Skye Standish, rich, beautiful, and willful, does not want the things that most girls want. She does not want a husband to love, or a life of boring domesticity.
What she wants is freedom, adventure - even danger. And she finds all that on her trip to Mariposa, a country where men settle their differences with guns - a lonely mountainous land where she has been warned it is not safe for a beautiful young woman to travel alone.
But she also finds she has gone too far when a ruthless bandit called El Diablo, "the Devil," takes her to his hideout and holds her prisoner - takes her in his arms and, against her will makes her his wife.
This paperback is in very good condition with some cover wear.
