Deputy sheriff Russ Riley, the player of Verde County, carries a terrible secret that stands in the way of a happy life with Angie Baxter, the spirited victim of a rash of violent crimes, whom he will protect, serve…and worship.
Angie Baxter is strong, sweet, and fiercely independent. She not only divorced her violent husband but rescued and raised his abused son, and she fulfilled a dream of running her own handmade soap and cosmetics shop. No man will ever again rule her existence or hold sway over the people she loves-no matter if he’s brave, handsome, and all that stands between her and a band of ruthless criminals.

“Are we through here, Deputy Riley? I need to get the shop open in case I do get any business today.”
Okay, she was mad at him personally.
“’Deputy?”? What happened to ‘Russ’?” he taunted even as her delicate perfume tempted him to pull her into his arms.
Angie glared at him. “Roxanne came by the shop for a new lipstick for her hot date last night with the local man-whore. I thought we were going to have a fling but apparently you changed your mind. My bad for giving a damn.”
Russ’s lips tightened as her barb struck home. “We had our fling, Angie. You said you wanted a fling and now we’ve had it.”
“We didn’t have a fling, we had a one-night stand,” she said coldly.
“A fling, a one-night stand, whatever,” he said. “Look, Angie, I’m sorry if I’ve pissed you off, but you told me you weren’t interested in anything heavy and I took you at your word. You’re giving off mixed signals, ma’am, and maybe you need to decide what you really want before you tangle with the next guy.”
Angie was silent for a minute.
“You are probably right about that. Next time I’ll be sure not to tangle with a bed-hopping lowlife with fewer morals than his own tomcat and find somebody who really wants a fling. Have a nice day, deputy.”
