Publisher's Summary

Rafe McCay has a bullet in his side and a bounty hunter on his tail. Since there are few doctors in the Arizona Territory, he takes what he can get...literally. Pointing a gun at Dr. Annie Parker, he abducts her into the mountains so she can tend his wounds. In this dangerous wilderness world, Rafe wakens in Annie a woman's hungry desire, as Annie finds a man wounded in soul as well as body. Her healing touch brings him new hope, but the secrets of the past still pursue them. The exhilarating journey they must take together teaches both the true meaning of danger...and of enduring love.

Great Balls of Fire!

Rafe and Anne had an adventure. Rafe was set up and chased across the country by bounty hunters, a U.S. Marshall and a private army by one of the rich men in the country at that time. The papers Rafe has hidden could be a potential historical game changer, and silencing him was the only sure way to protect one of the richest, most influential man in American History. Injured Rafe kidnaps Anne to tend his wounds and decides to keep her. The adventure begins, they are hunted, chased, and walk into an Indian Camp that is plagued with a deadly measles outbreak. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it was a great read, had some hot, steamy sexual scenes, and of course action. I gave it 5 stars because the story kept my interest, and the wonderful narration by the talented Natalie Ross, kept me riveted. Yes she was dramatic in some areas, maybe a lil bit too much, however it certainly made my heart race.

- Maria "To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."

A really good historical western romance

If you could sum up The Touch of Fire in three words, what would they be?

It's not the lonesome Dove saga, however, it is a good 19th century American romance. I'm so tired of the Regency era, I could just explode.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yessir. I didn't have to hear about Bathe or Whitehall and there were no Lords or Ladies.


Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yep. Pretty good.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Oh bother, "The doctor and the outlaw." I have no idea. Now if this was a regency novel it would be, "I have no idear".


Any additional comments?

Please, let's not all be juvenile and correct my errors. Seriously, this is one I like.
