She had to keep him away from her
Katherine Marie Farlough was young, beautiful and the daughter of a very rich and distinguished man. But inside that gilded cage, Kate was a mere pawn in her father's life.
The ruthless Kentuckian cared more for his business conquests than his daughter's happiness, fully expecting Kate's womanly cooperation in his latest plot to undo his rival, Lucas Dalton.
But Kate refused. She could never willingly be the trap set to ruin the one man who had offered her sanctuary from a loveless home. Even if protecting Luke meant sending away the most attractive man she had ever met.
