Mutinous daughter visiting on vacation? Check. One-night stand who left me with a broken heart three years ago? Check. Serial murders in town? Double check. Liam’s the last person I want to ask for help, but it isn’t every day a detective finds corpses lying with their hearts ripped out. Not even out here in Texas. These are supernatural attacks, and Liam claims to know something about magic and a decade-old curse… I’m going to find out what I can. Even if it means giving this sexy, irresistible tiger shifter a second chance. Liam might be a jerk, but he’s got his demons from a broken past. The real enemy is still out there. And it’s only a matter of time before everyone in the town is dead and heartless.
My brother is an idiot—he’s getting married. And I’m in charge of getting things together since our folks are gone. I honestly don’t have time for this drama. I run a billion-dollar company, have women to entertain, and am working on my plans to rule the world. No, seriously. And yet, when you least expect it, life kicks you in the balls. The beautiful, snarky woman that runs the flower shop is perfect to help me pull off this wedding. Just seeing her sends my head spinning with possibilities. She’s perfect to play my fake wife for an event I have coming up as a side deal. My ex-wife will be at the event, and I sure could use someone to show her how well I’ve done since she ripped out my soul. I’m willing to go all in on what might be the best decision of my life. And I’m demanding the same of her. No maybes. No I-don’t-knows. No fear of what might be or might not be. Open your pretty pink lips and utter the words. Say you do.

For the longest time, I believed we get one shot at true love. A single person that sets our soul on fire. I had that with my wife until she died, then I was lost in a dark sea of grief. In need of companionship, I decided to adopt a dog. What I found at the shelter was so much more. Micha, the volunteer, is insanely cute and ridiculously funny. He awakens feelings within me I never knew existed. Is it possible I may get a second chance at real love?
I hired her to be my girlfriend. To fix my reputation. To save my career. It’s not that I don’t want a girlfriend. I do. I want it all. Wife, kids, side-by-side burial plots. The problem is – I can’t have any of it. So I’ve made myself untouchable. The quintessential bachelor of baseball. Because it’s not worth the risk. Not even for someone I love. Especially not for someone I love.
I never thought that my attempt to escape the aftermath of my stalker would lead me to another nightmare… Heartache.. Running away to a small town in Texas brought me face to face with the most intriguing man I’d ever met in my life. Thomas. Former Marine. Tall, handsome, just my type. And on top of that, he ran an animal rescue. Who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to fall for a guy like him? Me — The broken therapist who was unable to trust another human being. But something about him made me forget about the nightmare I’d left behind in New York. The memory of my stalker was just starting to fade away when… That distant memory became my reality again. Now that he’s back and more violent than ever, will Thomas be able to save my life? And is this a man I can trust with my heart?
