When Amy Shannon shows up at his bar, Jase concludes that she does not belong in a dive like his. Still he figures he can score with her before he sends her on her way. However, he soon realizes how far outside her lane she is when thugs threaten her if she fails to stop her inquiries over what happened to her former brother-in-law. Unable to mind his business, Jase decides to protect Amy, not expecting to fall in love with visiting Miss Innocent.

This is a reprint of a 1980s tale (written under the name Stephanie James).
