Her mother’s death. His PTSD. A combustible relationship.
Ashley Bryant has less than five weeks left to organize, sell, and pack away her old life before she’s uprooted and forced into a completely new one. She needs to make several critical decisions and with her life upended and spiraling out of control, the last thing Ashley needs is a sexy U.S. Marine complicating matters.
Emmy Atler is desperate for a job so she can help her grandfather with his increasing medical bills. She even applies to be a maid for Jason Belmont, recluse writer, who's known more for the murder of his cheating wife and her lover than his popular thrillers. He may have gotten off on a technicality, but everyone knows he's guilty. Just because he's quiet and awkward doesn't mean he's actually innocent. Just because he treats Emmy with warmth and respect doesn't mean he's not capable of killing her with his bare hands.
She heard two men talking about killing some poor guy named Alastair. She only wanted to warn him--to save his life--but she soon found herself embroiled in his mess.
He might be drop dead gorgeous. She might be forming a real attachment to his dog. But is any man worth this?
Running for her life with a truly delicious hero, the help of his seven equally yummy brothers and one adorable dachshund named Jaws?
