With its bountiful orchards and green pastures, Lottie Graham's farm looks like heaven on earth to Sean O'Connor. Penniless and weary after the long journey from his native Ireland, he'll be on his way to the gold fields come spring--yet he must repay Lottie's kindness to him somehow. But all he has to offer the proud beauty are his strength and boundless determination. His heart is under lock and key...
Lottie has learned the hard way to hide her deepest emotions--and no man will ever mean more to her than the young son she has raised alone. The brawny Irishman is a temptation she must resist at all costs. But the aftermath of a deadly fire will bring them closer than she ever dreamed...to find a love more precious than gold.
