Luke Trahern is searching for gold, Mahala is looking for land in Oregon. Introduced by a bear, the two must survive the journey across the northern Rockies, warding off injuries, bear attacks, Indians, and the weather. At the end of his journey, Luke finds his gold, but it is not yellow metal.
Justin Morgan would happily drown the pain of his injured leg-and the guilt he brought back from Afghanistan-in bourbon. Except, there won't be any booze if he doesn't rescue his family's century-old distillery from financial ruin. The problem? Allie McGrath-youngest daughter of the distillery's co-owners, and the one woman he can't have.
Allie has been in love with Justin since...well, she's always been in love with him. Now he's home, broken up over the death of her brother, and he needs help. She can fix the distillery-she's sure of it-but no one's taking her or her sweet new idea seriously. Convincing Justin is her only hope.
Allie is more tempting than Justin expected, threatening a promise he swore he'd never break. If he can't keep their attraction under control, there's a solid chance they'll send the whole enterprise crumbling to the ground...if he doesn't crash and burn first.
