Eva Hayes' world has
been torn upside down after the Civil War. She's lost her family, her husband
and her heart, especially when she finds out that her husband, William has
married another. Eva decides to never love again and sets out for the West,
leaving behind her world of hard labor and unseen rights. Once in Nevada,
Eva builds a new life for herself, now the hostess and half owner of The
Stardust Hotel. Life was peaceful that was until the night Eva finds Sylas Fortune in her bed.
Ex-Marshal, Sylas Fortune is a man who has seen death and betrayal and he's out for vengeance for the man who murdered his wife and left Sylas to take the blame and to rot in a jail cell. Sylas escapes jail and turns to his friend, Mirah Tillman, owner of the Stardust. Sylas never expected to encounter his own temptress, Eva. The woman ignites a fire within Sylas that he has long since denied. Eva's fiery temper and red hot passion have Sylas wondering if he could open his heart to love a woman again. That is, if he didn't have a score to settle and a murderer to catch. But when the very evil that Sylas is haunting for strikes out for the woman he hungers for like no other; will Sylas be able to turn his cheek for the revenge he's wanted after all this time?
