When police officer Cressida Trellen stops traffic offender Jonas Hitcheson, she never expects him to ask her for a date. Jonas' psychic powers tell him he's found his dream woman in the beautiful, emerald-eyed cop. He uses his brash charm to talk himself into Cressy's bed. Entranced by Jonas' lovemaking, Cressy finds herself drawn into new and exciting sexual activities.
But in spite of the blazing hot sex, Cressy is cold to the idea of making the handsome Yankee a permanent part of her life. Cressy's ancestor, wronged by her lover, laid a curse on her descendants - if a woman of her family falls in love with a man, the man will die.
Cressy desperately needs money to repair her historic home. Psychic dreams reveal to Jonas that the ancestor's emeralds are hidden in the house. Can Cressy and Jonas find the emeralds and save Cressy's home before the ancient curse takes hold?
