Their luck may be tough, but their love is much tougher. It just might not be enough to save their lives.
Newly released from prison and haunted by his time inside – and the injustice that put him away in the first place – ex-con Nathan Baldwin knows his life is too complicated for love and romance. Yes it was self-defense, but the world sees him as a murderer.
But the longer he works at Shakedown, the more he realizes he doesn't care what the world thinks. Only what SHE thinks.
Dancer Starr O’Malley is glad for her new start. Sure the stage of a burlesque club is not where she thought her dreams would take her, but she and her sisters are together again. They’ve risen above the grimy sorrows of their childhood and are building a future. She’s finally able to let her grief-toughened heart soften a little.
Specifically towards the sad-eyed bouncer with the scarred face who makes her breath come faster.
Two shattered souls stumble into each other's lives. And beds… and finally dare to have hopes for the future…together.
But when the brother of Nathan’s victim comes looking for revenge, it puts Starr right in the crosshairs.
Steamy contemporary, romantic suspense, second chance at love, found family, bad boy she can’t resist, absolution, revenge.
