It had been years since Milena Reinhart had seen TJ “Rock” Rockwell. He’d torn her heart out of her chest, and she still hadn’t completely recovered. TJ had left his sniper days behind him for good when he’d left the army and become a respected Texas highway patrolman. But he never forgot the girl he’d loved and stupidly given up. Neither thought they’d ever see each other again.

Kasey Dawson thought she'd never get over the death of her husband. Nash, with his strong hands and infinite patience, is stirring something she hasn't felt in a long time. Kasey knows the sexy cowboy isn't telling her everything about this past, though. And she refuses to risk heartbreak all over again. But her kids have a plan of their own: Nothing will keep them from having a real family again - even if it takes a little help from Santa himself.

I'm his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt. I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment? They told me he'd mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body. But I didn't realize it would be complete anarchy. I should've known better. When Mount's involved, there are no rules. I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I'll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact. But he has other plans....

It is difficult to bring the reader into a story where there are personal occurrences.
The life we live is just that.... the life we live.
This book touches on a lot of feelings some people run from.
Great job writing a great series of such characters. Thank you!
