"I adore Kristen Ashley's books!"---Maya Banks, New York Times bestselling author
She's ready for the ride of her life . . .
Lauren Grahame is looking to reinvent herself. After leaving her cheating husband, Lauren moves to Carnal, Colorado, and gets a job as a waitress in a biker bar called Bubba's. It's a nothing job in a nowhere joint . . . until Tatum Jackson walks in. Lauren has never seen a man with such good looks, muscles, and attitude. But when he insults her, Lauren doesn't want anything to do with him. Too bad for Lauren he's also the bar's part owner and bartender.
When the rough-around-the-edges Tate meets the high-class Lauren, he thinks she won't fit in at Bubba's. Yet there's more to Lauren than meets the eye, and Tate soon sets his mind on claiming her as his own. Before long, the desire burning between them is heating up the cold mountain air. But when violence strikes the town, Tate must reveal a dark secret to Lauren-one that may put an end to their sweet dreams.
In Ashley's second Colorado Mountain novel (after The Gamble), a biker bar in Carnal, Colo., is the perfect spot for a divorc e who wants to work in an unmemorable place. Lauren Grahame is starting to enjoy the simple life she has created for herself when she meets one of the bar's owners, Tate Jackson. Though Tate is one of the most gorgeous men she has ever met, Lauren isn't sure she can easily forgive the insulting things he says after their first meeting. Tate's apology assuages her eventually, and Lauren can't help but be attracted to this man whose kindness is masked by his gruff exterior. As sparks fly between Tate and Lauren, she is threatened by a serial rapist, and Tate vows to keep her safe. Tate's domineering behavior is offset by his compassionate nature; in both cases he feels larger than life. Plentiful, graphic sex scenes will appeal to fans of racy romance.
