Book One of the Golden Spurs series.
From the cradle, Lizzy Kemble had the powerful sense that she didn't belong in her family's notorious Texas empire. Her desire for land-grabbing Cole Knight, embittered son of the neighboring rancher, proved her right. Her daddy had done everything possible to turn her into a proper Kemble—all the way to leaving his vast Golden Spurs Ranch in her hands after he fell victim to a stroke.
But when her father's death turns out to be murder, Lizzy knows someone is willing to kill to claim the Kemble wealth…and she's next on the hit list. With the Golden Spurs at risk, she';s fighting back…but who is the enemy? The enigmatic Cole? Her cutthroat family? Caught in a high-stakes game of win, lose or die, Lizzy is forced to gamble her ranch, her heart, her very life for the truth behind the Golden Spurs.
