In this seductive new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Falling in Deeper, mixing business with pleasure can be a dangerous proposition...
Jolie Quinn is a woman in charge. Her no-nonsense attitude has made her a rising star in the fashion world and her brand a household name among the Dallas elite. Nothing will stop her from achieving her goals—not even the gorgeous British security contractor who seems just as interested in seeing her personal assets as he is in protecting her professional ones.
After a tragedy left him broken, Heath Powell made a rule of staying unattached. But Jolie challenges him in a way he can’t ignore, and he isn’t used to backing down from a confrontation—especially when the reward for winning could feel so good. As passion blazes between them, the stubborn, confident beauty arouses more than his desire. She touches his heart.
When a mysterious enemy threatens Jolie and her company, Heath is the only person Jolie can trust to help. But working with him to save her business might put her dangerously at risk of falling in love...

Another great book in this series
This series never gets old. Ms. Black has done it again. Heath and Jolie's story is everything I love in a story. Our hero is a little damaged from the loss of his wife in a tragic way 6 years ago. He feels helpless since he couldn't save her and doesn't really live any more, he just exists. Jolie is married to her job. She doesn't have time for dating or men in general. She is a tough lady who runs a million dollar business and has a heart of gold. It doesn't take Heath and Jolie long to give into the heat that burns between them. When Jolie's life is threatened, Heath will do whatever it takes to protect her. He can't lose her like he lost his first wife. I was on the edge of my seat for the last half of the book. I loved the suspense and the ride I was on. The climax of the story brought me to tears as I was completely in the moment of Heath and Jolie's love. Loved this story.
I loved at the end, how we got to catch up with all of the couples from the series. Such a great read.
