Bomb tech and firefighter Alex Langston has a reputation around the station as a bad-boy, love ’em and leave ’em type, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. He wants nothing more than a quiet life after a military tour that saw him in some very hot situations overseas. He garners more than his fair share of feminine attention, but hasn’t felt so much as a spark of interest for any woman since landing in Ironwood, Arizona … until now.
Schoolteacher Veronica Quentin was warned to keep her guard up around Alex. The last thing she wants is to be a notch on some sexy stud’s bedpost. She’s been used before, and knows well the heartache that can bring. But that was before she saw him. And before he rescued her from a mysterious kidnapping that saw her chained half-naked in the town square with a bomb strapped to her chest.
But is Veronica the real target? Or has someone set their sights on Alex?
Until they find out, they can’t trust anyone but each other. And the sensual flames that ignite whenever they’re together.
