Autumn Lover by Elizabeth Lowell

Returning to her Wyoming ranch at the Civil War's end, Elyssa Sutton finds it picked bare by scavengers and coveted by determined men. Yet the proud young woman vows never again to abandon her Ruby Mountain home, though it means enlisting the aid of a dark and dangerous stranger who lives for revenge alone.
Hunter Maxwell has suffered from the savagery of outlaws and the faithlessness of a woman. And he will trust no female - nor will he rest until the raiders who destroyed his family pay for their crimes.
A woman in, need, a man in pain, in fury and fire they must now stand as one to fight for something cherished, something lost ... and for a passion neither dreamed could live.
In the brisk chill of Autumn, ravaged hearts will be reborn.

This book just toes the line of being okay. The main male character, Hunter Maxwell, is a conflicted bully who distrusts all women because his first wife betrayed him, thus painting the entire sex with the "untrustworthy flirt" brush, ad nauseum. Frankly, it gets tiresome listening to how Belinda, his late wife, is the epitome of the worst type of female there could ever be and how Hunter believes all women are of the same ilk. Also tedious is how much he belittles the main female character, Alissa, owner of the Ladder-S Ranch, while being attracted to her at the same time.
