Who knew a sweaty photo would be good for business? Now unwanted booty calls are coming in as fast as work orders, and Liam Chase needs to get away. Cue a job upstate. His new client is hot as hell, but he left NYC to escape attention, not to hook up with the city´s ´´Runaway Bride´´. With three disastrous relationships under her belt, it´s clear Claire Stevens´s judgment sucks. And what she´s feeling for America´s newest sex god? Obviously another hormone-fueled mistake. But when she accidentally fells a tree on his truck, leaving them stranded in a winter storm with a chocolate-snatching raccoon, there´s something to be said for body heat. Too bad neither can trust their explosive chemistry... Each book in the Chase Brothers series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

He gave Allen an appraising look and Allen could well imagine what was going through his head. How young he was for this job, was he even talking to the right person, what was he getting into?

Come on inside and Ill show you the maps. Boss thinks we should sell off that stand of trees that was damaged in the last storm.

Yielding to her means returning to a life he left behind. What Boston lawyer Gabe Adamiak should do: sell his grandparents´ farm ASAP and hurry back to his high-powered job and the Boston BDSM scene. What he wants to do: stay in the country long enough to figure out if the lovely farmer up the road is the Domme of his dreams. As if. What farmer Mari Lyndon should do: raise her goats and forget the kink scene. She´s too old for hook-ups and she´s given up on finding a submissive guy who´s longing for the rural life. What she wants to do: tie up her neighbors´ hot city-boy grandson and jump his bones. Then order him to make dinner and if he says yes—keep him. Potentially forever. As if. When a freak fire and an unexpected snow storm throw them together, they discover an explosive erotic connection. But what they share goes deeper than that. Gabe wants to belong to and serve the right woman as much as Mari wants to own and nurture the right man. But there´s no way this could grow into a permanent relationship, with Gabe only in the area temporarily—and neither wants to settle for anything less. When someone wants to scare Gabe back to the city (with a side-order of making Mari´s life miserable), Gabe makes arrangements for a longer stay just to spite their enemy. Thanks to Mari, he´s enjoying the country life he fled as a teenager. But can he give up his life in Boston forever? Mari doesn´t dare to ask. But when the truth about their tormenter comes out, Gabe has to make a decision that could change their lives for better or worse. Warning: Wacky relatives. Attack geese. A truck called Lou-Lou. And a smoking hot submissive guy willing to give his all to a kinky country cougar.
