Bronwyn Laker had always followed other people's rules - her rich, powerful father's...her handsome, selfish husband's. But since the death of her young daughter she had lived alone in a cottage by the sea, determined to rule her own life, to develop her artistic talent to finally be her own woman.
Then Austin Steele intruded upon her solitary world, sweeping her into a storm of passion that put her newly found independence to the test. Austin was a man who knew what he wanted and was not afraid to take it. Fighting against his tender, sensual invasion, Bronwyn resisted, yet could not escape. For Austin was a man who wanted nothing - unless he could have it all.
