Bridget Needham knows first-hand how a Special Ops man can shatter a girl’s heart. She’s still kicking herself over the one that got away… after watching him get down on one knee and propose to someone else.
After giving up her career to re-open her aunt’s struggling bed-and-breakfast inn, the last thing she needs is a sexy-as-sin SEAL showing up on her doorstep—especially when the secrets of her past still threaten to keep her from holding onto love.
Besides, this guy might have a Greek god bod and an impressively large power drill, but he also has a girlfriend two thousand miles away.
Former Navy SEAL Maddox Kerry hadn’t intentionally landed himself in Annapolis during Commissioning Week—the one week when it’s next-to-impossible to find a place to stay. So it’s mission-critical that he convince an adorably awkward innkeeper whose bed-and-breakfast is closed for renovations to let him stay.
And hey, if he finds himself hoping for a little more than the customary turn-down service, who can blame him?
Yet every time the chemistry sparks between them, she runs for cover.
Any other guy would shrug his shoulders and move on. But he can’t walk away when he senses the pain behind her prim exterior.
Because Maddox Kerry isn’t any other guy.
