His voice could seduce the clothes off a lady…

Zach Brogan was sexier than sin, a globe-trotting wild man whose bad-boy smile beckoned Dara Colbourne to taste thrills only he could deliver! He’d always sensed the secret wildness that burned inside his childhood pal, had tempted her into trouble more than once, but now he wanted the woman she’d become to feel his fire. Could a man who chased danger for a living prove she’d be his greatest adventure?

Donna Kauffman’s heroes like dancing on the edge and women who don’t make it easy, but no one sizzles hotter than guys who act bad to the bone but are oh -so good! His grin dared her to risk everything, but would her reckless rebel be there to catch her when she took the plunge?

“This is hopeless, Zach,” Dara said. “We weren’t compatible as kids, and we’re even more incompatible now. You leap before you look, and most of the time I don’t even make it to the edge.”

“You’re wrong. The reason we didn’t get along as kids was because we were too much alike. You’re still one of the bravest people I know.”

“You know what I’m saying, Zach,” she persisted. “You keep thinking of me the way I was back then. I’m not that person anymore. You’re still impulsive, I’m not. You’re–”

“Getting tired of this line of discussion.” He sighed and pulled her closer. “Yes, you’ve changed. So have I, even if you don’t see it. I don’t know why you climbed into the castle and pulled up the drawbridge behind you, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t spend time together. Who knows, maybe we’ll find out there’s something more going on here than hormones with a bad case of spring fever.” He tilted her chin up. “Or is that what you’re afraid of?”
