Book Description:

A fallen boxer.

A woman with a broken dream.

A competition…


He makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting...
Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life.

He's the star of the dangerous Underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong--but he is stronger. And now it's my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he's most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?


His head angles to the sound, only one dimple showing with a sexy smile as he faces us. A frisson of nervous energy passes through me, not because he’s extremely gorgeous from this perfect view—because he is, he definitely is, oh shit, he really is—but because he’s looking straight at me.
One eyebrow cocks, and there’s a glimmer of amusement in his entrancing blue eyes. Also something…warm in his gaze. Like he thinks I’m the one who shouted. Oh, shit.
He winks at me, and I’m stunned that he keeps hold of my gaze, his smile slowly fading. Suddenly it morphs into one that’s unbearably intimate.

My blood simmers.

My sex clenches tight, and I hate that he seems to know it.

I can see he thinks he’s the ultimate creation of God, and he seems to think every woman here is his Eve, created out of his ribcage for him to enjoy. I’m both aroused and infuriated and this is the most confusing feeling I’ve ever had in my life. His lips curl then, and he turns when his opponent is announced with the words, “Kirk Dirkwood, “The Hammer,” here for all of you tonight!”
“You little slut, Mel!” I cry when I can recover, shoving her playfully. “Why did you have to scream like that? He thinks I’m the nutcase now.”

“Ohmigod, he did not just wink at you,” Melanie says, stunned.

Oh my god, he had. Hadn’t he? He did.
