Disarmed & Dangerous Book One
Flynn’s scars are not just skin deep. Will Liberty’s damaged soul overcome her fear of rejection in order to save him?
Severely scarred during a disastrous mission, ex special forces Flynn Swann is home after three years of avoidance. By his own admission, he’s no good with women and the last thing he expects or wants is the attention of a curvy little brunette, who’s just passing through.
With apparently no fear or revulsion of his scarred face, the boisterous woman bounds into his life and destroys all hope of a quiet visit. It is obvious to literally everyone that she wants him—all of him. Worse still, despite her atrocious taste in fashion and Stetsons, she appears to have won the hearts of the entire town.
Scientist Liberty Sophia Glennon is on a mission to find a man before she has to return to the loneliness of the New Zealand outback where she has already spent eighteen lonely months doing research. (continued...)
(...continued) A ticking hormone bomb, Liberty feels time is running away with her. Outwardly she is a bouncing ball of over-confidence, but inside she is still a frightened little girl with horrific memories of her childhood and a desperate need to be liked.
Completely unfazed by his external scars, her seduction of Flynn is not so difficult, but follow-through proves painful as Liberty realizes Flynn’s wounds run further than just skin deep.
With apparently nothing in common but their passionate attraction, how will these two damaged souls deal with each other’s fear of rejection?

“Liberty, have you met Flynn?” Kate stepped forward to introduce him as he entered the large, cool kitchen.
The bubbly brunette from Toe Tappers stepped forward, her curvaceous little body decked out in a fluorescent pink skirt capable of burning his retinas and a strappy black T-shirt that clung in desperation to her rounded breasts. A huge smile stretched wide, flashing even white teeth, as she reached her hand out in greeting. Mean-minded, he deliberately turned his face straight on to her, gave a wide vicious smile, and narrowed his eyes to gauge the full impact his damaged features would have. He braced himself to witness the familiar revulsion, frustrated to find himself holding his breath, a smile painted on while he waited for her reaction.
He watched her liquid violet eyes open wide, and as expected, her beautiful smile froze in place and a small gasp emitted from her soft lips. Disappointment curled in his belly, surprising him. He’d never expected anything other than a shocked reaction, but for some reason, he’d held out a vague hope she might be different. It appeared she was just like all the others with her wide eyes and her shiny pink lips parted in shock.
What he never anticipated was the immediate recovery whipping her expression from quick surprise to curiosity. Empathy filled those stunning eyes as she continued forward. His breath lodged solid in his chest as she placed herself directly in his pathway.
Instead of offering her hand to shake his, she stretched hers out and almost stroked his face with her fingers before his astonished system snapped into action and he snatched her hand away, grabbing her wrist in a vise-like grip, turning her skin white.
“What the fuck are you doing?” Satisfied with the sharp, surprised squeak in response to his aggressive growl, she confused him when she made no attempt to withdraw.
Shock flashed through the deep violet pools, pupils dilated, her thick black lashes fluttered, but as she continued to stare, he could detect no revulsion, just inquisitiveness.
“I’m sorry…” but she didn’t seem it. Her initial surprise at his touch had disappeared without trace. There was no embarrassed flush to her fair skin, no skimming her eyes away. She returned his stare with a boldness that threatened to make him run as her gaze scanned his face and she leaned in closer.
He stepped back, flicked a panicked glance at Kate, whose cool, clear gaze seemed to sweep over them both with a calm observation and a small intrigued smile. The woman was Kate’s friend; he wasn’t likely to get any help from that quarter.
His heart lurched painfully in his chest. Jesus Christ, he didn’t need this. He didn’t want people to see his weakness, and right now, this nosy little woman made him feel exposed. She stared at him as though she had just placed him under a microscope and was trying to decipher whether or not she had discovered something of interest.
Her gaze gave a bold sweep as she perused his face, tracking both sides at her leisure; she scanned the contrast between left and right as though she was trying to see what he had looked like before. When her attention centered on his mouth and stayed, he felt a bolt of molten lava shoot through his veins straight to his dick, rendering him incapable of any further action or thought.
“I’m sorry.” She repeated, her smooth English voice a balm to his roiling senses. She gave a brief touch of the tip of her pink tongue to her bottom lip, and the balm her voice had administered was washed away in a flaming contrast of unexpected lust.
