Sophie Malloy had her heart ripped in half and tossed back in her pretty face. Luckily, this classically trained pianist has a penchant for travel. From Boston, she sets out for Colorado to do a favor for her only sister-in-law. Not expecting excitement in tiny Spring City, she never imagined she’d be knocked into the street five minutes after disembarking the train. And certainly not by a dusty cowboy with soft brown eyes and a devastatingly sexy grin.
Riley Dalcourt is stunned. At first meeting, he knows Sophie is the woman of his dreams, with her dark hair, intelligent eyes, and purple unmentionables! Unfortunately, he’s already engaged. Honor bound, he’s determined to go through with his commitment to his fiancée. Yet he simply can’t seem to stay away from the sweet-tempered beauty who has entered his life so unexpectedly, or forget her when she leaves just as quickly.
With the lively 1880s San Francisco and the dangerous Barbary Coast as the backdrop, Sophie and Riley reunite while following their individual dreams. Amid cable cars and concert halls, they must decide if their undeniable attraction is true love or merely An Irresistible Temptation.
