Tortured by a violent past, ex-con Jase Hollister is looking to start over in a small town.
The rugged bachelor suffering from PTSD longs for peace and quiet, always keeping his women at a distance and his heart encased in stone.
Brook Lynn Dillon is a down-on-her-luck waitress determined to avoid the man every woman in town wants including her sister. The last thing she needs is his kind of trouble. But his every glance makes her burn…and her resistance is melting fast.
The two agree to a one-time fling, not expecting to be forever branded. Now, no matter how hard they try, they can’t keep their hands off each other. But when a secret from Jase’s past comes to light, they’ll have to face a cold, hard truth: it’s more than Jase’s freedom on the line, it’s their hearts.
