Liza’s cousin Sidra Campbell lives by a hump-him-and-dump-him rule. No love, no messy emotional strings, means no chance of losing control – again. Unfortunately for her, two men aren’t making it easy. One invokes the haunting nightmare of a past she’s fought hard to be a survivor and not a victim. And another so tempting, so persuasive, she reinforces the wall around her heart and dons her mask to keep the behemoth out.
Xavier Stone has suffered loss after loss. And in the threat of losing once again, he’s barely hanging on. There’s one woman who creates a spark of interest so strong he can’t seem to keep his hands to himself. She hates him. At least, that’s what the mask of insults and indifference she wears wants him to believe, but her kiss tells another story. Xavier has lost too much. She may not be happy about it and can run all she wants, but Xavier’s done losing.
