Eight years ago, Miranda Dexter broke her engagement to dark and sexy Ramon Constantino and headed out to conquer the world. Now, she goes by Pearl as a location scout for a small film production company, which is proving to be a lonely job. On assignment, Pearl returns to her hometown of Hawksville, Texas to negotiate permission to film on her ex-fiancé’s ranch. But she doesn’t count on the spark of attraction for her old flame.
One look at the woman who jilted him tells Ramon that Miranda—Pearl?—is still in his blood. Before he’ll sign away his permission, he demands one night of passion. His intention is to tease and tantalize Pearl with erotic sensation, yet remain aloof. And if that doesn’t work…well, he banished her from his heart once, he can do it again. But does he really want to?
