I have read Susan Mallery books before, but none in this series. I so want to move to Fool’s Gold! I want to have the closeness with neighbors, the friendliness and concern they all have for each other. And a town full of hunks? Every woman’s dream! Everyone has a past. Some are more damaging than others. But even without knowing that past you can feel the sorrow and hurt they project and through the written word and Susan Mallery makes you want to be there to help heal them.
Angel Whittaker earned his scars the hard way, but the scars that can’t be seen are the ones that haunt him the most. Since he moved to Fool’s Gold, California, he’s cobbled together a life for himself as a bodyguard trainer. If he’s not exactly happy, at least his heart is safe.
Working with pro-football superstars taught tough-talking PR woman Taryn Crawford one thing—she can go toe-to-toe with any man. But then dark, dangerous former Special Ops Angel targets her for seduction…and challenges her to resist his tempting kisses.
Even in four-inch heels, Taryn never backs down. Unless, somehow, Angel can convince her that surrender might feel even better than victory.
