Publisher Description

A hot, wounded veteran struggling to heal & the sweet, goofy weapons expert he can't stop thinking about...

After his combat injuries retire him from the military career he wasn't ready to give up, battle-scarred Hudson Reyes now spends his new life as a movie industry fight scene and weapons specialist simply doing what he knows best: surviving. Until he meets her. The one woman who makes him want to live again.

An antique arms authenticator with a lifetime of martial arts training, Liana Lin has made a living turning the demons of her past into the passions that fuel her life. She's a scrappy little thing. A sweet, angel-faced wrecking ball to his good intentions capable of making him laugh, and turning him inside out.  

And even though she's everything he's told himself he can't have, Hudson can't help but want her. Sure as sin, if one woman could sneak past the barbed wires he's wrapped around his heart, it'd be Lia.

Now if only they could stop sparring long enough to find out...

Loved it

So sweet and awesome I loved their story. I love the family bonds and how they support each other. The whole Cactus Creek Series are sweet romantic books that can be stand alone novels but so much better read in order. Awesome books.

I'm a sucker for a sexy man in uniform, but add in sweet, caring and feisty and I'm head over heels.  I fell in love with Hudson instantly.  The way he treats Lia and how he expects nothing more than her friendship is amazing.  Lia is a virgin widow who was orphaned  and has an amazing foster family.  She is a weapons expert and loves to tackle her stress by working up a sweat.  

I absolutely loved this book and can't wait for the next in the series.  Violet Duke has done it again!
