The State of Texas wasn't big enough for Tyler Randolph and his six rough-and-ready brothers. So the rugged loner set off for New Mexico in search of a lost mine. He was out to find gold in them thar hills, but he struck the real mother lode when he rescued a feisty and independent beauty from the wilderness. Attacked, shot, and left for dead, Daisy was horrified to wake up in Tyler's cabin. Then a blizzard trapped them together, and she was convinced that the mountain man was a fourteen-carat cad - until his unpolished charm claimed her love. Before long, Daisy was determined to do some digger of her own to unearth treasures hidden in Tyler's heart.
