Everyone in the village of Culpepper knew the best way to solve a problem was to ask Treasure Barrett. So when the late squire's son demanded that the impoverished villagers pay back their outstanding loans, it fell to Treasure to deal with him. But the arrogant, handsome Sterling Renville was not a man to be reasoned with or ignored. And while Sterling infuriated Treasure like no man ever had, he also ignited a deep yearning within her.
Sterling Renville had come to the backwoods village to claim his inheritance, and nothing would stand in his way—not even the strikingly beautiful Miss Barrett. If she wanted a battle, he'd be happy to oblige. But while Treasure fought with logic, Sterling fought with seduction. And it wasn't long before Treasure surrendered to a rapturous ecstasy that would make her his forever.
