Lady Barbara Chamberlain has the face of an angel, the polish of London's most elite drawing rooms and the cunning of a cat. Orphaned at a young age, she and her brother, Charles, have made a living off the gullibility of rich strangers. But Charles's scheming has landed him in prison, and Barbara desperately needs funds to help him escape.
Her plan seemed simple enough: Convince Lieutenant Zachariah Morgan to present her to his mother, then produce documents to claim to a portion of Louise Morgan's fortune in Oklahoma Territory. After years of playing seductress, however, Barbara is now caught in her own snare. The devilishly handsome Zach confounds her with kisses and kindness. Even more confusing, he seems willing to put aside his doubts, though he knows that she's lied to him.
But their reckless passion will find its own perils in this wild land. As treachery and unseen danger play out, Barbara will be forced to risk all that she holds dear--including her untamed heart.
