He sends her to a doctor to help her discover her problem, the incomparable Dillon Ramsey, MD, who learns instantly that Charity is definitely not the problem.  Part of the examination and “treatment” is showing her how to pleasure herself, thus opening the door to Charity’s sensual awakening.
He also realizes that Miss Blythe has gotten under his skin, because after she leaves his office, he can’t stop thinking about her.  A woman like Charity might even cause him to end his self imposed exile from the possibility of true love.

Security expert and former Texas Ranger, Josiah “Cut” Cutler made that perfectly clear when he had turned her away because she was too young to handle his passion. Now, after seven long years of self-imposed exile, it’s time to get him out of her system…or into her bed.

Be careful what you wish for… Coming home for a family wedding, Emie finds Cut waiting for her—willing and more than ready. She didn’t bargain on all the old feelings crashing down on her the minute he touches her. Nor did she expect her hard-won courage to melt away quicker than ice cream on hot asphalt at the sound of his sexy voice.
