Blue Mitchum had grown up the bad boy of Peculiar, Mississippi-every mother's nightmare and every daughter's fantasy! He'd left his fingerprints on plenty of the town's girls, but he'd never touched Cassie Kennard... except in the pages of her diary, where she'd confessed how much she wanted the dark-haired rebel with Indian blood and stark blue eyes to kiss her breathless! Now she was back in town, but as Cassandra D'Clair, world-famous model and divorced mother of twins-and living under the same roof with the man she'd never forgotten, or stopped yearning for. Blue's wicked grin said he knew Cassie burned and trembled, but she vowed not to be one of his conquests, that stolen kiss s were all he'd ever get. Cassie refused to let a mad close-but Blue found the untamed wildcat beneath the lady's skin and lit her fires with his lips. Could he teach her that his love could soothe her pain... and her love heal his?
