Wealthy mine owner Ross Morgan is ready with a scathing reception for the lady lawyer from Boston, who had written him a critical letter challenging the safety of the mine where her brother died. But the "spinster" he anticipated is nothing less than a knock-out, whose sensual brown eyes immediately turn his wrath to thoughts of romance.
Nell Ryan will have none of it. She trusts no man, least of all a handsome, golden-haired devil like Ross, who obviously believes he can charm his way into any woman's heart. But Ross is determined to ignite the sexual fires that glow beneath her cool facade. And tricking her into representing him leads to days of building legal defenses... and nights of sweet ecstasy that leave both of them defenseless.
