Stephanie Irene Nolan, Sin, doesn’t think she’s very pretty. As an ex-Marine, two tours in Iraq have left her scarred and a little battered. An adrenaline junkie hiding out in small town Colorado, she prides herself in being just as strong, just as fast, and a hell of a lot brighter than any man. That is until she meets her match in the annual Bucket Brigade run.
Brandon Long, ex-pudge and computer nerd, has been in love with Sin longer than she could ever guess. A man with a purpose, he sets out to win the race, then win her heart.
What neither of them knows is that while they’re dancing the delicate dance of courtship and love, someone other than Cupid has them in his crosshairs. Danger, humor, and some really hot sex set the sheets and the boarding house on fire in this tale of love lost, love found, and death defied.
