Steamy romance and contemporary suspense collide in this compelling debut novel from Rya Stone.

Cassie Mitchum is interested in one thing and one thing only—closing a deal on the Lucas property. Until she sets eyes on Jason Lucas. He’s bad news, but he looks damn good doing it. She’s never been one for tattooed roughnecks, but she’s willing to make an exception, especially since he won’t look at her lease offer unless she agrees to a date with him.

Jason Lucas needs Cassie Mitchum to stay the hell off his land. There’s more happening than she needs to be aware of—or mixed up in. With that feisty attitude and those tight jeans...he can’t get her out of his head. Too bad being close to her would put her on the radar of the most dangerous person Jason has ever known.

Received in exchange for a honest review.

I really liked this book. I liked how there was that mystery about the Lucas brothers and what was going on at the house. How they were rough on the outside but really were sweet marshmallows. Don’t get me wrong Jason and his brother weren’t all cuddly and mu ...more

Jase doesn't ask for things, the man demands them, "he planted both hands on her desk, pinning her tight. “Tonight,” he whispered into her ear. “My place.

This is a fast-paced read with loads of drama. Cassie and Jase both have issues of their own but the chemistry between them is steamy.

About the author

Rya Stone

When Rya Stone isn’t plotting away on her keyboard, she stays busy chasing children, cows, and a chicken named Dracula. Born and raised in a ranching family on the Texas Gulf Coast, Rya always had a book in her hands—at the dinner table, in the bathtub, nestled among the branches of her favorite oak tree, and, of course, during math class. After earning a B.A. in English, she spent a decade in the oilfield before fleeing deep into the woods with her high school sweetheart and a mind full of inspiration for her Roughneck Romance series. She now writes her own stories full of protective, alpha heroes, smart, feisty heroines and sexy, suspenseful plots. Many of the themes in her debut series revolve around nature and land—both the deep ties many of her characters have to it and the greed and corruption that manifest when power and money are at stake. Rya loves to cook but hates raw onions. Her favorite food is…well, everything. And, despite her upbringing, prefers Doc Martens over cowboy boots.
