Your tour of desire begins with this story set in Pennsylvania. Mara had locked her feelings away. Aloof, cold as ice- that was Mara Prentiss. And she felt she had every reason to be that way. Her father’s infidelity had killed her mother. That’s what love leads to Mara thought. Mara hated her father, Adam, but she looked after him out of duty. When he became friends with the striking, persuasive Sinclair Buchanan, a tenant on Mara’s land, she was incensed. When Sinclair began his campaign to unfreeze Mara’s bitter heart, she was tempted. But she had no intention of falling in love. Surely she was above stooping to that!
