Ginny was struggling to hold on to her family's tobacco farm, until her next door neighbor called in his deed on the land. Now her long hot days in the sun were over, but her long cool nights began, as she made the social rounds to keep an eye on that handsome rake who held her future in his hands. She hated being at his mercy, but one bold, heated look from him made her knees week with desire. No one in Virginia cared that Jonathan was the illegitimate son of a duke. His combination of good looks and wealth stood him in good stead with the county's female residents all except one. That independent beauty next door was worried that he would take advantage of her vulnerable position. And for good reason, for just the ight of her rosy skin and honeyed golden tresses left him determined to take her in his arms and stroke her into wild abandon.
