He Took Her by Surprise . . .
Meg Britton grew up on the railroads, working proudly at her father's side. Nothing was going to stop them from setting the rails clear to Silver Creek, Texas -- certainly not some crazy prospector who shot wildly at the survey crew and pulled up their stakes! As Meg set out to confront the old coot, she planned her strategy with cool precision. But soon she was speechless with shock. For instead of a harmless geezer, she found a boldly-handsome stranger whose determination matched her own.
She Caught Him off Guard . . .
Kalib Chaney had his reasons for wanting the railroad to take a sharp detour and they were nobody's business but his own. He'd been prepared to take on a small army, too, so one slender girl was not likely to force him to surrender. Still, she made a lovely diversion, with that chestnut hair flying about her shoulders and those green eyes flashing with fury. And before he could begin to list the reasons why he should stay away from her, he took her in his arms, eager to taste her kisses.
