Cold River Falls was supposed to be a place to start over. No more fights. No more killing for the mob. Just an escape from the demons from my broken past. A new name, a new life, a new clean future.
That plan is going pretty great, until she walks through the front door of my bakery.
Curvy and sweet. Tempting and innocent. Sophie Caradine pulls me in like no other woman ever has. She captivates me, like a moth to flame. She’s a goodness I’ve never once known.
I should stay the hell away from Sophie. But when trouble from both our pasts comes looking for her, there ain’t no way I’m standing by.
Getting involved could jeopardize everything. Getting close to her could destroy the peace I’ve built for myself.
I used to use these rough hands in anger. But now, all I want to use them for is loving her. Now, all I want to do is hold her close, keep her safe, and never let her go.
And you can be damn sure I won’t.
