The Awakening

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 — and a natural-born ladies’ man — Hank sensed the fire that smoldered beneath Amanda’s prim beauty…and he vowed to make her his own.

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!
