Summary
Rhine Fontaine is building the successful life he's always dreamed of--one that depends upon him passing for White. But for the first time in years, he wishes he could step out from behind the facade. The reason: Eddy Carmichael, the young woman he rescued in the desert. Outspoken, defiant, and beautiful, Eddy tempts Rhine in ways that could cost him everything ... and the price seems worth paying. Eddy owes her life to Rhine, but she won't risk her heart for him. As soon as she's saved enough money from her cooking, she'll leave this Nevada town and move to California. No matter how handsome he is, no matter how fiery the heat between them, Rhine will never be hers. Giving in for just one night might quench this longing. Or it might ignite an affair as reckless and irresistible as it is forbidden ..

Summary
The son of a slave and a plantation owner, Union Army veteran Rhine Fontaine moves to Virginia City, Nevada, where his light skin and green eyes enable him to pass for white.Convinced that passing is his best bet for helping the local black community, Rhine questions his choice after meeting cook and aspiring restaurant owner Eddy Carmichael. Eddy insists that she's bound for California as soon as she can save enough money; Rhine wants her stay, but convincing her would mean sacrificing the life he's built for himself. Fans of Beverly Jenkins' African-American historical romances will recognize Rhine from his supporting role in Through the Storm. -- Description by Gillian Speace
