In the drought-stricken wastelands that arose out of an apocalypse, Adam McClain never thought himself the hero. Kicked out of the town he created, and shunned by his friends when they discovered what he was, he's managed to find work as a bounty hunter. After all, who best to hunt the wargs and reivers that haunt the Badlands, than one of the monsters themselves?
She's the one woman he can't have...
Mia Grey learned the hard way that men can't be trusted, and when McClain strides into her bar she knows trouble just walked in. The rugged bounty hunter is her greatest weakness, but he's hiding something and the last time a man kept secrets from her, she got her fingers burned. Tempting as he is, Mia's staying far away.
But when a horde of reivers captures her sister, the only person Mia can turn to is the one man who tempts her to break all of her rules. Together they might be able to rescue her sister, but what will happen when Mia learns of the secret McClain is hiding? And when the man who broke Mia's heart in the first place discovers the same secret, will McClain survive?
