After his mother's funeral, ex-Army Ranger Drake Sullivan wants only to disappear and drown his sorrows in whiskey. Then he sees her: Mea Jones. An untamed, sexy-as-hell whirlwind of energy. A few years ago, she showed him the best-and hottest-night of his life, then walked away without a backward glance. But he's never stopped wanting more.
When it comes to guys, Mea has rules. One night. No dating. Whatever it takes to have control and keep it. With Drake, it's all heat and hurt and hunger, and pretty much the opposite of control. And that makes him dangerous as hell. Mea has her own demons, and falling in love-or even in lust-is strictly a no-go proposition. But she soon finds out Drake is incredibly single-minded when it comes to getting what he wants. And he's determined to be the exception to all her rules.
Reader advisory: The heroine's past deals with dark elements some readers may find disturbing. Recommended for mature audiences only.

Man of Honor by Diana Gardin
Both Drake and Mea where short changed in the parenting department.
Drake is returning home to the life he ran into the army to escape. His mother was the town drunk. He has people in this town who saw him through the rough times and helped him become the man he is today.
Mea was a sexy, one night stand Drake can’t forget. She’s never let anyone get close and keeps a carefully constructed barrier around her heart. When Drake starts to crack that barrier, Mea feels that the demons in her past are about to break free. The truth is the biggest demon of all is about to find a way back into her life.
Man of Honor touches on dark and desperate past circumstances including child abuse, rape and neglect.
Ultimately, Man of Honor is a story of two people with emotional scars that get a chance at love; if they are willing to break down the walls they’ve built around their hearts.
