When Alyssa Peterson set off on a road trip for a job interview, she didn't count on breaking down on a lonely stretch of Montana highway. And she really didn't count on running into Mike Galway, the man who'd taken her virginity and her heart in high school, and then walked away without a backwards glance. The old attraction is stronger than ever, but Mike's looking for something Alyssa isn't sure she can – or wants – to give. When things get out of hand with Mike's business partner, Alyssa has to decide whether she can trust Mike to keep her safe, or whether she should go home and forget all about the dark desires that The Mechanic awakened.
This story explores themes of bdsm and menage.
