Marianne has always wanted to be a writer, so when her aunt Lillian asked if she’d help her boss, oil baron Ward, write his memoirs, she hurried to Texas. Apparently Ward is about to pass away, and Marianne wants to do her best to help him write his life’s story. But the Ward who ultimately appears before her is anything but ill—in fact, he looks to be a very healthy, not to mention handsome, man. It turns out it was all a ploy by her aunt to get the two of them together. Unfortunately, Marianne realizes it too late—she’s already caught in Ward’s dangerously seductive trap!
