Claire Parks fought her way back from the brink of death and now it’s time to celebrate and paint the town red–or at least pink. Letting herself be seduced by a rugged lumberjack who exudes sex appeal seems like just what the doctor ordered. Little does Claire know that the smoldering stranger is undercover police detective Bud Morrison.

He knows just how to protect her, and he’ll do whatever it takes, including keeping her under lock and key. But Claire has fought too hard for life to let herself be locked away and treated like blown glass.
She’s flesh and blood, and all woman. Bud will have to meet her halfway if he wants to make her his, and if they’re to have a hope in hell of outrunning the danger at their heels…
