Biologist Libby Stapleton was ready for anything when she
met her unwilling partner on an government environmental
study--anything, that is, except forest manager Dan Wagner,
whose animal grace and disturbing honesty, filled her with
swift, passionate longing.
Suddenly the dreaded three-week trek into wild mountainous
terrain became a dangerous adventure into an uncharted world
of desire. But Dan was a man who played the game of life by
his own rugged rules. If Libby wanted to win his heart she
had to live by the laws of nature--and survive.
