From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series comes an irresistible and suspenseful romance between a doctor who plays by the rules and the outlaw who breaks them in order to protect her.
Dr. Presley Baskin has always lived a quiet, calm life. Unfortunately, nothing about her life in Loveless, Texas -- especially not the wild, rowdy, and impossibly close-knit Lawton family who've claimed her -- is quiet or calm. Which is how loner Presley finds herself roped into patching up local bad boy Shot Caldwell against her better judgment. Presley wants nothing to do with the dangerous, brooding leader of the local outlaw motorcycle club. But when someone starts stalking her, Shot is the only person she trusts to help. Plus he owes her one . . . Palmer 'Shot' Caldwell has always known his life isn't made for relationships. At least until shy, secretive, Presley reluctantly pulled a bullet out of him. He's oddly protective of the pretty doctor, so when she comes to him for help, hard-hearted Shot suddenly realizes there's nothing he wouldn't do to keep her safe.
Crownover takes her contemporary western series to dizzying new heights as the last single Lawton sibling finds love in this gripping third Loveless, Texas romance (following Unforgiven). Dr. Presley Baskin, the secret love child of crooked sheriff Conrad Lawton, is instantly embraced by her fiercely loyal half-siblings as the newest member of the Lawton clan. But Presley chooses to shut them out for their own safety; her deranged former friend, Ashby Grant, has been targeting Presley for years and now Presley has reason to believe that Ashby had a hand in her mother's death after a long illness. When Presley patches up biker Palmer "Shot" Caldwell's gunshot wounds, she finds herself with a group of unasked-for bodyguards: the Sons of Sorrow motorcycle club. Shot is determined to repay Presley for saving his life and he can't say he minds keeping an eye on the beautiful doctor. When Presley enlists Shot's help to bring Ashby to justice, he happily obliges, and the pair's chemistry soon becomes too intense to deny. The Lawton siblings are as charming as ever, and Presley and Shot's opposites attract dynamic makes for a passionate, unyielding union. Crownover ends this series with guns blazing.
