When an Army nurse’s life is shattered by war, it takes the love of an old flame to help her put all the pieces back together.
Delaney Lyons returns from Afghanistan with a Purple Heart, a prosthetic foot and survivor’s guilt. She’d rather have just bought the T-shirt. After months of physical therapy and pain, she withdraws to her apartment. She wants to be left alone. Her worried sister talks small town cop Quinn Cates, who once carried a torch for Delaney, into bringing Delaney home. Delaney figures she’ll go through the motions of rehab again, and after a few weeks, when her sister stops worrying, she can escape back to her solitary life.
What she doesn’t figure on? Quinn getting in her space and under her skin on a regular basis. Between his hot glances and bad-boy grins, she isn’t sure if she wants to lick his chiseled muscles or hit him with a dumbbell. Solution: Label the dangerous man “off limits” and ignore him. But the darn man practically dares her to commit to rehab. Can she find the strength to try again, or will she miss her last chance to grasp her life back?
Off limits? Not bloody likely. Quinn Cates went to the trouble of kidnapping Delaney’s ornery behind back home–he isn’t going to let them miss their second chance at lust…love…whatever. Sparks fly as Quinn’s brothers get involved while the town grapevine calls the play-by-play.
