New York Times bestselling author, CHERYL HOLT, dazzles readers once again as she delivers another irresistible story of love, lust, betrayal, and redemption. Dustin Merriweather is the ultimate bad boy. He's rich, spoiled, and too handsome for his own good. He thrives on pleasure, but with his father's death, he's been forced to work, helping to manage the family's vast global empire. Nothing irks him more than having to leave his perfect life in sunny Los Angeles, especially when it's business that drags him up into the snowy, cold Colorado Rockies. Amy Dane focuses on what matters: work and family. Living in the isolated mountain community of Gold Creek, she's raising her two young sisters while struggling to cope with her crazy mother. She's the only reporter at the weekly, rural newspaper, and she barely earns enough to get by. But when Dustin decides to sell a large portion of her beloved town to a real estate developer, she's in the perfect position to fight him. She just doesn't understand how difficult the battle will turn out to be. Vain, arrogant Dustin would never let himself be bested by a female. They're on a collision course, and Dustin is quickly intrigued by Amy. But why would he be? She's a pert, sassy, irritating pest and nothing like the slender, extraordinary beauties that typically catch his eye. As attraction flares and lust sizzles, he can't help but be drawn into her world-even if it's against his will. Dustin is an adamant bachelor, while Amy isAmy. Dustin may have finally found precisely what he's always needed.
