Destitute, living in her car, this former stripper hits Suttontowne and lands a job as a waitress at Outlaws. It’s only temporary until she gets enough cash to run again. Staying in one place too long wasn’t safe. But when Ethan Fairchild finds her after she faints from hunger, she just can’t shake him. He’s solid and strong, caring and protective. But Lawson cannot and will not involve him in her problems. There can be no happily ever after for her in his arms.

Now he’s busy partnering with Chase Sutton on his Bait and Tackle business and still bartending for Outlaws. When he finds Lawson on the ground outside of Outlaw’s, he helps her and his sixth sense tells him that she’s in trouble. It isn’t until he sees the bruises on her, learns of her current destitute circumstances that he realizes what kind of trouble. He wants to help her, but his heart has different plans when it tumbles for her. Will she trust him and make a stand—with him or flee and break his heart?
