There’s something odd about Kade Colton, and not just his refusal to taste Felicity Hammond’s famous baking. Sure, he’s the sexiest cowboy she’s ever seen, but working midnights doesn’t explain his aversion to daylight. Her father warns her to steer clear, but when a foreclosure notice threatens to close the family business, Felicity will try anything to save it—even answering Kade’s scandalous questions.
Kade lives by two rules: work alone, and don’t get involved. But it’s easier to hunt a jackalope in Yellowstone than get information in Holly Hill without drawing attention. Even if it means breaking his rules, Felicity’s connections are exactly what he needs. And no matter how he tries to ignore it, there’s something about her that’s got him feeling alive for the first time in years...
There’s nothing Morghram hates more than storms, but when he sees a woman trapped in the sea with a wild storm fast approaching, fear of foul weather must be pushed aside.
But saving Eona’s life means getting tangled in her business. Shipwrecked in pursuit of the thief who ruined her life, her escort is lost, leaving her to pursue justice alone.
Adventure isn’t high on the list of things Morghram is looking for, but Eona’s promise of rich rewards could change his life, restoring the comfortable lifestyle stolen by the wartime injury that forced him to forsake his career.
Though tired and past his prime, his sword is king’s steel, and the scars on his body prove his skill was hard won. Together, they may just stand a chance.
