Amanda Caulden led a sheltered life on her father's California ranch -- until the day Hank Montgomery stormed into town. A hot-blooded union organizer with a taste for ladies and fine champagne, he sensed the fire that smoldered beneath her prim, virtuous beauty...and he vowed to make her his.
Hank's assault on her orderly life made Amanda furious -- and all the more enticing. Slowly, he drew her into a world of sensuous pleasure: sumptuous meals and moonlit dances, carefree laughter and stolen kisses...gently stirring the sleeping embers of passion. But even as a fierce love rose between them, violent rebellion threatened to destroy the Caulden ranch -- and their lives!

I run hot and cold with this one. On the one hand, the story is rather bland and uninspired. Boy meets girl, girl dislikes boy, boy convinces girl to get over herself, and they live happily ever after. There's more to it, yes, but it's really quite forgettable. On the other hand, the characters in this book are more likable than those found in much of Deveraux's other work. So while this book may be particularly exciting, it's at least not as aggravating as some.

Worth the read. The characters had something to them. Loved Dr.Montgomery! Interesting story showing the begining of the unions, shows why they were really needed in the begining.

This was pretty much the same story as "The Princess." Only Aria had a lot more sass and personality than Amanda. Jude Deveraux's "The Temptress" and "The Heiress" were along the same story line as well. Though all the Montgomery stories are definitely catchy.
