The hat. The gun. And the desire to protect.
Showing up to invesitgate a double homicide, Sheriff Phoenix Cade almost comes out of his boots when he sees the blonde--the only witness to the crime--covered in blood. He'd danced with her a few nights before and had every intention of getting her number until she threw up all over his shoes. Hell, his shoes would wash.
Ria Portman has spent the better part of six years convincing her family and friends that she could take care of herself. The accident took her sight, but it didn't take her independance. There were a lot of things she'd learned over the years, especially regarding men. They said they could handle her disability, but truth was, they lied.
When her assistant and client are murdered, she will have to rely on one man.
Phoenix is over his ex after catching her cheating, but relationships are like playing with fire. Can he let his guard down long enough to let his heart fall? He'll protect Ria with all that he has, but love is another story...maybe.
