You can bury the past, but can you ever forget it? Hettie Redfern has no time for men, for anything but the most vital of needs. She has learnt from past experience. Her career is more rewarding, horses are more trustworthy, and dogs are easier to love.
So when Alexander Melton returns to Draymere Hall, where Hettie manages the stables, she quickly concludes that despite his good looks, his arrogance leaves a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop Hettie from desiring him, and the attraction is a powerful one.
Proud, judgemental, damaged…for Alexander women are a convenient pleasure to be used and forgotten. So why has he let Hettie Redfern get under his skin? A foolish obsession, given her reputation.
A clash of characters, a physical attraction too strong to resist. History unravelling in a perfect storm of frustrated passion.
