Start with Nate. With no intention of following the rest of the Devils down the aisle, Gideon Blackwood heads for the hills to reassess a life spent leading and caring for others. And runs smack into the business end of a shotgun. At the trigger: an irritated woman with a broken axle and a load of responsibility. Chloe Ruskin's is responsible for the safety of two orphans and her Granny, and the last thing she wants is Gideon's "help." This time, though, she has no choice. As they work into the night, grudging admiration grows into attraction--and desire. Gideon finds he can't dig his boot heels in hard enough to avoid falling for the opinionated little female.
