"Harrigan Mahoney's assignment was clear: travel to Wyoming, find runaway Ella Carson, and escort her to Philadelphia - by force if necessary. A simple task, made devilishly complicated by Ella's wit, beauty, and spirited determination to outfox him at every turn.Ella is no stranger to bad luck, but it seems wholly unfair that the man hired to drag her back to her greedy relatives should be the most intriguing male she ever set eyes on. The tall, dashing Irishman takes no pains to hide his attraction to Ella, but it is her overpowering desire for him that presents the greatest danger...Now, journeying together through an unyielding land, their battle of wills becomes an adventure in seduction. One kiss is all it takes to unleash a hunger both fierce and foolhardy, for Ella's very life depends upon her escape from the man who could capture her heart forever..."--Back cover.
