Brenda Jackson

St. Martin's Paperbacks


Attorney Mackenzie "Mac" Standfield swore off love when her heart was shattered into a million pieces. But there's one man who has managed to tempt her beyond reason-rodeo star Luke Madaris. Although five years have passed, Mac discovers when she runs into Luke again that the sexual tension is just as charged as ever...

When Luke gets injured in a rodeo, he knows the only place where he can recuperate-without being smothered by his worried family-is at Mac's place. After all, like Mac, he has no interest in any romantic entanglements....until being in such close quarters with Mac forces Luke to confront a desire he can no longer fight...

With each passing day, Mac and Luke come to realize that their smoldering attraction can be put out only if they surrender to it. But what Mac doesn't realize is that once you give yourself to a Madaris man, there's no turning back...
