Jada Stanley is starting over--freeing herself from her past with a set of carefully devised rules to spare her heart. Cane Alexander has his own set of guidelines, a plan to keep his life simple and free of complications. As their lives entwine, they realize one thing – there’s an exception to every rule.
The Connection (a novella):
He was the bad boy she didn't need. She was the exception to his rules. When Jada Stanley and Cane Alexander met, it was lust at first sight. As much as they fought it, it became so much more. Now that they've stopped fighting it and made their own rules, a little respite is needed. Las Vegas is the destination of choice. Despite what they say, not everything that happens in Vegas stays there.
There is no greater burden than a secret, and Kari Stanley has been carrying one alone for a long time. Max Quinn has secrets of his own. His good deeds aren't just a product of his southern upbringing; they're his atonement. As they struggle to find their path together, their secrets weigh heavier on them. Will they be able to trust one another with the truth, or will their secrets keep them apart forever?
