Jenny Dawson moved to Nashville to write music, not get famous. But when her latest record goes double platinum, Jenny’s suddenly one of the town’s biggest stars—and the center of a tabloid scandal connecting her with a pop star she’s barely even met. With paparazzi tracking her every move, Jenny flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to write her next album. The only hiccup is the unexpected presence of a brooding young caretaker named Noah, whose foul mouth and snap judgments lead to constant bickering—and serious heat.
Noah really should tell Jenny that he’s Preston Noah Maxwell Walcott, the owner of the estate where the feisty country singer has made her spoiled self at home. But the charade gives Noah a much-needed break from his own troubles, and before long, their verbal sparring is indistinguishable from foreplay. But as sizzling nights give way to quiet pillow talk, Noah begins to realize that Jenny’s almost as complicated as he is. To fit into each other’s lives, they’ll need the courage to face their problems together—before the outside world catches up to them.
Smolders; smoldered; smoldering
1.: To burn slowly without flames but usually with smoke
a.: to feel a strong emotion but keep it hidden
b.: to be felt strongly by someone without being directly shown or expressed
Some connections are so intense, so deep that they span years. Starting with nothing more than a casual conversation, a look in the eye, a touch –but the point is they start. They smolder with a quiet intensity that eventually leads to combustion.
Taylor Roberts had been in love with her brother’s best friend for as long as she could remember. It was a love left burning in her heart–pointless, because it was love never returned.
Noah “Renegade” Hudson had life knock him down more than once. As Sergeant of Arms of the Devil Chasers, he’s known for not letting people get too close. The day he met Taylor, a change ignited within him, and he wanted to reach out and claim her. She was innocent and untouched though, so he made himself walked away.
When both Taylor and Renegade’s lives are rocked by tragedy, can they find comfort in each other’s arms? Or will old wounds and scars tear them apart forever?
In hearts where pain, love, and passion lie smoldering… will anything survive the blast when the fire sparks?
A MAN CONTROLLED BY HIS DESIRES . . .
Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London’s most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she’s spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk . . .
A WOMAN HAUNTED BY HER PAST . . .
Caire makes a simple offer-in return for Temperance’s help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London’s high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control-one that may well destroy them both.
