Drake Corbin, aka Diablo, has plans for Rose Christo that reach far beyond getting his property back.
He wants another woman to abuse.
Rose is determined to save Charlie, but when the final verdict is read, her spirit is crushed by the outcome.
After two encounters with Drake, she knows she will not survive a third.
Has Rose misplaced her trust in Noose? Is he nothing more than the callous user of women he appears to be—or is he the very thing she needs to survive her life and maybe, find love....
Sean King, aka Noose, doesn't need a woman—he never has.
Then Rose Christo earns something no other woman has ever managed—his trust. Noose's careful facade begins to slip, and he must admit what she means to him:
More than property.
More than novelty tail.
More than anyone has ever meant to him before.
The woman he loves.
Is Noose ready to sacrifice everything to tie a knot so permanent, no one will recover? Road Kill, him—Rose?
Can she stand what he will have to do to keep her safe?
