Love and danger collide in a treacherous place called Deadman’s Ridge in this spellbinding tale from Iris Johansen.
Descended from a long line of risk takers, Matilda Delaney lives for the thrill of the chase. She has come to Deadman’s Ridge to find the legendary Black Flame opal. But a different excitement ignites when Matilda meets award-winning filmmaker Roman Gallagher. The passion he awakens is more intense than anything on the big screen . . . and a lot more dangerous than the quest for a long-lost treasure.
Roman has come to the violence-plagued mining town to make his latest blockbuster, not to lust after a reckless, cinnamon-haired beauty who wears trouble like a second skin. Past heartache has taught him not to trust the powerful feelings that Matilda arouses. But he’s getting closer to the point of no return. As man’s greed and one irresistible woman lead him down a treacherous road, Roman has to choose: Walk away while he still can . . . or risk it all for the chance to finally slay his demons—and embrace a love beyond price.
