The war had robbed Helen Burke Courtney of her money and her husband. All she had left was her coastal Alabama farm, a broken-down plow horse, a cat, and her pride, but she meant to fight to hold on to them all against her creditors ... against fate itself.
Captain Kurt Northway of the Union Army might be the answer to her prayers, or a way to get to hell a little faster. He rode up, his young son on the saddle before him, and asked for work. Helen needed a man's help to plant her crops; she didn't know if she could stand to have a damned, handsome Yankee to do it.
Despite the past that made them enemies, Kurt was struggling to raise his son alone, not looking to take advantage of a woman or retaliate for the deep pain haunting his soul. So Helen took him in, though the entire town turned against her. He respected her; he didn't dare to touch her. Yet both felt the passion igniting between them, a fire that could destroy them both... or a gift of healing, if they dared to risk their hearts.
