Gutsy, curvy, witty, and independent, Cadence Miller had built her life on her ability to make the best of a bad situation. So, when her latest lemon of a boss dumped her in the middle of nowhere after she refused his advances, and she found herself stranded with the reserved and handsome Xander Cross, Cadence decided to make lemonade. Maybe if she played her cards right, she’d be making more than that too.
Xander Cross fled LA after a failed music career, determined to build a life on his terms, without anyone else. He still enjoyed his weekend dalliances, but he’d vowed never to let a woman in again, until he didn’t have a choice. When he found her, Cadence was a crumpled heap on the side of the road, but when she fixed her eyes on him for the first time, his resolve melted. Cadence wasn’t the kind of girl who was built for fun, she was built for keeps.
Scared to hold on, but too stubborn to let go.
