Publisher's Summary

Reba Farrall was lost - until a kindly old gentleman took her under his wing and helped heal her shattered spirit. Now her dearest friend is gone, leaving her with a doubting, broken heart...and half-interest in a California gem mine.

But Chance Walker has burst into Reba's life - a daring adventurer who believes in nothing except the priceless uncut stones for which he searches the earth.

In the blistering heat of Death Valley - in the intoxicating presence of a jewel more exquisite than any he has ever seen - Chance must confront a dire peril that stalks the sad and sensuous beauty. For only he can save Reba Farrall from harm - and only she can teach him how to love.

What the Critics Say

"Laural Merlington keeps the action going, quickening the pace during the headstrong lovers' fights. Their lovemaking is tantalizing as Merlington's voice grows rough and sensuous." (AudioFile)

    "Pretty Good Story"

    The story was good but the audio production wasn't, it cleared up in the later part of the book but the beginning was pretty bad. Laural Merlington has read many books, but her voice for the male lead was pretty awful. I had to check several times to be sure it was her reading the story. I gave a 2 star rating for the performance as it almost made me give up.
    This story is about a gem mine, and the length the male lead was willing to go to acquire it. Well it would seem he wasn't the only one interested in the mine as it had been abandoned and forgotten for years. So enter the bad guys. It ends as one may suspect, but again it is the journey. Before purchase listen to the sample first.
