Goes live on Amazon May 10, 2020. There's still time to join my mailing list for a free copy!
I lost it and killed a man. He attacked me first, but that doesn’t excuse what I did. I served some time, paid my debt, but that doesn’t stop me from seeing myself as a murderer. I was drummed out of the Army Rangers and sent home in disgrace. Now I run my father’s ranch—a man who abused my sister and me in the past, and shows nothing but contempt for me now.
To distract myself from the mess I’ve made of my life, I spend my spare time training civilians to fight and survive. No, it isn’t exactly legal and I don’t question their reasons for wanting to take my course. But it has good job satisfaction and helps me keep my own skills sharp.
My clients are usually young guys who think they’re a lot tougher than they really are. Many of them don’t make it through the training. But then along comes this slender, beautiful, dark-eyed woman who turns out to be made of steel underneath. She’s going to make it to the end of this course, and she might even steal my heart while she’s at it.
My loved ones can't understand why I'm so unhappy. It seems like I have it all. They don't know my dirty little secret: while my brother Jake was away serving in Afghanistan, my boyfriend abused me horribly. I went downhill fast, fell into using, became a terrible mother. I had to get away from Hector even if that meant buying him off with the money Jake sent me to look after the family.
I never told anyone what had happened to me and what I'd done; I was too ashamed. Then my life changed for the better and I thought I could leave it all behind me, but instead it's eating me up inside. There's only one thing that can heal me: getting revenge against Hector. I need to do this on my own, to prove something to myself.
Now I've found a man who can teach me the skills I need to achieve my goal. Dev is a gorgeous cowboy, an ex-Army Ranger with ice-blue eyes that are almost as cold as he is. I need the special training he can offer me, but how am I supposed to fight this crazy attraction?
