Genre: Romantic Suspense
She was looking for adventure.
Marnie Wright has seen more than her fair share of testosterone. Growing up with four overly protective brothers was one thing. Now a mountain man named Jake Dolan has invaded a peaceful day of soul-searching at her grandmother's secluded cabin. Sure, she was trespassing on his private property, but did he have to pull a gun on her? There's more to this longhaired soldier of fortune who calls himself the Tin Man, but she's not sure she wants to stick around to find out what. Then he stashes her in his secret lair--an underground techno-fantasy complete with security monitors and an arsenal--and Marnie realizes the guy is military, top secret military.
He's also got the most beautiful mouth she's ever seen.
He could get her killed.
Marnie decides to go to her grandmother’s cabin to rethink her life, which is where she runs into Jake, who starts off as quite hostile, and life really does take a turn. It was hilarious how Marnie’s dog Duchess wouldn’t leave Jake alone;
“And her dog leaned against a very large masculine thigh, and heaved a sigh.
“What the hell is this animal doing?”
Marnie’s feet scuffed up damp leaves as she strolled away without looking back. “She likes you.” She had to raise her voice to be heard as she put some distance between them.
“Damn it, I told you to-stop that, dog!- take your dog.”
“Oh, Duchess goes exactly where she wants. Never have been able to make her come when she wants to stay.” She glanced over her shoulder. Duchess was looking up at him as if he were God’s gift.”
