Kade Owen dragged his hand over his stubbled face as he settled into the plastic airport seat while waiting to board the plane he'd be taking to Tucson. He was ready to get out of dreary San Francisco, back to Arizona, and home to his...


Praise for Kade

“Steamy love scenes, a heart-stopping mystery and a theme of second changes make this novel impossible to put down. The best part about this love story is the natural progression of the relationship as opposed to two people rushing into bed. The building attraction is slow enough to keep anticipations high and juicy enough to leave readers panting for more.” —RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars!)

“[A] perfect mix of action, adventure and sizzling hot romance. Ms. McCray has created a fast-paced, intriguing tale with enough heat to rival the Arizona desert setting. Her strong, engaging characters drive the story while the danger and excitement add the fuel.” —Fallen Angel Reviews on Kade

“The cowboys are to die for, the seroine is smart and independent, and the underlying plot is inspired by current headlines. The sex is as hot as the Arizona setting, with some laugh-out-loud funny twists. McCray balances suspense and steamy sex like no one else.” —Romantic Times on Luke

“riveting” —Romance Junkies on Luke

“Definitely a must read.” —Night Owl Romance (Reviewer Top Pick!) on Luke

“A strong plot, believable characters, hot sex scenes and just enough sexual tension to keep the pages turning.” —Romantic Times on Zach

“A wonderful, sexy romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat with suspense even while it nurtures the romantic inside you.” —Wild On Books on Zach

About the author

Cheyenne McCray

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cheyenne McCray writes the Night Tracker novels and the Armed and Dangerous series, among others. She grew up on a ranch in southeastern Arizona. She has been writing ever since she can remember, back to her kindergarten days when she penned her first poem. She always knew one day she would write novels—she wanted to create worlds that readers would get lost in, just as she had always gotten lost in her favorite books. "Growing up I read, read, and read," she says, "and grew up to write, write, write." She has three sons and two dogs. A true Arizona native, she loves the desert and all of the sunshine and beautiful sunsets that go along with it.
