Jenny is lost. She was sure that dedicating her life to being a war correspondent was enough. She didn't need a relationship, she didn't want a family and spending only a few weeks a year back home in London wasn't a big deal. That was until it all went wrong. That was until she watched her friend die in her arms. That day changed everything.
So what's a girl to do? Run away, that's what. Luckily, running is what Jenny does best. The small town of Portamaine, Texas is everything she thinks she needs to get her head sorted. It's safe, it's quiet and no one is shooting at her. Little did she know that bullets were the least of her problems when Jackson barges his way into her life. One awkward first encounter and several run-ins later, she's doing her very best not to succumb to his southern charm, but her traitorous body has other ideas.
Jackson, a local construction worker gave up on love a long time ago. So when a brunette beauty launches herself at him and manages to get in a few punches, even he's surprised by his reaction to her. There's no doubt she's trouble but he can't seem to keep away.
