Tough as barbed-wire cowgirl, Natalie Camden, lives by only one rule – trust no one.
Former Green Beret, Aaron Weber, is sexier than sin and twice as dangerous. He's also war-weary and broken.
His friendship with Natalie has always been complicated.
He knows there are secrets she keeps hidden under that tough-girl façade. He also knows there is a more than enough soft heat and raw need deep within her to keep him satisfied.
When she asks Aaron to add benefits to their friendship, he agrees with a few conditions.
He'll take her virginity all for himself and then teach her the power of submission.
She'll show him how to loosen the binds of control he clings to.
The last thing either of them expected was the passion-ignited flashfire that burns bright enough to illuminate both of their dark pasts.
Aaron vows to find and destroy the man who hurt her.
Natalie seeks to understand the details of the mission that shattered him.
When her past threatens to make a reappearance on Camden Ranch, can she learn to trust him enough to keep her safe?
