Magnus Thorvald, as strong and stubborn as the oak he carves, steers clear of loose women since his ex-wife’s betrayal.
Kat Donaldson, thirty-something free spirit, suburban Philadelphia art gallery owner, enthusiastic sex-club devotee, meets the first man who won’t say yes.
When Kat hears about an obscure artist’s uncommon talent, she tracks him down to a rural corner of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he lives in a chilly stone barn like a monk. Overwhelmed by the power of his carvings, she offers to represent him. Her blatantly sexy attire warns Magnus away from the tall, willowy redhead even as she ignites unwanted feelings of lust. Despising his body’s instant reaction, he turns her down flat.
This only makes Kat more determined—she has a reputation for launching new talent. Plus, the sight of this magnificent Viking, six-five with blond hair and glacier-blue eyes, kicks her libido into instant lust.
When Magnus’ irrepressible younger brother agrees to pose nude for Kat’s art class, all hell breaks loose as he tries to make Magnus jealous enough to go after what he wants.
