Selena Taylor is an American citizen determined to find her grandparents after she loses her family to the violence of the drug cartel in Mexico. Crossing the border into Texas turns out to be the easy part.
Virtually penniless and enticingly innocent, she soon finds herself at the mercy of Travis Blake. Travis is a hard-working, self-made rancher that has never known love or softness of any kind. His only use for women is sexual, and Selena is caught on his ranch with no way out.
While Selena plots her escape from his control, Travis ruthlessly and methodically tightens his possession and makes it impossible for her to leave.
The struggle that follows is a clash of wills that pits purity against passion, virtue against vice and love against lust.
Travis had to touch her. He physically was unable to stop himself from reaching out and picking up her hand. "Oh yeah, I like it." He pulled her into the bathroom and swiveled her in front of him, her back lightly resting against his front. He gently wrapped his arms around her...
I absolutely LOVED seeing how overwhelmed Travis was with his need for Selena. Alpha males and their women who bring them to their knees. Don't look down on sweet, adorable, innocent Selena because she has Travis wrapped around her tiny finger! We get to Travis (almost) begging for her touch and kisses. The interactions between Travis and Selena were either downright adorable, hilarious or steamy hot! I loved seeing Travis grumpy and jealous, always sets me off. I loved the sex and how gentle he was with Selena despite his overwhelming need for her, absolutely amazing.
"Baby, I beg you, don't let go until I say so. Please. You won't be hurting me. I promise. You'll be helping me. Okay?"
"Baby, you are so fine. I don't know what the hell I did to deserve you, but I'm not going to argue."
