Passionate, Headstrong Lady Rowena Dangerfield and dark, dangerous outlaw Lucas Cord…Two destinies intertwined under the blazing New Mexico sun! Lady Rowena Dangerfield travels from the exotic palaces of India to the splendor of the Royal Court of London to the savage New Mexico frontier to lay claim to her inheritance and live freely as only she would dare. In the violent, untamed American Southwest, she finally meets a man as strong as she is: Lucas Cord, a dark, dangerously handsome, half-Apache outlaw. Fighting scandal, treachery, and murder, Luke is determined to have Rowena for his own, and as their all-consuming passion mounts, no one is going to stop him…
This historical romance was huge! Not only in story but in pages. 739 pages to be exact! Even with that many pages, I was still sad to see this story end. This was my first time reading a book by this author and I am so happy I had a chance to read it. Rowena proves to be a little hot-headed, speaks her mind and independent. I can see why the author named this book The Wildest Heart because Rowen is one wild woman with a big heart. I enjoyed reading about the struggle that each character had to work through either together or individually. This book features strong characters that will keep you captivated all the way to the last page! A very true romantic read!
Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
I love this book. I didn’t find it erotic, though, romantic yes, but erotic no. Rosemary Rogers generally is steamier but I feel that she smoothed over things with Luke and Rowena. Was pretty PG-13 if you ask me. Sexual tension yes, erotic, no.

I can see where people might have thought that the erotic part in my review meant sexual. That was not the context that was meant. I meant that the erotic part was the sort of dance that they played between the characters. I removed that statement from my post now so there is no more confusion.
I was on the Amazon Romance Forum recently and discussing older books that are great reads and Rosemary’s name was mentioned several times. I’ve added this book to my wish list. Thanks for the great review!!
