Lilly Corn can't be fooled by that old penny-behind-your-eartrick. She's been bamboozled by a man too many times. Voodoo, shaman tricks, and omens are make-believe as far as Lilly is concerned and the mention of folklore can strike a flame in her eyes. When sexy, sweet Hudson McGee shows up on Lilly's doorstep looking for a place to camp for a few days, she's
not too pleased with the idea. She's not about to let this year's shyster fool her with his crazy schemes. What she doesn't know is that Hudson has been infected with Dahlonegaitis or yellow blood caused by an incurable case of chronic gold fever. Nothing will daunt Hudson from his prospecting goals, not legend, nor mountain, or thieves, and especially not a woman! Will Hudson infect Lilly with gold fever or will she infect Hudson with her charms? Can Hudson sway Lilly into believing in things she can't see or touch?

But when she sees a news report that The Program, a US military base, is seeking women to be matches for their genetically enhanced soldiers, she sees her opportunity.

Rowan Blacker is the only soldier of his cohort to request a breed match. He’s the newest soldier on campus and, thanks to his genetic defect, he feels like an outcast. Matching and breeding with a woman will help him fit in with the team. Unfortunately Rowan’s match is nothing like the sexy, fun woman he was hoping to romance. The woman they claim is his perfect DNA match is a scared shell of a woman carrying a trunkful of emotional baggage. Against their better judgment, they move in together and as Jill shakes off the shackles of abuse, their attraction ignites.
All the military training in the world won’t help him knock down her walls.
Years ago a terrifying attack left Kenzie McLaughlin trusting only a few men in her insular life on Whidbey Island—her brothers and her father. But when a sexy Navy guy who waltzes into the family pub doesn’t hesitate to makes his interest known, no amount of mental red flags are enough to keep her from being tempted to dip a toe back into the dating pool.
Twice burned in the past, Brett Craven has sworn off serious relationships, at least while he’s still in the Navy. A gorgeous redhead with a fiery wit and wariness of men, though, has blown his well-reasoned strategy out of the water.
There’s no denying the attraction between the two, but Kenzie teeters on a tightrope anchored on one end by hope, the other by caution. Because if she lets her guard down long enough to fall for Brett, it could leave her vulnerable to the one man who’s been left free to prey upon her fear.
Warning: This book contains a sexy Navy Chief and a gun-shy redhead. Make-out sex. Full-on sex. Whisky tasting. And a douchebag villain who can’t forget the one who got away.
