Matt Montgomery is done with the fast life. After ten years in the military and two years running with the Iron Nomads, he longs for stability. His brother, Dylan, owns a thriving construction business in Laurel Creek, a sleepy little town in upstate New York, and Matt is finally ready to accept his brother’s offer to become partners. But, before he can be free of the Nomads, he has one last job to do for them. He must find and deliver a hustler named Frank Tanner to the notorious MC. As luck would have it, Frank has ties to Laurel Creek, which makes Matt’s job easier. Or does it?
Emma Campbell has fought hard to build a life for herself after finally divorcing her abusive husband five years ago. She’s happy, confident, independent and has sworn off men. That is, until her ex, Frank, returns to Laurel Creek in an insane attempt to extort money from her. With no other choice, she accepts protection from her best friend’s sexy brother in law.
Finding himself deeply involved with his target’s ex-wife, Matt must find a way to complete his objective without Emma discovering his real reason for returning Laurel Creek.
Can Matt keep his deception hidden from Emma, or will his lies jeopardize everything? Can Emma ever move past the hurt she suffered at the hands of Frank, or has he irreparably damaged her?
