Amelia's father is determined that she marry into the powerful Culhane family. Mild mannered Alan is to be the man she marries. But his brother, dangerous King Culhane, is the man she has to have. Great book
This was a good story. I read Nora first. Nora married King's brother Cal and that was a good story also. I think this breed of man and woman is vanishing. King is antagonistic to Amelia and rude and mean yet she loves him. She is keeping a secret regarding her family life and her seemingly submissive attitude rubs King the wrong way. He thinks she's after his money whether its via his brother or him. Amelia puts up with his rudeness because she loves him. King seduces Amelia then throws her away. You'll have to read it to find out what happened. I love the way Ms. Palmer takes these hard, tough, arrogant men and matches them with strong, feisty, self-assured women they can't walk on and turns it into an unbreakable love. check it out.
