About Trusting Love: Tess Browning earned the nickname Little Vixen for a reason. And she has no incentive to play by the rules anymore because, why bother? All it ever did was trap her in a loveless marriage. Tossing faithfulness out the window, the only thing she is committed to now is her new code: keeping it fun, flirty, and deliciously sultry. That is, until Ryan Prescott walks in and charms his way into her heart with a leather tool belt strapped around his waist. He’s sexy, smart, and as emotionally damaged as they come. And Ryan seemingly wants nothing more than to have Tess pick up the pieces of his broken heart. But there’s one thing he doesn’t know about her. When the details of Ryan’s past heartache come to light, Tess digs her hot pink heels into the ground and will stop at nothing to hide her past indiscretions from the man who stole her heart. Because if there’s one thing Ryan won’t tolerate—it’s dishonesty. Will Tess manage to keep the truth hidden? Or, will the secrets of a lifetime shatter her one true chance at love?
