His brother, Bash, is finally back on track to make a big name for himself in the boxing world, but when his golden opportunity gets taken away, there's nothing Matty won't do to fix it. Even if it means making a deal with the devil...and his bossy, redheaded protégé.
Cat Thomas has never been the kind of girl to stick. A self-professed infatuation junky, she latches on the newest, hottest guy on the block, then finds a reason - real or imagined - to dump him.

She can't resist the man, even after all these years apart, and that just won't do.

That's why it's vital that I go to 1836 and find the man who conned my brother out of his Time Travel Mechanism as quickly as possible.
