Young, beautiful, and ambitious, Dr. Darcy McCall leaves the U.S. to accept the only position she can find as a new physician -- a post on a remote Australian cattle ranch. What she doesn't bar gain for is the virile, ruggedly handsome station boss, fire Burleson, who wants no part of a female doctor in his employ.
Unwilling to accept her tenacious pride, Jim is not immune to her innocent sensuality, or to the aching need she arouses in hire. He longs to strip away her cloak of stubborn independence and show her the joys of being a woman ... and his shameless seduction brings her perilously close to total surrender. But as tensions mount, it is the struggle for survival in the savage land that draws them together, clashing in a tumultuous confrontation with a love too volatile to trust and too powerful to deny.
