USA Today bestselling author Beverly Jenkins returns with the first book in a breathtaking new series set in the Old West

Rhine Fontaine is building the successful life he's always dreamed of--one that depends upon him passing for White. But for the first time in years, he wishes he could step out from behind the façade. The reason: Eddy Carmichael, the young woman he rescued in the desert. Outspoken, defiant, and beautiful, Eddy tempts Rhine in ways that could cost him everything . . . and the price seems worth paying.

Eddy owes her life to Rhine, but she won't risk her heart for him. As soon as she's saved enough money from her cooking, she'll leave this Nevada town and move to California. No matter how handsome he is, no matter how fiery the heat between them, Rhine will never be hers. Giving in for just one night might quench this longing. Or it might ignite an affair as reckless and irresistible as it is forbidden . . .

this was my first book by this author who has been recommended by many blogs and reviews. It was indeed very interesting, especially with the two characters being Black and showing how different upbringing/class/money can greatly affect what you can do and who you could be. Eddie is fabulous as your main character and has been fully written, and Rhine makes for an interesting foil. It was missing a little something for me that I can't quite put my finger on (humour? more peril? sizzle?) but it is a worthwhile read.
