Handsome, eligible ranch owner Stuart York was not one
to mince words. Ivy Conley, his younger sister's best
friend, found out the hard way. During a night's stay at
his Jacobsville ranch, Ivy wound up in Stuart's arms. The
resulting fireworks singed them both . . . and knowing she
was too young, Stuart closed his heart to her.
Now, years later, Ivy is determined not to be treated like
a little girl anymore. Although still innocent, Ivy knows
she has to fight her own battles, but for some reason
Stuart is always fighting them for her, keeping her from
harm. And safe in Stuart's arms Ivy feels like a
woman . . . a woman who belongs to him.
