Sometimes you have to fight as hard as you can for the love you want… When a man too sexy for words and too good to be true befriends her at the dance club where she works, Crystal Dean knows she can’t act on the way he makes her heart race. His good-guy persistence and hard-bodied protectiveness weaken her defenses and make her yearn. But the bright smile and good show she puts on aren’t for his pleasure-her little sister’s life depends on it.
Shane Brody can’t turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Army Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation. Nor can he walk away from the gorgeous blonde waitress his gut tells him is in trouble. Her incredible sensuality doesn’t mask the sadness in her baby blues. When her job and the mission his war buddies are running intersect, reckless passion blazes between them. But then Crystal witnesses a crime and becomes a target, and Shane must convince her to trust in his ability to protect her sister, her life…and her heart.
