Sometimes the last thing you want is exactly what you need
Six years after trading in his combat gear for hospital scrubs, Luke Rafferty still hasn't found what he's been searching for: a normal life. At his job, Luke is faced with things just as heartbreaking as those on the battlefield, none more so than the abused children brought in by a pretty red-headed social worker.
For Devon Manning, being a social worker is a rewarding job, but also a constant reminder of her own troubled youth.
A DESIRE TO HEAL
When Luke meets Devon, he thinks he might have found what he's been looking for, but in order to get the life he wants, Luke has to break through
emotional barriers and make her realize that his healing touch might be
just the complication her life needs
Luke just shrugged. "Hey, you ought to hear some of the foreign-body stories I could tell you. And being in a college town? It's even worse."
Her brow creased. Leery, she repeated, "Foreign bodies?"
He grinned. "You probably don't want to know. People can do very, very bizarre things and they don't even have the excuse of being a kid."
That sobering thought had the smile on her face dying. A hand touched her lightly on the shoulder, a quick, innocuous touch. She looked at Luke to find him studying her. "Where did you go?"
"I think you could use a few more of the laughing minutes."
He lifted his hand, and
"I don't suppose you'd take your hair down, would you?" Luke asked, a little out of the blue.
She blinked, tipped back her head to see his face a little better. "Take it down?"
"Yeah." He continued to rub the curl back and forth between his fingers as he lifted his gaze to hers. His eyes were heavy- lidded, giving him a sleepy, sexy look that had her wanting to lean in and kiss him.
