Daniel Aragon knows trouble and torment when he sees it, and the flirtatious beauty standing on the San Francisco pier is both. The niece of a land commissioner, Harmony Russell is strictly off-limits. The Aragon family land grant review must go off without a hitch.
But Harmony isn't about to let business come between her and the handsome stranger who dared to steel her heart with one dark glance. Casting aside propriety, she sets out to seduce the hot-blooded Californio and gets snagged in her own trap.
Surrounded by scandal and forced to marry, the Aragon family land hangs in the balance as the pair face a difficult choice: drop their prideful ways and join forces or surrender to a loveless, and landless, future.
