Blake Strickland has a good life in Chicago. His first company sold for several million dollars, and he's on his way to repeating that with his second. But when his grandmother has a heart attack, the return to his home town of Fort Collins, Colorado is unavoidable and unwelcome. It's the place he'd fallen madly in love with an incredible woman--the same place Charlie ripped his heart right out of his chest.
Charlotte Brookfield put love behind her, or so she thought. Until he returned--to her town, in her bar, a thousand miles from his home. And looking sexy as hell with a chip on his shoulder so big, she knew, she was still his enemy.
Eight years apart has done nothing to ease their pain, and everything to ignite their passion. Can Blake build a firewall around his heart, or will Charlie leave an indelible imprint on his soul?
