Two free spirits find that love is a force more powerful than their wills. William Taggart paces like a tiger in a jail cell--after a fit of his temper placed him there. So when a lovely lady named Melisande Moorseby appears, purposing a temporary marriage, he accepts. The fiery-spirited lady will soon find that this tiger cannot be tamed. But through the power of the bond that forms between them, they may both find greater happiness than they'd ever dreamed possible.
