Recovered Innocence

Book 2

USA Today bestselling author Beth Yarnall introduces two broken souls who discover that keeping their hands off each other is even harder than facing their demons.


Beau: Six years. That’s how long I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the murder of the woman I loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I don’t know who I am or who I want to be. At least I have my sister, Cora. She never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.

Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two years on the run: finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster about her, the same monster who beat me and broke me. Now I’m forced to confide in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him . . . because my love could get us both killed.

Stay up way past your bedtime. Call in sick to work. You’re going to want to finish this book! 

Yarnall’s Dangerous Lines series delivers can't-put-down action, passionate romance, and fast-paced thrills in one-click.

I trusted that jerk, Cal Sellers, once and he broke my heart. Took his size fourteen boots and ground it into dust along with my hopes and dreams. Somehow, I was able to trust again, but my ex was not the man I thought he was. He’s violent and brutal and I refuse to let my daughter anywhere near him.

Who should ride in and save the day like the hero/cowboy he thinks he is? 

Cal Sellers. 

I’m not in a place to say no and Cal knows it. He didn’t get to be a billionaire by not exploiting his enemy’s weaknesses. He, sure as hell, knows mine. To protect my daughter I have to trust Cal. 

But he’s got me right where he wants me—on his arm as his wife. 

“This book definitely kept me on my toes. When I thought I had it figured out, Beth Yarnall kept throwing me a curveball. If you're looking for a sexy suspenseful read, grab a copy of Lush. Fans of secret babies, marriage of convenience, and second chances at love will enjoy this book.” ~ Kati, Romancing Rakes for the Love of Romance

“I really felt Cal and Lucy belonged together. Love the ending. Fantastic!!” ~ April, Goodreads reader

“I have a soft spot for cowboys and SKILLED cowboys make me weak in the knees, so I enjoyed this story very much.” ~ K., Amazon reader
