The instant Kathy Hammond saw Landis Jurrell, she didn't know what to fear more: the fierce lumberjack or the torrid emotions he ignited in her. The independent beauty had travelled to the Alaskan wilderness to search for her father. Instead she was consumed by an inferno of rapture that she savored until the first lights of dawn streaked past the sky. After their ecstatic night of sensual pleasure, Landis vowed he'd never let Kathy travel alone. He would never love her, but he couldn't let her go. And as the cold winds howled about them, Landis was possessed by the insatiable need for the hot-tempered minx who brought him fiery glowing desire and flaming GOLDEN TORMENT.
