I’m in this town for work, not to find love.
“Ha-ha,” says Love, right before it kicks me in the gut.
Aiden Clarke is growly, grumpy, and currently looking at me like he wants to rip my head clean off my shoulders.
And I…like it?
It’s been far too long, and he’s far too gorgeous. Too bearded. Entirely too hot-blooded and male for my poor panties.
Except I’m his sworn enemy. I’m the woman trying to build a hotel right in the middle of his precious town.
Screw me for doing my job, right?
If only I were that lucky.
I should just leave, but things are never that easy. Aiden wraps me in his arms, kisses me senseless, and offers me the one thing I never thought I’d have.
Even as secrets threaten to drive us apart, how can I walk away? How can I turn my back on something that feels a lot like love?
Dominic Clarke is big, burly, and on the wrong side of a family feud.
Off. Freaking. Limits.
Ten years after leaving, I’m back in my hometown with my tail between my legs.
Living with my parents after a failed engagement doesn’t exactly scream ‘I’ve-got-my-life-together’.
You know what else makes me want to crawl into a hole and never come out?
The man is built like a Greek god.
Hands calloused from woodworking, muscles honed over all the years I’ve been away.
Just give me a minute, here.
I need to pick my jaw up off the floor.
Oh, and my panties, too. How did they get down there?
I want to climb him like a tree, but there’s a problem.
We’re supposed to hate each other.
Our families have been fighting for generations, and being with him would definitely add ‘disowned’ to the list of my accomplishments.
But boundaries were made for crossing…right?
One wild night.
That’s all it was supposed to be.
Then I find out Mr. Wild Night is my new coworker, and he has a dirty little secret of his own.
Ethan Clarke is hiding something.
Our night together was a mistake.
I was lonely and drinking and Ethan happened to be sitting on the bar stool next to mine.
I was in the mood for a bad decision.
I didn’t know I’d end up working with him.
Didn’t know he’d be in the center of the controversy I’m here to investigate.
Didn’t know he’d be so damn charming.
Suddenly, bad decisions seem more attractive.
Getting tangled up in Ethan’s bedsheets is a lot more fun than finding out who the town arsonist happens to be…
…Until Ethan’s past comes to light, and bad decisions taste a lot like betrayal.
