By Kathleen Creighton
Katherine Taylor Winslow, reigning queen of American romance and confirmed city girl, yearned for old–fashioned heroes — men who could put the fire of passion in a woman’s blood or the chill of fear in a man’s heart with no more than a look. Cole Grayson had been called the Last Swashbuckler, rightful heir to Flynn’s sword and Gable’s grin, an eighteenth–century man in a twenty–first–century world. His name was box–office gold and the world was hungry for knowledge about him. Why had Grayson had agreed to let her write his biography, when he’d steadfastly refused so many others? Maybe the idea of having the queen of romantic fiction write the life story of the king of romantic heroes appealed to his sense of humor. Riding horses together across the Sierras, far from city’s comforts and distractions, Katherine discovered that America’s heart-throb was indeed a hero, despite his determination to convince her otherwise. She loved him for introducing her to the wild, and for reigniting her passion, but could she make him realize his own desire for her?
