my crew on the east rim just after dawn,” she said crisply. “We’ll probably shoot most of the day and into the evening, if the light holds. Any problems with that?”

      “No. Just check in with me when you leave the area.”

      Nodding, she swung around to head back to the café. She’d better remind Zack to curtail his night-owl TV watching or it would take a stick of dynamite to roust him before dawn tomorrow.

      “Sydney…”

      “Yes?”

      He hesitated, then curled that wicked, wonderful mouth into a real-live smile.

      “Steer clear of falling rocks.”

      “I will.”

      She’d steer clear of falling rocks and former lovers and too-handsome engineers. In fact, she swore silently as she reached for the café’s screened door, she’d go out of her way to avoid any and all possible distractions until she finished the shoot and shook the dust of Chalo Canyon from her heels forever.

She caught a brief glimpse of the silver Diamond-C logo on its side door before the utility vehicle squealed to a stop a few yards away. Her stomach knotted when she saw that the man at the wheel wasn’t Jamie Chavez, but his father.

      Okay, girl, she told herself bracingly. You knew this confrontation had to come sooner or later.

      Yeah, herself answered, but we were hoping for later.

      Come on! Get a grip here. You’re not the same easy mark you were the last time you faced Sebastian Chavez.
