One phone call has the potential to change his life.
One woman has the power to erase his past.
One town can influence his future…
Silas Savage is back in the last place he ever wanted to be, Fury Colorado—the town where his parents died—the place where his life became a nightmare. Silas is certain the only thing worth his time in the tiny mountain town is his brother Ryker, that is until he meets sassy single mother, Grace Faraday. She’s the slice of heaven in his living hell. She’s nothing he deserves but everything he wants.
Grace Faraday understands what family is and what it isn’t. Giving up on love, she leaves Denver behind in search of a better life for her infant son in Fury. Grace is determined that she will never fall for a man again, but everything changes when Silas Savage blows into town like a storm and lands directly in her path. Silas is the exact opposite of what she wants, but he’s everything she needs.
Can the love of a good woman save Silas? Can he become the man Grace needs him to be?
She squirted a mountain of ketchup on her hash browns. It was almost as if she counted it as a vegetable.
Ana said I had a thing for peacocks—men who strutted their beautiful faces and accomplishments, but Silas wasn’t anything like those men. No, Silas wasn’t a peacock. He was a rooster and all I could think about after that kiss was he was the nicest cock I’d met in a long time.
‘He was a weirdo, and he got hands on, if you know what I mean. I socked him in the face, and then got out of there’…. She put the coffee pot on the table and lifted her right arm in a Rosie the Riveter pose. ‘I gave him the right, he deserved more than what my left could offer.’
Babies always smell so good. When do you think that stops because I know third graders smell like farts and boogers?
Despite living in a small town named Fury and carrying the last name of Savage, the big and burly Savage men are actually tender, loyal, and sweet teddy bears. I fell for Silas just as hard as I did for his big brother Ryker. This series has been extremely enjoyable and entertaining with an eventual and emotive storyline. However, Ms. Collins endearingly flawed yet lovable characters drive her stories, and her signature wit and deliciously steamy writing are in full bloom. I was smiling and laughing aloud as I read, and I may have also barked a few times as well due to the lascivious observations and amusing quips tossed around by Mona, the feisty senior living next door. Everyone should have a fun neighbor like Mona.
