Rawlins was a magical name in the San Francisco of 1906, especially to the beautiful Felicity Adams. Swept off her feet by dashing Bryce Rawlins, she was awestruck by the wealth and power of the fabled family. But when she met Bryce's brother, she truly learned the power of passion.
Hunt Rawlins had the devil in him. Unlike brash, upstanding Bryce, he thrived on the vitality of the Barbary Coast â€" the money, the women, the danger. And Felicity was drawn to him even though she realized his unscrupulous heart would never give her the lasting love she could have from his brother.
In a struggle no less destructive than the might earthquake that threatened her beloved city, Felicity would have to fight for her hopes, her dreams, and her desires in the grand glorious land of California.
