LOTS of sexual content. Patrick is a naughty boy until he meets Elaine. So there's the warning--if you keep reading, have fun! (It's meant to be fun. *wink*)
There's a new guy in town...
"Patrick Knight, single, retired Guard-turned private investigator. I was a closer. A deal maker. I looked clients in the eye and told them I’d get their shit done. And I did..."
Patrick doesn't do "nice."
At least, not anymore.
After his fiancé cheats, he follows up with a one-night stand and a disastrous office hook-up. His business partner (Derek Alexander) sends him to the desert to get his head straight--and clean up the mess.
While there, Patrick meets Elaine, and blistering sparks fly, but she's not looking for any guy. Or a long-distance relationship.
Patrick's ready to do anything to keep her, but just when it seems he’s changed her mind, the skeletons from his past life start coming back.
Standalone, M/F, HEA
Patrick has just had his heart handed to him on a plate and he vows never to that vulnerable again. So he moves on to a new city and new job with Alexander-Knight – and is more than a little careless with a few female hearts.
To escape the fallout from yet another indiscretion, Derek sends Patrick to a conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. Patrick resolves that he will buckle down and concentrate on business. But when he sees Elaine Merritt for the first time, he knows that he has met his match.
Neither one of them is ready for the ferocity of the connection between them. But the closer that they get to having to say goodbye, Patrick knows that he will do whatever it takes to be with Elaine – forever…
“Last night, I’d made love to her every way I could before we were both falling asleep, still holding each other. I wanted to tell her I loved her as I watched her eyes drift closed and her breathing soften, but I couldn’t. It was way too soon, and I had all that shit to deal with back home. Nothing had prepared me for Elaine. Nothing in my past had this intensity. No relationship, no job, nothing had ever felt the way I did when we talked, when we touched, when her body wrapped around mine. For the first time in a year, I could honestly say what happened with Stacy was for the best. It truly felt like everything had conspired to draw me to this place specifically to meet this woman.”
