Recovering from a deadly copter crash, the former SEAL will do whatever it takes to stake his claim and protect his free-spirited woman.
Recovering from a deadly helicopter crash, Rockford "RJ" James is ready to start his new life outside the teams, but his mending vertebrae prevents him from giving one hundred and ten percent to his agent status at his military buddy's Texas security and investigation company. It also messes with his personal life, which is too bad because the sister of his buddy's girlfriend sparks more than his interest.
Free spirited artist/cake decorator, Lori Champion loves traveling around the world to compete in bake-offs. But when her twin hangs up her competition apron to put down roots in Harland County to deal with impending blindness, Lori follows, along with a boatload of guilt that she wasn't the twin who'd inherited the disease. Leaving Connecticut—the home of her failed relationships—behind and moving to Texas has its perks…like helping the new SEAL in town settle in.
In each other's arms, they find respite from the guilt they carry and enjoy a no-strings fling. But when someone from Lori's past arrives in town and begins to stalk her, RJ realizes his feelings for the beauty run a lot deeper than sexual gratification. The former SEAL will do whatever it takes to stake his claim and protect his free-spirited woman.
