She makes him want to be a better man.
He makes her want to give up everything she ever believed about being a lady.
Abbie Maven shrink-wrapped herself in the truest definition of a lady after a man shattered her life. She’s raising her son alone and focusing on her career, happy to keep men at bay. What good did they ever bring women anyway?
Rhett Butler is a certified bad boy and professional poker player. The only lady he spends time with is Lady Luck and that’s how he likes it. Until he meets his best friend’s sister and is tempted beyond belief…
Despite their differences, Abbie can’t seem to ignore her brother’s best friend—the man who makes her son laugh. They are as different as ocean and desert, and yet she can’t stop her heart from opening to him… Or her body. Someone had destroyed both a long time ago. Rhett makes her come alive again.
They strike a bargain: a secret relationship on her terms. Behind closed doors, everything is perfect. But his reputation as a bad boy undermines everything she’s raising her son to believe in. Abbie has to decide: are moonlight serenades enough?
