Passion and honor collide in the wild and rugged American West, where one woman’s love of adventure is matched by her desire for one man . . .
Victoria Harrison had no desire to marry to secure her position as heir to her family’s lumber business. And she doesn’t want to seek a man’s help now. But with her prized Great Mountain Lumber Mill threatened by one of her father’s old enemies, she needs an ally. She’s found one in Wall Adair, the handsome new leader of the notorious gang of rivermen known as the Devil May Cares.
It takes a lot of guts to run the biggest mill this side of the Rocky Mountains, and Wall admires Victoria’s determination to do it on her own terms. With each day they spend together, he uncovers a vulnerability hidden deep behind her strong façade. Wall has a duty to uphold—one that’ll soon call him away from the freedom he loves and back to his family’s ranch. Until then, he’ll protect the boss lady with every ounce of his strength . . . knowing the devil himself can’t keep him from losing his heart . . .
