Cribbed from On a Book Bender–It’s that time again — Tuesday! — which means [we] give you shirtless men and you try to steal them away from [us]. (Cowboyscowboyscowboys.) Top Off Tuesdays was started by Felicia, Christi and [Amanda]. It is where [ALL OF US] share the book covers that make us swoon.

Problem is, he’s so blindsided by his attraction to her he can’t think straight. Zeke tries to stay all business, no complications—but that game plan is sabotaged the second Carlin gets under his skin. And when her terrifying past follows her to the ranch, Carlin faces a heartbreaking choice: run away from the man she loves, or put him in the crosshairs of a madman.
