Troy Pendleton doesn't know how he got roped in to tracking Senada "e;Sin"e; Calhoun all the way to a two-bit Texas saloon. But he's got orders from his family not to come back to Tennessee without her, or the truth about why she left.The sultry bar manager tries to send Troy packing, but the desire in her eyes has him staying put. Sin's every bit as tempting as her name suggests-it's a good thing Troy's not stupid enough to fall in love...Sin's not interested in confiding in Troy about why she fled to her hometown. She learned a long time ago not to count on any man, and she's not going to start with the youngest and most overbearing of the Pendleton brothers. Yet denied other sensual pleasures, she's soon indulging in a passion-filled night with the too-rugged, too-masculine Troy. When morning comes, will she be able to trust him with her secrets-and her heart?
