Ride the Fire by Pamela ClareSometimes survival isnt just about staying alive...
Widowed and alone on the frontier, Elspeth Stewart will do whatever it takes to protect herself and her unborn child from the dangers of the wilderness and of men. Though her youthful beauty doesnt show it, she is broken and scarred from the way men have treated her. So when a stranger wanders onto Bethies land, wounded and needing her aid, she takes no risks, tying him to the bed and hiding his weapons before ministering to his injuries.
But Bethies defenses cannot keep Nicholas Kenleigh from breaking down her emotional walls. The scars on his body speak of a violent past, but his gentleness, warmth, and piercing eyes arouse longings in her that she never imagined she had. As Nicholas and Bethie reveal to each other both their hidden desires and their tortured secrets, they discover that riding the flames of their passion might be the key to burning away the nightmare of their pasts.

RIDE THE FIRE
Sexy, sensitive and resourceful frontiersman Nicholas Kenleigh, Clare's gloriously larger-than-life hero, will seduce readers as he wins the heart of young widow Elspeth Stewart. Elspeth is eight months pregnant and struggling to survive without the help of a man when a wounded Nicholas comes along and demands her aid. Smart enough not to say no to a scruffy-looking trapper with a revolver, Elspeth takes him in, tends to his wound and then ties him up for her own protection. What follows is a taut, sensual adventure during which the two protagonists find love and discover that braving the many hardships of the frontier and the dark corners of their pasts is best done together. Through her tight plotting and deft descriptions of the Ohio wilderness, Clare keeps the suspense level high.
