Hunter Gray is nothing like the other men who've arrived to vie for Allura's hand in marriage and everything that goes along with it. However, he is the first to refuse to concede defeat and pursue her despite her attempts to disguise her true appearance. It's her temperament that is of more concern to him than her looks. Hunter has worked all his life with the hope of someday owning his own land. Now that it looks like there's a very real possibility that everything he's ever wanted is within reach nothing is going to deter him - including Miss Allura's disagreeable disposition.

Read an Excerpt
Mesmerized, Allura watched the brazen Englishman stride toward her. Close up, his hair seemed blacker than midnight. The green of his eyes was shuttered and dark. His slightly crooked nose, the high cheek bones, and the frankly sensuous mouth were bathed in sunlight while his chin and the hollows of his cheek were in stark relief, making his face at once handsome and yet unyielding and harsh. The corded muscles of his arms stood out, sunlight caressing the silver band that encircled one arm.
He smiled and his eyes were alight with a secret. Then he sank down on one knee. For a few striking moments he gazed at her, his eyes knifing through her as if he could see all her dreams and hopes. He lightly touched the tips of her fingers and slowly lifted her hand, never letting his gaze move from her. After pausing a moment, he brushed feather soft kisses across her knuckles.
She inhaled a swift, deep gasp of air and stepped backward. It was, she thought breathlessly, unfair for any man to look as Hunter Gray did, to have such thick, curly black hair, such long, luxurious eyelashes, such beautiful green eyes and a mouth--Allura swallowed with difficulty--a mouth that made the most erotic thoughts flash through her head.

The story is well written and the characters interesting and well-flushed. For some reason; however, I had difficulty getting into the story. I kept putting it down and going back to it again and again. I'm glad I finished this book because I did enjoy the journey and have decided to read another from this author.
