WARNING: Recommended for adult readers (18+) only! Mature themes, strong language, and sexual content...

LOTS of sexual content. Patrick is a naughty boy until he meets Elaine. So there's the warning--if you keep reading, have fun! (It's meant to be fun. *wink*)

There's a new guy in town...

"Patrick Knight, single, retired Guard-turned private investigator. I was a closer. A deal maker. I looked clients in the eye and told them I’d get their shit done. And I did..."

Patrick doesn't do "nice."
At least, not anymore.

After his fiance cheats, he follows up with a one-night stand and a disastrous office hook-up. His business partner (Derek Alexander) sends him to the desert to get his head straight--and clean up the mess.

While there, Patrick meets Elaine, and blistering sparks fly, but she's not looking for any guy. Or a long-distance relationship.

Patrick's ready to do anything to keep her, but just when it seems he’s changed her mind, the skeletons from his past life start coming back.

Standalone, M/F, HEA
