Opposites Attract? Dr. Emilie Getz and Jonas Fielding are as different as two people could possibly be-the same age, with the same faith, living in the same small Pennsylvania town.

She sticks to the rules; he likes to break them. Shers"s into saving relics; hers"s into saving souls. The one trait they share is a penchant for controlling every aspect of their lives, including their stubborn hearts. When Emiliers"s search for an archaeological treasure leads her to the one piece of land she canrs"t have (thanks to Jonas), they choose opposing sides in an engaging battle of wits. Emilie, a no-nonsense sort of woman, is determined to have her way. But Jonas is on a mission as well: He wants to hear Emilie laugh. Often.
