Hailey Taylor knows ski racing, and it's paid off, because she's a champion. The top of her game. Until she wiped out last season and blew out her knee. Her body may have recovered, but her head's not back in the game. Meeting Lucas Mills doesn't help, because the instant connection they share is just too good to ski away from. And when Lucas is game for getting his best friend in on their bed sport? Hailey's ready to play.
Lucas is in love with Hailey. He's all in, from the first moment he sees her. But he knows he's not perfect, not with his PTSD from being deployed. He wants to make sure she's got someone watching out for her, besides him. Because the one thing he's learned between war and the murder of his sister, bad things can happen.
Cy Seaborn's dad is a piece of sh—work. He walked away from his family when Cy was a kid, forcing his mom to work two jobs to make ends meet, to leave their house and live with his grandparents. He hasn't heard or seen from him since. Until the man falsely admits to killing Erin Mills—his best friend's sister. Cy has no idea why his father did it, and neither do the detectives working the case or the reporters who've been hounding him. He's wary. Jaded.
All three are scarred. Damaged, outside and in. Lucas wants it all, but doesn't think he's enough. Cy's not worthy of a woman like Hailey, tainted by his father's bad blood. And Hailey? The only commitment she's known is to her sport and all that's gotten her is loneliness and injury. What if they let her fall? Can her heart recover?
And most of all...with a murderer roaming Cutthroat, will they survive?
Being a child genius might have made Sam a doctor by twenty-two, but she's learned nothing about men. Her world is scalpels and scrubs, not silk and seduction. Sam is used to receiving attention for her brain, not her body, but when Mac and Hardin find out she needs tutoring between the sheets, they volunteer for the job. They're diligent in their task, ensuring she's an expert in pleasure... with them. Only them.
Mac knows he is nothing the beautiful doctor deserves. He works with his hands. He's rough around the edges, tattooed and older, but he wants her anyway. So does his best friend, Hardin. They've spent years searching for a woman they can claim together. One taste of Sam and it's not just passion they feel for their woman. It's protectiveness. Possession.
When they discover Sam might be targeted by a murderer on the loose, they won't let anything take her away. And their protective instinct reaches a new level when Hardin discovers he might just be related to the killer.
He might be the son of a movie star, but Shane Nickel's content living out of the spotlight. When he meets the stubborn detective, his protective instincts kick in. He should let her go, find a woman whose work doesn't require a gun and handcuffs (although he can think of some fun uses for the handcuffs) and not tasked with hunting down a murderer. His heart—and other parts of him—want Eve.
As a forest ranger, Finch Anderson spends more time in the wilderness than in town. That suits him just fine, until he meets Eve and everything changes. He wants her, wants everything he never thought he could have, but how can a felon and a feisty detective get along?
The men's doubts won't matter when new evidence in the Erin Mills case is discovered and the identity of the murderer is revealed. The only thing they'll have to worry about is keeping Eve alive because the killer won't be caught without a fight.

But can they? Do they really know the woman they've wed?
While they might strip her bare, she's still hiding plenty of secrets... secrets that might kill them all.
