The only thing Homicide Detective Nick Sheridan wants is to drink and forget the most disturbing case of his career in the arms of a warm, willing woman.
What Nick gets is the Last Shot bar and grill in Freedom, Texas, a fleabite of a town on the Texas coast. And Della Rose, single mother, waitress--and a woman who hates cops.
When her boss is murdered and the local police chief won’t investigate, Della is forced to turn to Nick to help find the killer.
Though reluctant to look into her boss’s death, Nick’s all too willing to engage in a red-hot affair with Della. He’s falling hard for her but Della doesn’t believe in love. She rejects anyone who might hurt her or make her feel too deeply—even a man as driven to protect and serve as Nick.
Catching the killer could tear apart Della’s life. Unless they can overcome the past and trust in their love.
