“Heart-melting and guaranteed to make you laugh and cry before you finish the last page.” — New York Times Bestselling Author Sawyer Bennett
From the author of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Can’t Resist series comes a fun, romantic standalone novel in the USA TODAY bestselling Cactus Creek series.
He’s a better fighter…but she has all the weapons.
After his combat injuries retire him … combat injuries retire him from the military career he wasn’t ready to give up, battle-scarred Hudson Reyes now spends his new life as a movie industry fight scene and weapons specialist simply doing what he knows best: surviving.
Until he meets her. The one woman who makes him want to live again.
An antique arms authenticator with a lifetime of martial arts training, Liana Lin has made a living turning the demons of her past into the passions that fuel, and fill, her life. She’s a scrappy little thing. A sweet, angel-faced wrecking ball to his good intentions capable of making him laugh, and turning him inside out. Hell’s bells, watching her execute that wicked roundhouse kick of hers shouldn’t be a turn-on–especially not when his head is the receiving target–but hot damn, it is. She’s a fiery, unpredictable paradox who wears her heart on her sleeve, despite the wounds he knows she has hidden as deeply as he hides his own.
Even though she’s everything he’s told himself he can’t have, Hudson can’t help but want her. Sure as sin, if one woman could sneak past the barbed wires he’s wrapped around his heart, it’d be Lia.
Now if only they could stop sparring long enough to find out…
