Before he realizes it, he becomes part of Joe's scheme to marry off the rich and lovely Chloe, who happens to be the owner of those horses. Max is a man with many secrets.

"PRAIRIE FIRE by Terri Branson is a compelling paranormal historical romance. In 1893, Chloe Talley-Marsh travels to the newly formed Lincoln County. She is returning home to stay with her brother after the premature death of her husband, leaving her a bereft young widow. Part Cherokee and part white, Chloe and her brother, Joe, walk a dangerous path as it was illegal at the time for American Indians to own land. Upon her arrival in Lincoln, Chloe is met not by her brother, but a neighboring rancher, Max McKee. It is lust at first sight for these two, but both are harboring secrets that could either make or break their relationship. Thrown into the mix is a series of inexplicable fires devastating the county. Can Max win over the headstrong Chloe and will Chloe be able to accept Max completely, secrets and all? Miss Branson does an exceptional job of capturing the time period as well as realistically portraying the characters. The added paranormal aspect of an old American Indian ghost made the story even more interesting. Branson has done her research and that is to be admired. I found myself relating to Chloe’s desires to escape the constraints of her gender and her need to travel to places unknown. I was rooting for Max, though, the minute that he brought Chloe back to his ranch — as if he needed any help! Prairie Fire is a very well-written story, giving just the right dose of steamy romance. Miss Branson has woven together the perfect read for a lazy weekend at home." ~ reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite [FIVE STARS]
"PRAIRIE FIRE is another of author Terri Branson's wonderful, eminently readable romances with a paranormal twist. In PRAIRIE FIRE, recently widowed Chloe is tired of being controlled by her brother Joe. Out of love and concern for his sister, Joe arranged Chloe's marriage to rich a banker twenty-two years her senior. After Phillip dies, Chloe heads for San Francisco, focused on a new life only she will control. But when she stops by Joe's ranch in western Oklahoma, Indian Territory, she loses her heart and subsequently all control of her life. Surrounded by bigotry, deliberately set prairie fires, and a mysterious ghost, Chloe faces down her enemies, male and female, and struggles to come to terms with this new world. This novel contains plenty of lust and sweet romance, and some hot sex, but should be suitable for ages 13+." ~ reviewed by Pat Kelley [FIVE STARS]
