Ivy’s marriage went seriously sideways three years ago and she still hasn’t recovered. She’s done with men, except when it comes to sex. She walks into Body Heat determined to score some smoking hot, no-strings-attached fun. Combat veteran Max is just as damaged as Ivy. The millionaire adrenaline junkie has discovered a certain measure of peace when he’s skydiving, rock climbing, or tearing around on his motorcycle. His visit to Body Heat is just one more attempt to quiet the chaos in his head. Scorching encounters make it hard to walk away -- but staying together will take far more than heat. Ivy’s razor-sharp boundaries aren’t readily softened, nor Max’s demons easily tamed. When the past threatens their growing bond, will they stand together or be torn apart? Body Heat is a 40,000-word standalone steamy romance. No cliffhangers, no cheating. Just lots of hot encounters and a guaranteed happily-ever-after.
