John “Trigger” Dixon returned to his small hometown in rural Mississippi as a favor to an old high school friend. It was meant to be a quick trip, with a short visit to his parents and an afternoon spent spoiling his two nephews. He should have known his vacation wouldn’t go as planned. The rebel in him always got in the way.
Devyn Wilde had lived up to her surname according to her friends—at least by reputation. She’d never let it bother her before, but she’d finally had enough after she was arrested for her brother’s murder. How could anyone believe that she would forsake her family? In the south, family comes before anyone or anything.
Trigger had last seen Devyn right before he’d joined the Red Starr Hostage Rescue Team, both of them agreeing to end their casual relationship. After all, it had been a temporary diversion—friends with benefits. He hadn’t expected to find her out on bail, secretly investigating her brother’s mysterious murder. Their sweet passion returns full force, but keeping an old promise might just cost him his life.
