By Lauren Marie   

Ian Deatherage’s past is a shadow. He’s doesn’t make friends easy, traveling from place to place on his motorcycle. But when it breaks down in Berne, Washington, he has twenty dollars in his pocket and needs to find a job to pay for the repairs.

Kris Marcus is the owner of The Scamp bar. She offers Ian a bouncer job. He works for a week and the relationship between he and Kris builds and boils over into nights of hot passion.

Ian and Kris dance around each other and she figures once his motorcycle is fixed that he’ll leave the area, and she wants to protect herself. Ian doesn’t know anything about committed relationships. After several weeks, Ian convinces Kris that he doesn’t want to leave. Will she let him stay or watch him go?
