I’d never leave a mark on her. Not intentionally. But the past has marked us both…
She’s the only woman I’ve ever wanted.
Grace. Sweet curves that I long to touch, a soft, gentle spirit that soothes my soul.
Of course, it’s not that simple.
She’s my brother’s best friend—and I was raised by a man who thinks every problem can be solved with his fists.
I’ve sworn not to follow his example, but does that matter? Grace deserves better than that. Better than me. Especially after the hell she’s been through.
I try to stay away, but all the good intentions in the world aren’t enough. She calls to me like a song in my blood, one I can’t resist.
Surrendering is better than I dreamed…until I blow it. And then the past rears its ugly head, and I have one shot to save Grace from her demons—and conquer my own.
