“You come back, ’kay? Promise?”
Katja Black was just five when she waved farewell to the Steeles as they left Fort Ellis. That was a decade ago. Kat has since matured into a lovely flame-haired Fire-Caller like her mother, while remaining as logical and self-controlled as her father. But despite her practical, rational view of life and her cool exterior, Kat still holds on to the secret hope that someday Jonathan Steele will return for her.
Then, while visiting family in Texas, Kat’s orderly life becomes a nightmare when a madman bent on revenge abducts her from the train carrying her home. She manages to escape and flees into the deadly Pecos River valley, only to find refuge in the strangest place imaginable—a cattle drive heading up the Pecos Trail.
Jon Steele doesn’t hate his life as a cowboy. He just wishes it weren’t so dang lonely. Between his occupation, his Fae blood, and a family curse, he’s spent most of the past ten years with nothing but the wind and the sky and thousands of stinkin’ cows for company. He misses the Blacks something fierce, especially the gap-toothed little girl who used to follow him everywhere. The last thing he expected was to stumble across her down here in Texas, fleeing the very same ghost who still haunts his own dreams.
Trailing cattle is a dangerous job to begin with, but it soon becomes all too clear that most of the trouble the herd encounters is man-made: Kat is still being hunted. And when their shared nightmare becomes reality, Kat and Jon must tap their hidden strengths, and the strength they draw from being together, in order to survive.
Although Fire comes at her call and Water obeys his command, it is the strength of their bond that
must sustain them if they are to find their way safely home again.
But will it be enough?
Available very, very soon!
