Two books in one. Too Hot to Handle: Young Tory Wells tries for a job on an Arizona ranch, wanting a fresh start--but doesn't count on falling for her bad-boy boss. Sweet Wind...: Lara Chandler returns to her home to complete her dissertation on a century of life at a Montana cattle ranch, but doesn't bargain on working so closely with the guy who dumped her years earlier.
The first story was not enjoyable, to me - the hero's treatment of the heroine was far too close to emotional/verbal abuse for a majority of the piece. The ending was nice, but the things he said to her over the course of most of the story, and the negative impact his words had on her, were pretty hard to take.
The second story was much better - much sweeter and more believable. There was history with the characters, as well as chemistry, passion, and tenderness; all of which made for a more enjoyable read.
