Sex therapist Allie Shelby has the professional credentials, but she could use a bit more practical experience. Finding the right man to bring out her inner bad girl is tough in a population-challenged Texas town. So when sinfully sexy Cameron Wright rolls back into Shelbyville, Allie wastes no time inviting him to join her in some hands-on research.
But while her personal life heats up, Allie’s business is about to crash and burn. And she has to convince Cameron that she’s one princess who’s not looking for a prince to ride to her rescue.

“I’m not suggesting you become his son-in-law,” Allie said. “We’re just talking about sex.”
Words that would’ve thrilled Cameron a few years ago jabbed like an elbow to the chest instead. Dammit, he’d been to bed with plenty of women when no one wanted more than a good time between the sheets. But what had happened in Austin was supposed to stay in Austin.
Maybe he’d misunderstood. “No strings?”
“None. Other than I won’t see other men while I’m having sex with you. I expect the same courtesy. If you can’t promise that, we’ll pretend we never had this conversation.” Allie fiddled with the hem on her shorts, drawing his attention to the sticky Popsicle juice smearing the freckles on her thighs. “Look, I’m attracted to you, but I won’t be offended if you don’t feel the same.”
Her words cut in on his fantasy of licking up every drop of grape juice from her legs. Playing a sexy game of dot-to-dot with those pale freckles. Did they end at the tops of her thighs or would he find them even higher?
Another rush of blood surged below his belt. He was officially losing it. This day had started out a mess, and taking Allie up on her offer of a casual relationship would either make it better or more chaotic. Problem was, he wouldn’t know which until he said yes.
“Princess, attraction isn’t the problem.” Crap, he hadn’t meant to blurt that out. But truth was truth. Even wearing shapeless soccer shorts and beat-up tennis shoes, Allie was sexier than other women in tight skirts and high heels. The way she was dressed, her hair in a ponytail and smears of dirt on her face and legs, should’ve made her look like a twelve-year-old boy. What she looked like, though, was a woman who wouldn’t be afraid of being mussed up by steamy, sweaty sex.
Who would’ve thought the pretty little princess of Shelbyville had it in her?
Getting involved with her was a bad idea. His head knew it. But his dick and the rest of his body hadn’t received the message. Hell of a time for his internal voice mail to go on the blink.
“Great, then I’ll stop by your garage later this week and we can finish working out the sex thing.” She started to swing her legs off the end of the truck bed, but Cameron gripped one ankle to hold her in place.
How could she be so cool about this conversation when his skin was blistering? It was time to take back some control.
“I never said yes, princess.”
“But you didn’t say no.”
Hell, looked like she had his number.

Alexandra McKnight prefers a life of long workdays and short-term relationships, and she’s found it in Hope’s Crossing. A sous chef at the local ski resort, she’s just been offered her dream job at an exclusive new restaurant being built in town. But when it comes to designing the kitchen, Alex finds herself getting up close and personal with construction foreman Sam Delgado …
At first glance, Sam seems perfect for Alex. He’s big, tough, gorgeous – and only in town for a few weeks. But when Sam suddenly moves into a house down the road, Alex suspects that the devoted single father of a six-year-old boy wants more from her than she’s willing to give. Now it’s up to Sam to help Alex see that, no matter what happened in her past, together they can build something more meaningful in Hope’s Crossing.
