Summary
"As manager of one of the finest hotels in Arizona Territory, Portia Carmichael has respect and stability, qualities sorely missing from her harsh childhood. She refuses to jeopardize that by hitching herself to the wrong man. Suitors are plentiful, but none of them has ever looked quite as tempting as the family friend who just rode into town--and none has looked at her with such intensity and heat"--Back cover

Summary
Portia Carmichael's mother was a prostitute who abandoned Portia and her sister when they were children. Fortunately, her aunt and uncle (Forbidden's Eddy Carmichael and Rhine Fontaine) stepped in; thanks to them, Portia is now an Oberlin graduate who manages the finest hotel in the Arizona Territory. Due to her experiences, Portia has no desire to marry. But the return of an old family friend, Kent Randolph, soon has her rethinking her stance on romance -- despite his youthful reputation as a lady's man. As Kent patiently woos Portia, he must prove to her that he's matured into the kind of man she could marry. -- Description by Gillian Speace
