Product Description

Product Description

It’s the hottest city in the U.S., and it’s not just the weather that’s heating up.
Kim Gatlin, ambitious archaeologist and college professor, is taking the spring semester off to do a survey of a remarkable rock art site in Yuma, Arizona. The wild remote desert also holds gun-toting locals and desperate refugees, but the biggest hazard proves to be Bureau of Land Management geologist Claudine “Randi” Randall. Their mutual appreciation of the petroglyphs ought to bring them together, but Kim’s academic goals and Randi’s sense of ownership have them clashing from the word go.

Randi, a tough girl whose fears about her past haunt her every move, is reluctant to acknowledge the other type of sparks that fly whenever she and Kim are forced into each other’s company. Professional resentment seems only to fan the heat threatens to burn them both.

The beauty and mystery of the Sonoran Desert provide the vibrant backdrop for Robbi McCoy’s (Waltzing at Midnight, Songs Without Words) passionate story of two women forced to question everything they thought they knew about themselves before they can risk their fiery hearts on the biggest gamble of all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 1 Oct. 2010
By TerryB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kim Gatlin is an archaeologist and college professor. She is in Arizona to do a survey on the rock art in the area. Claudine Randall (Randi) is a geologist working for The Bureau of Land Management. The two women are at loggerheads with each other from the first time they meet. Randi's past comes back to interfere with the present. Kim will be returning to her teaching post in Sacramento. With all these odds stacked against them, they both find they have an attraction to one another that they are both wary of. Will they be able to overcome every thing to have a life together?
This is a lovely book. It is much more than just a romance. There is a well told storyline and the descriptions of the desert are so vivid I could almost feel the heat of it all. I have loved all of Robbi's books and this one is no exception. A delight to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Desert Romance a good read 12 Feb. 2011
By S. Jary
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this novel on a whim and am now counting it one of those serendipitous finds that makes impulse buying such fun!
The novel centres on a taciturn BLM worker (US government department looking after landscapes, think National Trust on big scale!) and a visiting archaeologist. It is formulaic, in so far as they women immediately dislike one another then become increasingly attracted, but that isn't the point. Whilst this is a romance, I think the real romance is with the landscape and the history of the setting. McCoy writes so vividly about the desert around Yuma, the flora and forna, the people and their history that you immediately want to travel there. If she isn't sponsored by Arizona travel they are missing a trick! So whilst the romance developing, with side plots of old girlfriends, misunderstandings, rivals and a mystery involving lost Gold and an unpleasant villain, is all very well what kept me spellbound was the beauty and evident love McCoy has for the area.
If it seems like I am dismissing the plot, forgive me, whilst formulaic at a basic level it is well developed and has some interesting nuances with the women's history and psychology that raise it above the run-of-the-mill romance. The real star, however, is the desert itself.
Buy this book: If you like beautiful settings, slow pace and complex characters.
Don't buy: If you're looking for pacy action or lighweight fluff.
