From the dirt and grime of her gold mines in Nevada to the fanciest hotel rooms on the streets of San Francisco, Ava De La Vega lives exactly how she desires: free of attachments and commitments. She enjoys her wealth, spending her money on fine wines, decadent meals, and the company of attractive young men that she tosses away by morning. Her only true love is gold, silver, and the ever sought-after copper.
Unfortunately, for Ava, she doesn’t see Craig coming.
A miner from the snowy Klondike, Craig Harrison now lives in a comfortable, lush apartment in the city. He isn’t looking for a job—especially one that could get him killed. However, the allure of complicated and beautiful Ava won’t allow him to say no to her.
When attacks by claim jumpers become a deadly problem rather than just an annoyance, Ava and Craig are forced to face the ultimate cost to protect her mines, her land, and even each other.
