Staying away from him is a fight I can’t hope to win…
I haven’t seen my stepbrother since the night of my daddy’s funeral. He kissed me hard, turned around, and walked clean out of my life just when I needed him most.
While I’ve been working my ass off in medical school, he’s been fighting on the underground circuit…or so I hear. Probably drinking and womanizing too–it’s all he’s ever done.
Now I’m back in town, and I hope I never see him again. Even if I can’t get him out of my head.
But when Joshua “Long Shot” McRae shows up on my porch in the middle of a damn storm with a dislocated shoulder and a cut that needs twenty stitches, I can’t turn him away, can I?
It’s only just this once.
