He was a man worth loving ... Walking into that fight gym was the hardest thing Maureen Bryant had ever done, but the painful memories of the father she barely knew vanished the instant she beheld the fighter in the ring. All sculpted muscles and sun-bronzed skin, Jack Ryan was the most gorgeous man she'd ever seen, a sleek Adonis whose powerful physique left her weak. But she knew better than to surrender her heart to another man who'd give her up without a second thought.
She was a woman worth fighting for ... One look at the gym;s new owner and Jack Ryan almost went down for the count. Yet he knew that beneath her elegant exterior Sully's long-lost daughter couldn't have a heart. Sully had been the father Jack had always needed, the only person who could have turned a troubled youth around. Now Jack was ready to do anything - even climb back into the ring for the biggest challenge of his life - to save Sully's gym from the woman who would let it die. But even as he put on the gloves, something told him that the real fight would be in letting Maureen go.
