she may be headstrong, but she lacks teenage naïveté. But there’s still something unpleasant about a grown man thinking about a teenage girl, “One day I’d marry her. Put a baby in her belly, then another. And another.” A sometimes-entertaining cowboy romance, undone by the age gap between its main characters.

Synopsis

A girl on the run with cargo to hide crosses the path of a Marine vet recluse. A SNAFU in the making...
TOO HOT TO HANDLE

What began as a grueling game of cat-n-mouse with Axel Campesino, has Margo on the move. In Never Say Never (prequel and included in Too Hot), she's on the run and does a body slam right into the arms of Rod McLemore, a recently discharged Marine. Outside of a crazy fling, there's zero room in her life for men. Handsome distractions are dangerous to her health.

From working a fence line and dealing with cattle, Rod is thrust back into the line of duty. And he promptly fails. He crosses the line in a no-brainer mission: go and get the girl. On no hands is he prepared for Margo or her smart-mouth, right hook, and cargo to hide. Not easy when his renegade brother Cade starts snooping around with his own secrets to shroud.

Together Margo and Rod are as volatile as flint and gunpowder. Bordering on taboo, their raw attraction is a recipe for disaster. Their stormy love affair forces them over the edge and out of their comfort zones as they wrangle in-laws, Mother Nature, and a twisted con artist. A regular trial by fire. Especially when the stakes are raised: Axel finds a new target to hold over Margo's head.

One by one, Axel weaves a web, ensnaring everyone Margo holds dear. But if there's one thing Rod teaches her is a battle worth fighting means taking a stand. They'll do whatever it takes to stay together. Even if it means they have to lie, steal, cheat.
Or kill.

Warning: red-hot scorcher, involving two Texas families, and a wedding we've all been waiting for: Brandon and Mia tie the knot! A true family saga, and we are one book away from the culmination of this series!
