When Brand Lockwood barely survives a building collapse, memories of trying to rescue other survivors haunt him. He vows never again to be a victim of another man’s negligence and greed—and to actively pursue the builder he feels was responsible for the collapse.
Kara Richardson isn’t going to sit by and let her father be slandered as an incompetent contractor. She goes right to the man who has brought her father so much misery and ruined his life—Brand Lockwood—and applies for a job with his firm. She can handle a bulldozer as well as any man, and she’s got to financially support her father until she can manage to clear his name. But how can she get to the bottom of things when neither man will tell her what happened?
Kara’s father demands that she come home—but it’s too late for that. Brand has already laid claim to her with his dark eyes and heart-stopping touch. Now, Kara has to find out what only Brand can tell her about the horrific accident. How can she live with the truth? And how can she live without Brand?
