Here, a man who doesn't believe in love and a woman who doesn't trust in it find out just how wrong they can be... A Man With a Past J.D. Carver learned life's tough lessons on the streets, so when an unexpected inheritance sends him to the Star Lake Lodge to claim his half, he's expecting trouble. Being greeted with open arms by the whole Lawrence gang-feisty Aunt Sophy and calm Uncle Ben, clearly off-limits Dru and her young son, Tate-just convinces him they're working an angle, and he's determined to uncover it. Even though a tiny part of him longs for the home-and-hearth life they have... A Woman With a Reputation Dru's finally beaten her bad-girl reputation, and though the Lodge may not be exciting, she's fiercely protective of her quiet home. Hard-eyed J.D.'s ability to push all her buttons-some of which haven't been pushed in way too long-just proves how wrong he is for her. So why does her son hero-worship the guy? And why does her heart clench when he gets that "nose pressed against the candy shop window" look on his face In Love . . . and All Shook Up They thought they knew everything their lives had to offer . . . until they met. Can a failed good girl and a guy who never caught a break learn to believe in one another long enough to trust their love?
Rule One: Don't Let Him In When photographer Nick Coltrane saunters into Daisy Parker's office, all she sees is the man who broke her heart nine years ago. Never mind that he wants to hire her as his bodyguard-ah, security specialist-or that her fledgling company desperately needs the cash flow. She'd once broken her own rules, only to watch his sexy self go running for the door. Providing round-the-clock protection for him now is out of the question ... right? Rule Two: Always Be Able To Walk Away Nick needs Daisy around to keep the hired thugs that are out for his blood from actually getting it. If he can make amends for the way he screwed up nine years ago in the process, then so much the better. Except time has done nothing to dull the memory of how Daisy once rocked his world off its axis and her cocky attitude and mouthwatering curves still have the power to turn his brain to mush. Well, that doesn't mean Nick can't handle living hand-in-glove with the one woman he's been obsessed with for years. Yeah. Sure he can. Some Rules Were Made To be Broken In the city by the bay, two people who once were friends and used to be lovers will discover if love and trust can come from a passion that breaks every rule.
