Just as their attraction heats up, Ava uncovers a bombshell of blackmail, deadly deceptions, and international intrigue that will all but destroy India Wright. With ominous threats closing in after the story leaks, whom can Ava trust with her explosive information, her heart, and her life?--p. [4] cover.

He might be rough around the edges, but Trent is a hardworking man who built his successful trucking firm from humble beginnings. Dominique can't ignore the sparks between them--but dating a man so soon after his fiance?e betrayed him would be breaking another basic rule: Don't trust a man on the rebound. Even so, things are heating up fast and--even though she might get burned--Dominique is ready to risk it all. In the game of love, rules are made to be broken..."--P. [4] of cover.
