From the moment Gillian Moore set foot in Temple Territory, she knew it was the perfect place to open her boutique hotel. The fact that it's also the ancestral home of currently out-of-work Texas cooking sensation Hunt Temple seems like fate. With the cowboy chef in her kitchen, success is practically guaranteed. Too bad their visions of his family land couldn't be further apart. Hunt can't let Gillian destroy his family legacy, not before he and his brothers have a chance to rebuild it. Hunt's prepared to challenge Gillian at every step and make sure she embraces the local Texas flavor. But despite their differences, they make an amazing team. And not just in business. Yet when Hunt's own opportunity knocks, even Texas may not be big enough for both of their careers.

To put it frankly, Diamond Lil was a beautiful short course to Hell.' Star of the Bowery saloon owned by powerful Gus Jordan, her latest lover, she likes nothing better than 'the white flame of her diamonds or the varied red flames of men's passions.' And seething downtown New York in the Naughty Nineties gives her plenty of both. It's all sport to her- jailed lovers, liquor, gambling- until handsome, mysterious Captain Cummings of the Salvation Army walks into her life. Preacher or no preacher, she wants that man more than any other.

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
In Memoriam A. H. H. OBIIT MDCCCXXXIII: Part 075
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

I leave thy praises unexpress'd
In verse that brings myself relief,
And by the measure of my grief
I leave thy greatness to be guess'd;

What practice howsoe'er expert
In fitting aptest words to things,
Or voice the richest-toned that sings,
