A 2019 RITA Award finalist!Bree Bracelyn doesn't date cops. It's a personal rule that quavers when Austin Dugan flashes his baby blues—and his badge—at Ponderosa Resort's grand opening. Bree's the family fixer, running the resort's PR and her siblings' lives with cheerful efficiency. But one thing in Bree's past can't ever be fixed, which is why she's staying the hell away from Officer Hottie.
Austin's heart tacks up a wanted poster with Bree's name the instant he lays eyes on her. Okay, the no-cops rule is an obstacle, but not impossible for a guy ambitious enough to be a shoo-in as the next police chief. Besides, he knows Bree's into him, whether they're flirting over weird flatware or getting frisky in the front seat of his vintage Volvo.
As Bree and Austin bond over cupcakes and hot springs hookups, Bree knows it's a matter of time before the skeletons in her closet topple into a messy heap on Austin's squeaky-clean life. Is there hope for a happy ending, or will their love end up DOA?
