Captain Matt Peterson prides himself on being able to handle anything...until he winds up as the guardian of his baby niece, Lulu. Two years and six nannies later, his well-ordered existence is in chaos. Still, he’s all Lulu has. Except, well...there is an aunt...

Darcy Butler has spent the last three years in prison for beating up her abusive brother-in-law. Her only regret is that she didn’t hurt him worse and stop him from killing her sister in a drunken car crash six months later. But now, Darcy just wants to rebuild her life. Starting with finding her sister’s child.

But Matt doesn't want an ex-con with a record for violence anywhere near Lulu. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to keep away from Darcy, himself. Despite their differences, their chemistry is combustible...and the sex is incredible! Still, it can’t possibly last. Can it?


Turmoil, compassion and lust are just a few of the exciting things Nina Croft stirs up in the latest book from her Cutting Loose Series! The characters we’ve met previously in this series have been really fun with intriguing back stories, and this one is no different! She understandably has a major chip on her shoulder, and he’s so uptight he might never even give her a chance … but all bets are off when she reaches out and gives him the info he needs to open his eyes and let her be in her niece’s life! A really great read … it’s feisty yet has a warm, gentle side as well … it’s steamy, yet endearing at the same time … and best of all, it’ll steal your heart from start to finish!

Darcy Butler is fresh out of a three year prison sentence for pounding on her abusive brother-in-law. She only wishes she had done more permanent damage that would have stopped him from killing her sister in a drunk-driving accident a few months later and leaving her niece an orphan! She promised her sister she’d make sure LuLu was okay if anything ever happened to her, and she’s trying to do just that … only hear guardian’s lawyer keeps putting up road blocks!

Army Captain, Matt Peterson has been juggling a lot for the last two years since he became the only family little LuLu had left and turned his world upside down to take her in. He knows her aunt has been trying to see her, but he doesn’t want an ex-con with a record of violence anywhere near her, so he’s been letting his lawyer handle it. When Darcy tracks him down and sets him straight on exactly what happened with his brother, he’s left with no other option than to let her at least see their niece. As he watches her fall under adorable LuLu’s spell, he can’t help but feel attracted to the woman she actually is, and all that she’s dealt with to be the person she is today!
