The Lady: After her father´s accidental death, it was up to young Fancy Cranson to keep her small family together. But to survive in the pristine woodlands of the Pacific Northwest, she had to use her brains or her body. With no other choice, Fancy vowed she´d work herself to the bone before selling herself to any timberman – even one as handsome, virile, and arrogant as Chance Dawson. The Logger: from the moment Chance Dawson laid eyes on Fancy, he wanted to claim her for himself. But the mighty woodsman had felled forests less stubborn than the beautiful orphan. To win her hand, he would trade his roughhewn ways for tender caresses, and brazen curses for soft words of desire. Only then would he be able to share with her a love that united them in passionate splendor. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Cook.
