The New York Times bestselling author of Open Season weaves a sizzling novel of love and hate between the girl from the wrong side of the tracks and the town’s wealthy and powerful favorite son.

A poor, outcast child in Prescott, Louisiana, Faith Devlin always adored the town’s golden boy—Gray Rouillard—from afar. But after he called her white trash that sultry Southern night when his rich, respected father disappeared, along with her pretty mother, Faith wants to hate Gray Rouillard. Yet she can’t quench her passion, any more than she can hide the truth about the past she has waited so long to unravel.

Meanwhile, reckless, rich, and charming Gray never wants to hear the name of Devlin again. But when he gazes at Faith Devlin, all he sees is a swirl of tangled sheets and her silken flesh beneath him. To care for her is impossible, unthinkable...because Gray Rouillard planned to use all his power to ruin her.
