Sometimes life takes almost all you have to offer and when it’s least expected gives something back.
The moment Marcus ‘Mercury’ Ellison sees sweet and shy Lexi Parker he’s attracted to her. He's always been labeled the lethal one. A sniper with many kills to his name, Mercury feels he’s too dark and jaded for the likes of Lexi. She brings to mind kittens and rainbows. He’s more like rattlesnakes and thunderstorms.
Lexi Parker has spent five long years running from the past. She finally settles in Texas, but she isn't quite ready to let go of the past. Mercury’s sex appeal tempts her, but Lexi’s emotionally scarred and fights the sizzling attraction that burns between them. In order for her healing to begin, it’s going to take someone special, someone like Mercury. Lexi just has to stop fighting and open her heart to the possibilities.
It’s a good thing Mercury never walks away from a challenge. When Lexi’s flower shop is vandalized, he steps up to offer help and protection. Given another opportunity to laugh and love, Lexi must come to terms with her past once and for all if she has any hope for a future with a happy ending.
