Fire Brand by Diana Palmer (Susan Kyle)
Published: February 1st 1989
Characters: Gaby Cane and Bowie McCayde
ARC by Netgalley for an honest review.
He'll risk his whole heart to save her from the past
Gaby Cane was always a bit afraid of her attraction to Bowie McCayde. Even when she was fifteen and Bowie's family took her in, she had sensed his simmering resentment. Now ten years later, she's an aspiring journalist who can hold her own with any man professionally, the dark shadows of years gone by far behind her. Then Bowie strides back into her life—only this time, he needs her, and the pull of loyalty to his family is too strong to ignore.
When Bowie asked Gaby to help save his family's Arizona ranch, he never expected the girl he once knew to return transformed into a stunning, successful woman. As they work together, Bowie is shocked to find that her innocence and beauty stir a hunger he can't deny. But the rogue rancher can sense something holding her back, and he's determined to uncover the terrible secret Gaby is fighting to keep hidden…

Nossa heroína tem um passado trágico e traumático que vai ressurgir ao longo da história. Eu achei ela muito interessante porque ela é jornalista e destemida no trabalho dela.
Gostei muito do herói pois ele não é um dos ogros da autora.
A química entre os dois é explosiva e a história muito interessante.
A história prende a atenção porque queremos saber sobre o passado da heroína e qual a verdadeira identidade do namorado da mãe do herói e se nossa heroína vai enfrentar o medo dela de intimidade e dar uma chance ao amor do herói.
