There are a couple of things you need to know about me.
First, my dad is a judge. That means he thinks he can control everyone. In my mother and my perfect sister’s case, that works. Newsflash: it doesn’t work on me. I went against my father’s wishes and got a union job instead of attending college.
Second, even though I have yellow or purple or blue hair and skimpy clothes, I hate sex. Every guy I’ve ever done it with has made it suck. I’m so over hooking up.
Stop it. Don’t feel sorry for me. I’m living my life as the artist I’ve always wanted to be. So you see I’ve got plenty of time for this puppy I rescued from traffic on the freeway. But I don’t have a single second to spare for the hot lawyer who helped me.
My mom cleaned the bathrooms of rich doctors and lawyers in Beverly Hills. Now she’s retired without so much as a pension. I put on a suit, go to my top floor office, and work twelve hours every day just to support her.
After watching my mother being ordered around all day, I don’t like rich girls. I especially don’t like rich girls who go up against me at work. So why is this poor little rich girl and her new dog getting under my skin?
Marjorie Steel is still healing from the events of the past year, and she’s happy to put her plans to study culinary arts on hold to help her best friend deal with a difficult pregnancy and two recently adopted troubled boys. The fact that Bryce Simpson spends a lot of time at the Steel Ranch is a benefit, and she’s ready to see if her attraction to him might be something more.
Bryce wants to do a hard day’s work on the ranch. Once his muscles give out and he collapses from exhaustion, maybe he’ll stop torturing himself over his late father’s horrific double life. The Steels have a different idea. They ask Bryce to take an executive position complete with a profit share. As he has a young son and widowed mother to support, it’s an offer he can’t refuse. The only catch is Marjorie. She’s beautiful, smart, feisty, and her kisses set him on fire. But he’s an empty shell with nothing to offer her, and she deserves the world.
As the sins of his father continue to haunt him, Bryce learns the horrors of the past may not yet be buried.
