Violet Marcus’s life is settled. She has it all: a place of her own, a business where her temper has its uses, and great people who work for her.
But something is missing. The problem is, her stubbornness refuses to admit how lonely she actually is.
She lost the one man she thought she could marry, a university love, but when their careers drive them in different directions they went their separate ways.
Now he’s back.
He’s also changed.
Unsure if she wants to hug him or throat punch him, she keeps her distance. Or tries to.
Travis Stewart moves to Ballarat for one reason–to have Violet back in his life. His love has never diminished. Not through the years, the distance, or even in the underworld he finds himself a part of.
He will always love her.
Now he just has to convince Violet that his heart is hers, and his soul isn’t as black as it seems.
His mission is simple: get Violet to understand they have a future together before getting kneed in the balls. Easy, especially as he refuses to be outplayed.
