Roxie Norris was a minister's daughter, but the stubborn, spunky enchantress was no saint! When her car died on Tyler Sheridan's doorstep, the devastatingly handsome restaurateur was stunned: he'd expected a shy country girl with scrawny legs, not a redheaded spitfire with a body that begged to be caressed. Years before, her father had given him a new start, and now Tyler wanted to return the favor by hiring Roxie for the summer. She'd left her small town in search of independence, a life of her own - but when Tyler insisted she come home with him, saying no was impossible. Every time he touched her, she felt wild, reckless, and she just couldn't keep her mind off his body! Tyler cradled Roxie against him, inhaled her sweetness, but though he hungered to instruct her in the mysteries of pleasure, she was forbidden fruit. It couldn't be wrong if it was truly love, but time was the test: how would he ever know, unless he set her free?
