Layful banter is a powerful current of lust pure but not so simple If only Luke weren't so damned proper he'd see that the years between them don't matter a whit not when a single touch can set them both ablaze Josie's hell bent on having it all and that includes keeping Luke in the pictureunless the vengeful bandits on their trail find them first. .
