Jackie Moore doesn't know why she let her coworkers drag her out to Club Crimson. She'd rather stay home with a book than meet strange men, no matter how hot they are. But all that changes when a disastrous night leads Jackie to a helpless, small creature who needs her, and a gruff, beautiful bouncer who is determined to take care of them both.
Max Chase is used to blowing off humans. The snobbish lion shifter thinks they're fickle, and would rather die alone than have less than full commitment from a mate. But when he meets a shy, curvy IT worker who needs his help, he feels his lion roar inside him. He wants her, forever, and will do anything to protect her. Now if only she can accept a possessive streak a mile wide.
The closer Jackie gets to Max, the more she sees warmth and softness behind a very hard man. But searing, dominant kisses can't disguise the fact that Max is hiding something. Something happening late at night, at Club Crimson, that may come back to literally bite them if they aren't careful.
Author's note: You don't need to read any of my other books to read Max! It's a standalone romance with a safe, happy ending and NO cheating!
