Retired Army Staff Sergeant Lee Winters is trying hard to adjust to civilian life. She was released from duty after a bomb in Ramadi injured her and killed her troops, the only people she ever considered her family. Living day-to-day with the knowledge that she was the only one left alive, she hits rock bottom, and an old army buddy persuades her into taking a bodyguard job.

Jolene West is injured in an attack meant to get her famous sister’s attention. She resents her sister Tory’s life and plans to move away once she’s healed. In the meantime, Tory has hired a bodyguard to protect Jolene from further attacks, which is just one more thing she resents. What she hadn’t planned on was an undeniable attraction to the woman protecting her body.

Both women will try to fight their growing attraction for each other until one of them gives in or dies.

Brady Clark is a licensed physical therapist. She’s trying to recover from the death of her only remaining family member and lives a life that is orderly and controlled, refusing to allow anyone or anything to upset that balance.

Skylar Preston likes to live on the edge, whether that means fast bikes or fast women. She depends on no one but herself because life has taught her one thing: no one hangs around long enough to matter. Before she can be released from the hospital after a serious motorcycle accident, she has to meet with one of the physical therapists. She’s doesn’t like depending on others, which makes Brady Clark’s role in her life obtrusive and annoying.

They’re both fighting demons, old and new. A relationship could be disastrous, but if they can listen to their hearts, it just might be worth the risk.

* more than 150$ is a direct donation from a supporter of the Rainbow Awards who isn't submitting; while some authors were more than generous, arriving to donate 5 times the suggested amount, being the submission fee a non mandatory and voluntary direct donation, we were struggling to raise the same amount as last year and there is who decided to cover part of it. I thank you for all you are doing, and if you wish to donate to the above links, please drop me a note with your donation and I will update the total.
