and ways, Amelia was haunted by King Culhane - whose silver eyes could say more with a look than his brother could say with a dictionary. But his temper, like his courage, was legendary in east Texas. Men like King were dangerous.
