That is, until things take a deadly turn. She's a raven who's clipped her wings... Raven Maiski's thrilled Old Man Harte is dead. But she's not happy about the return of his son, Aidan--her soul mate and enemy--who promised never to step foot back in Chatanika. If she doesn't run him out of town fast, he'll uncover what she's hidden from him. When word of the miser's death spreads, danger erupts in a hunt for gold that will either lead to redemption...or blood. A Peek Inside "Why do I care? You were everything to me, Raven. I loved you. There wasn't anything I wouldn't do for you. And you knew it. Why else would I have left you when it was the last thing in the world I ever wanted to do?" It hurt to breathe. Her heart raced, and the room seemed to be closing in on her. "I gotta go." "Damn it, Raven." Aidan grabbed her again and yanked her into this arms. His eyes--hurt and troubled--stared into hers. She knew he wanted to say something else, but then his tortured gaze fell to her lips. He groaned and crushed his mouth to hers. She whimpered, a little with fear, a little with excitement, and a lot with need. His arms came around her, squeezing her to his chest like he was afraid she'd slip away. She tasted desperation but didn't know if was his or hers, and the sweet, sweet taste of memories of what could have been. Her arms stretched of their own accord. Her body began doing things she didn't want it to do. Like rubbing against him, arching into his erection, cradling it with her heat. He groaned and swiveled on his one good leg until the back of her legs were against the bed. Then he lowered her down to the mattress. *Bonus material.
