Dillon McKenzie was rugged, rowdy, and none too pleased that Abel Pratt's will divided his Dakota ranch equally between Dillion and a lady preacher form Sioux Falls! He didn't want any goody-two-shoes of a minister telling him what to do..even one whose skin was silk and whose eyes could light up the dark places in a man's heart. Rachael Caitland was determined to make the best of things, even when Dillon messeed up the house and mocked her cooking, but the rough-and-tumble cowboy made her blush, and yearn, and wish for once in her life that she was beautiful. Stunned to discover how deeply Rachael stirred him, Dillon hid his desire with teasing, but once he's tasted her fire he tried to tempt her to break the rules, to risk caring for a man who was all wrong for her. She knew he feared she'd try to change him, but Dillon had taught her much more than passion. Could she show him she loved him just as he was, that she wanted to be his wife, not save his soul?
