Just once, good girl Tate Cross wants to experience a red-hot, no-strings-attached affair. She’s temporarily left her graphic artist position in Denver to settle her aunt’s estate in Spearfish, South Dakota, but the city won’t let her sell the property until the landscaping is up to snuff. The Native American landscape contractor her friend highly recommends looks like he can meet all her needs, in the flowerbed and out.
Nathan LeBeau believes few women look at the Native American man beneath the filthy work clothes and hard hat. When Tate offers to trade art lessons for dirt work, the tempting subtext is as plain as the lettering on the side of Nathan’s truck. But in truth, he’s tired of relationships based solely on sex. His goal of proving he’s not completely hopeless in matters of the heart is second only to his dream of expanding his business.
It figures. Tate wants no-holds-barred sex right about the time the one-time Casanova wants a good old-fashioned romance. Bring on the battle of wills!

Tate is tired of always being a good girl and would like nothing more than for Nathan to dirty her up a little but Nathan has other ideas! He has had more than his fair share of one night stands and now he's looking for something more! Nathan wants romance in his life and even if taking it slow has him all clenched up, he is determined to do right by the endearing Tate but Tate is a determined woman and right now her sights are firmly set on Nathan!
Well the title says dirty but I suspect the author’s regular readers might be a tad confused. It's a sweet story about two people connecting and although initially there's embarrassment, it's pretty clear the outcome will be worth the journey. I loved Nathan and thought Tate had him tied up in knots but then I wished they could have possibly connected a little sooner. It felt strange as they skirted around each other and went from hot to cold and then back again!
This story jumped about a bit too much for me and although I liked both central characters it's not my favourite by this author. A sweet romance to satisfy romantics everywhere.
