Kellen O'Roarke is out for revenge. Wealthy Jonathan Clark swindled Kellen's family, and when Kellen's heartbroken father died in poverty, Kellen vowed to bring Clark down. Now, with his plans to open a hot springs resort, he is within reach of his goal. Only one thing stands in his way: local landowner, Guin Talbot.
Guin Talbot is at a crossroads in her life. Grief-stricken and alone since her parents' recent deaths, she is struggling to keep the family hop farm in production, but is on the verge of losing the land. Kellen needs access across her property to complete his project, but doing so will destroy her farm.
Ultimately, each must choose between all they've held dear and the one they have come to love.

A special thank you to Roger Olson of Hopunion for permission to use his photograph of a hop vine on the cover.
