New club owner Francesca “Maxie” Maxwell must use her feminine wiles to escape and elude tenacious bounty hunter, Austin Taggart, who’s tough, streetwise, and hot on her tail. Can she convince the sexy as sin, bounty hunter that she’s an innocent victim enduring a false arrest charge to save her fledgling club and her life savings? Spending days and nights handcuffed to the irresistible Austin makes her think of other uses for the cuffs—and that perhaps she’d like to bind herself to him for a life sentence. Austin Taggart knew the moment he saw Maxie’s picture, she would be trouble with a capital T. She looks just as delectable and just as ditzy as the skip who had duped him out of bringing her back—that’s right; he was a major sucker for blondes. He’d lost his bounty and she’d broken his heart. Better to stay away from gorgeous blondes who had a way of wrapping him around their little fingers. But, hey, a guy needs to eat and this week, she was his meal ticket.
