Antonie Ramirez could ride and shoot. She had come to Texas to aid the man who had saved her father's life years before. Royal Bancroft didn't know who was behind the outlaws trying to drive him off his land, but he would fight to the death rather than lose it. Yet with his sister and brother kidnapped, he felt defeated--until Antonie rode into his life--and his heart.
Antonie Ramirez could ride and shoot as well as any man--and better than most. Now, the headstrong beauty had come to Texas to honor her father's last words: find the cattle rancher named Royal Bancroft and repay him for saving their lives long ago. Royal Bancroft didn't know who was behind the outlaws trying to drive him off his land, but he would fight to the death rather than lose it. Yet with his sister and brother kidnapped, he felt defeat run through him like a chill wind...until a girl with cornsilk hair and a steady gunhand rode into his life. Antonie was wild, hard, and hurting inside, and Royal knew from the moment he saw her, that if he tried to tame her, he'd break her spirit. Instead, he would let her ride with him as an equal partner and fight beside him for a future together...
What if you were scarred and you didn't know why? What if your blood was the aphrodisiac of the underworld? What if your life line is not years but centuries and you couldn't remember any of it? You might not recall that you're seriously involved with a sexy and dangerous vampire (although really he's hard to forget). You might not know why his ex-girlfriend wants you dead, or why an attractive yet psychotic detective is out for your blood. But that's the pitfall of amnesia, I can't remember four years into my past let along four centuries. But I know this my name is Zara, my blood is fire, and everyone's dying for a taste
"The Green Ones favored me this day." Thus begins A Taste of Magic, the latest magical world creation by Andre Norton. Wisteria is magically attuned to the world around her. Her senses relish the tastes of magic that the wonders of nature offer. But the peacefulness of her backwoods existence is shattered when her village is attacked by the raiding force of the bellicose Lord Purvis, who leaves only this twenty-something magic wielder and an adolescent lass as the inadvertent survivors. Wisteria has pledged herself to a mission. Now she and her young ward must brave the wilds beyond their home in pursuit of the ravager who destroyed everyone near and dear to their hearts. The woman with the Taste of Magic now has a taste for vengeance, and the blood oath she has pledged must be satisfied with the life of Lord Purvis.
