From the first and grime of her gold mines in Nevada to the fanciest hotel rooms on the on the streets of San Francisco, Ava De La Vega lives exactly how she desires: enjoying herself and spending her money on fire wines, decadent meals, and the company of attractive young men that she tosses away by morning. She loves only three things—gold, silver, and the ever sought-after copper.
A ex-miner from the snowy Klondike, Craig Harrison isn’t looking for work–especially one that could get him killed. However, after Ava offers him a job in her mines, he finds that he just can’t say no to her.
When attacks by claim jumpers become a deadly problem rather than just an annoyance, Ava’s fight to protect what is hers becomes more than she bargained for, and one that could cost her, not only her land, but the life of the man who she’s starting to fall for.
Can they survive? Or will they lose everything, including each other?
