Jessica Taggart had come West seeking adventure, and no hard-drinking, easy-living rogue like Jake Weston was going to stop her from finding it -- even if it meant being his partner in the Tin Angel, the most notorious brothel on the Barbary Coast. Even if she had to resist his sensual seduction, when all she really wanted was to melt in his arms.
Jake had not intention of sharing the Tin Angel with a know-it-all female from Boston. But Jessica's spirited independence ... and lush, responsive beauty ... made him swear off other women forever. And when Jessie proceeded to get shipwrecked, kidnapped, and almost killed, Jake swore to so whatever was necessary to keep her safe -- whether she wanted his help or not.
