Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Standalone, Biker
For as long as Scarlett can remember, Nelson Steel is the constant in her life. He’s her best friend, her confidant, her secret. He dries her tears with rough, stained hands. Teaches her to drive. Looks after her as she flirts with dating and even shows her how to kiss.
She never tells anyone about the older boy next door because he depends on her, too. Every time his dad beats him up, she takes care of him. When he’s lonely, she keeps him company.
Her dysfunctional family, for all their problems, only helps her see what she truly wants in life. And, that’s Nelson.
Until the worst night of her life when she hears the arguing, the gunshots, and loses him.
She never imagines him coming home ten years later. But there he is, waiting for her on the other side of the fence.
And, sexier than ever.
There’re only three things Nelson cares about, his motorcycle, Steel Mechanics, and Scarlett. One gives him freedom, the other income, and…well, Scarlett, she’s the sunshine in his life. He’s thought about her every second of every day for ten long years.
But his path back to her is filled with violence, and he has a massive target on his back. The only crime he’s guilty of is loving Scarlett, and he’ll fight everyone in Missoula if it means having another chance with her.
EXCLUSIVE RELEASE EXCERPT
“Still sneaking around, fox?” His chest pounded.
She slowly pivoted. Her head turned left to right, sweeping the area. She couldn’t see him in the shadows by the tire rack.
He stepped out under the glow of the floodlight. Her gasp traveled the empty space between them. Every muscle in his body tensed at the sight of her. He tossed his smoke to the side.
That beautiful red hair. He had known with everything inside of him, she would be wearing it long and full. Gray eyes stared at him, studying his face. He couldn’t help looking down and seeing the woman the girl had turned into, and what he found was perfection.
The added curves on such a petite body rocked him back a step. Her breasts that would’ve barely filled his palm years ago would now overflow his hand. He gazed lower. The urge to ask her to turn around left him breathing heavily at the changes in her.
It was Scarlett, but a Scarlett he was seeing for the first time.
“Nelson?” she said, drawing out his name.
His balls constricted in pleasure. All that sweetness nobody ever gave him, but her.
“I heard…” She blew out her breath. “I heard you were home. I didn’t know…I didn’t know if you’d come back here.”
Pain gripped him. She believed the rumors floating around about him.
“You better tell your friends and neighbors I’m back.” He pulled the pack of cigarettes from his pocket and lit another smoke. “Maybe you can set up a Neighborhood Watch. You’re good at sneaking around.”
She recoiled frowning. “You’ve changed.”
He exhaled harshly. “That’ll happen when you spend ten years in prison.”
“Are you okay?” She stepped forward.
His body hardened. He flicked his cigarette out into the gravel, unable to hold it any longer because his hands shook. She was too close. He couldn’t allow her to get near him, touch him, care about him.
She stopped two feet away from him. Her gaze followed the lit coal burning on the rocks. “You’re not happy to see me?” she whispered.
She acted as if he’d personally hurt her, that ten years shouldn’t have changed him. That she could sneak on the property and be pissed at him for how he’d turned out.
“Go home,” he whispered back.
“I…” She tilted her head. “Is there anything you need?”
He needed a woman. He needed her.
