Asher Torrance finds peace in cutting down trees for lumber in the woods of Georgia. He figures it’s about all he has earned along the dark path of destruction he left behind. When his new boss’ daughter starts making eyes at him, he has to keep his distance—or risk destroying her too.
Aspen Billings may not get the risks her father takes—but she doesn’t mind taking a risk on the beautiful land he settled them on. On that land is a crew of men—one who makes her think of babies and weddings and forever, but he never looks at her twice.
Until one night he stops pretending he doesn’t see her—and tells her she is the only woman he wants even if he doesn’t think he should have her.
