La carrière d’Amery a toujours primé sur sa vie amoureuse jusqu’au jour où, à l’occasion d’un cours de self défense, elle rencontre un homme qui la trouble au plus haut point. Dès le premier regard, Ronin Black, le maître du dojo, éprouve une vive attirance pour la jeune femme. À tel point qu’il décide de l’entraîner personnellement... en public, mais aussi en privé. Cet homme énigmatique repousse les limites d’Amery. Bientôt, elle ne peut plus se passer de lui et du plaisir qu’il lui procure. Pourtant il lui cache quelque chose, et elle s’en veut de lui avoir accordé une confiance aveugle. L’attachement qu’elle éprouve pour Ronin se révèle bien plus littéral que ce qu’elle aurait pu imaginer.

As the lone girl in the prolific McKay family, Keely McKay doesn’t need another man giving her orders. What she does need is a restoration specialist to help her open her physical therapy clinic—and that expert is none other than buttoned-down, uptight Jack Donohue—her brother’s best friend and a certified pain in her Wranglers.
Jack is this close to securing a career-defining project, until he learns his bachelor status puts him out of contention. When the notoriously hot-bodied-but-hot-tempered Keely begs him for help, he proposes a crazy idea; he’ll personally oversee her restoration—if she acts the part of his fiancée.
Their sizzling lust overtakes common sense and suddenly they’ve gone from butting heads to knocking boots, but outside the bedroom they’re as mismatched as ever. The McKays remind Jack of the humble upbringing he left behind, and country girl Keely feels she doesn’t measure up to Jack’s big-city expectations.
As the dust settles, Jack and Keely worry they’re not fooling anyone but themselves. Can they stop pretending long enough to see that they’ve stumbled on to the real deal?
The last McKay standing is knocked to his knees…
Three years ago, Dalton McKay looked across the altar and saw the woman he knew he’d love for the rest of his life…only it wasn’t his bride-to-be. So he took the McKays’ love-’em-and-leave-’em reputation to new heights, fleeing the ceremony and Wyoming. Now a family crisis has brought Dalton back to Sundance, giving him an opportunity to demonstrate to everyone—especially the woman he thought he lost—that he’s a changed man.
Aurora “Rory” Wetzler has fallen for cowboy hottie Dalton’s smooth-talkin’ ways far too often. He claims he can convince her that he’s playing for keeps this time. Fine. She’ll call that bluff. She can’t ignore their intense chemistry or resist smokin’ hot sex, but she knows she’ll never gamble her heart again.
Dalton has plenty of fences to mend with the McKays, but his biggest fear is that Rory doesn’t believe they have a future. He’ll have to pull out all the stops to prove to her that he can be her only Romeo for a lifetime.
Warning: Contains a sexy cowboy who tames his sassy lady love with his romantic and his kinky side.
