Quinn was prepared to let Colt go. What she wasn’t prepared for was the inexplicable pull she feels towards his brother, Harrison Hunt.
Harrison lies bloodied, broken and bruised in a hospital bed. He knows how he got there, how badly he’s hurt… how close he came to death. The one thing he doesn’t know is who the girl with the piercing green eyes is, or why she frequents his dreams every night.
Colt doesn’t want to let go, but Quinn can’t hold on anymore. Her infatuation with a man she’s never met has made it impossible.
Harrison has a secret he’ll guard with his life, can he move out of the darkness and open up to Quinn? Or will the fact that his brother is in love with her be too much to live with?
I still had no idea how to deal with my brothers feelings for the beautiful woman in front of me. And call me an asshole, but right now, with her standing there in her underwear, it’s the least of my worries.
The scars marring my body, that she’ll see any moment, are the source of the fear that slices through my veins. I know she’ll ask. One thing I do know about her is that she leaves nothing much unsaid.
The question is… am I willing to lie just to keep her?
I was an idiot.
I sighed in defeat. “I know he’s an asshole Q. I really do. But I don’t know how to forget him. I don’t want him in my life, not ever again… but I miss the future that our relationship should have had, if he were different that is. I should have been planning a future with him. It should have been my next step, I should be expecting a child with my loving husband… but I’m not. And now I don’t think it will ever be on the cards for me.”
The last thing El is looking for is love, and she’s especially not prepared to get caught up in her best friends hotter than hell big brother.
“I felt my mouth hang open as I turned to look at him. The air between us crackled with tension, sexual and otherwise. But before I could even come up with some witty remark to throw back at him, he took a couple of steps towards me. He was so close I could smell him.”
Lawson doesn’t give a shit about love. It’s the absolute last thing on his mind.
“From that moment on, I decided love was a load of crap. Commitment? Ridiculous. Feelings? Unnecessary. I became a heartless bastard who wanted nothing more than casual encounters with plenty of women.” I felt El flinch, but I carried on, she needed to hear it. “For the last ten years, I haven’t had anything other than a series of meaningless fucks. I’ve never developed any feelings towards a single woman I’ve been with. There was never any difference between any of them.”
She’s heartbroken and stubborn.
He’s wounded and proud.
The last thing either of them is prepared for is finding that once in a lifetime, fairy-tale love.
“You are the difference Ellerslie. The only difference.”
Having Lawson make love to me was like burning slowly. The look in his eyes lit the match, the touch of his hands stoked the fire, and our passion fed the flames.
They both have demons in their pasts, the question is, will that be what comes back to haunt them? Or will some unforeseen force be what tries to tear them apart?
