Book Tag Line 

Nicole Bradford will have to trust Max Paradis with her guilty secret if she wants to win his love and get her ex, Carlo, out of her life for good. If she doesn’t Carlo could destroy everything that matters most to her.

Book Blurb

Passion ignites between Nicole Bradford and Max Paradis the moment they lay eyes on each other, but despite the sizzling attraction and Max’s to-die-for-kisses, Nicole is reluctant to get involved. She’s been burned by love before.

Carlo had been her ideal mate but the dream became a nightmare when his drug smuggling past was revealed.

Now all Nicole wants is to get on with her life and keep the secret she’s been hiding for the last six years.

Still, how can she resist the handsome and sexy Max when he’s everything she’s ever wanted in a man? And what will she do when Carlo returns and threatens to expose her ugly past?


He came closer and the heady scent of his cologne invaded her senses, making her lightheaded. She sucked in a deep breath and tried to steady her pounding heart.

Yep, a whole lotta trouble, here.

A smart woman would walk away.

Nicole Bradford was a smart woman. Yes siree.

She didn’t move. Instead, she reached out and stroked his cheek. His soft skin made her fingertips tingle.

His lips parted.

Blood roared through her ears, drowning out reason. Want—no, need—raced through her. Rising up on her tiptoes, she brushed her lips over his.

Max pulled back and stared, probably as stunned by her action as she but before she had time to say anything, he crushed her against his strong, muscular body. His mouth moved over hers, devouring its softness.

Wave after wave of pleasure crashed over her. The rational part of her brain begged her to stop this madness. She’d only met the man moments ago. But, oh my, the taste of his mouth and the feel of his hands in her hair and his citrusy scent—

A sudden noise had her jerking away from him. Turning, she found Reed standing in the doorway.

Max uttered a soft curse.

Reed chuckled. “Well, it looks like you two have met so I’ll spare you the introduction.”
