“A sizzling combination of heat and heart.” Barbara Freethy, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Detective Maddox Kelly likes his shirts ironed, his puzzles solved, and his heart locked up tight, until the one-who-got-away returns to town and upends his well-ordered life.
Maddox retains fond memories of Harper Mitchell—or so he tells himself when his dreams of her and how she walked away don’t keep him up all night. But now she’s back, hot and sweet as ever, but he’s not foolish enough to get attached when the free-spirit will surely just leave town again.
A family emergency returns Harper to Sawyer Beach and she intends to keep her head down and her suitcases packed. The tempting lure of that sexy, impossible-to-forget man is hard to ignore, however. Surely one more taste of the fruit of first love won’t break her heart.
Enjoy the 7-Stud Club! Seven poker night buddies who are very good with their hands…and are about to lose their hearts! Only great risk leads to great reward…
