March 2013 – Montlake Romance
Eden Delgado holds Charles Kipling personally responsible for her father’s death in a mining accident twenty years ago. There’s no way she’ll allow his smooth-talking, good-looking grandson, Jake, to resume operations.
Jake Kipling has his own agenda and wants to restore the family mining tradition in Arizona. As a Kipling, he wants to prove he can provide jobs and services as his ancestors once had. As a man, he wants to connect with his past and discover the life of a father he never knew. His father was also one of the men killed.
Eden, this passionate, loyal woman–a woman, who weaves her way into his heart and his soul–fascinates Jake. But when it comes to love, can Jake walk away from his obligations and his heritage? Can Eden, who is attracted to his strength and protectiveness, betray the cherished memories of her father by falling for him?
