Brenna is desparately in love with her stepbrother, Jase. On Jase's birthday she finally makes her move, only to be rejected. When her stepfather leaves her in an impossible situation Brenna must face her stepbrother's anger or face the chance of his losing his family ranch.
Hot as ever for Lora Leigh, but the novella was way to short and a little confusing. I can definitely see this moving into a full novel if she ever decides to revise the story.
Brenna’s love for Jase has grown from a crush to a soul-searing need, a painful hunger…and an unrequited ache, because the savagely sexy Texan doesn’t feel the same. A bequest and stipulation in his father’s will have hardened Jase, it seems. Now she must endure three months of living under his roof. Three torturous, tension-filled months and Brenna will have fulfilled the stipulation; will be free to attempt to regain the heart lost to Jase so long ago.
Since the age of eighteen, Jase has protected Brenna—from himself, as much as anyone else. Living with her proves too rousing even for his iron will. He’ll claim what’s his, take Brenna in ways he’d previously only dreamed, sink so deeply inside her luscious body he’ll never find his way out. And be damned if he’ll let her go.
A scorching Texas summer can’t compete with blazing lust as Brenna gives in, gives over, gives all that she is to Jase, to the only man she’s every loved…to the one.
