Payback is sweeter when the heart is involved.
Former Marine Trisha Jennings has a bright future—law school, a job in her father’s firm, and an engagement to a junior partner…there’s just one problem. Those are her father’s dreams, not hers. She doesn’t want to be a lawyer or a wife. So when her friend’s fiancé tosses her a lifeline in the form of a fake engagement to his twin—her former CO—she grabs on with both hands. After all, the captain’s strong and immovable, the perfect deterrent against her controlling father. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he’s hot and she’s had a thing for him for years.
Former Marine Captain Brett Brennan loves a good practical joke, until the boot is on the other foot and he finds himself in a fake engagement to his sexy, former corporal. Realizing she is struggling to come to terms with an incident from their last deployment, and knowing his ranch is a great place to heal, he uses their fake engagement to help. After all, he’d always have his men’s six.
But Trisha is no longer a corporal under his command and out of uniform, she is all woman. He wasn’t expecting the strong attraction to the beauty or the fierce desire to help and protect her. Soon, it has him forgetting their prank engagement is just for show. Who knew payback could be so sweet?
