Hot and Bothered

(The fourth book in the Rough and Tumble series)
A novel by

A Sexy Bad Boy Romance!

Everyone at the Rough & Tumble Saloon has a secret...

He's a lover and a fighter... and the best bodyguard around. She's a bestselling writer who needs protection. Once upon a sinful time, they spent a night together...

One that both of them would rather forget.

But when Rochelle sees Gideon for the first time in years at the Rough & Tumble, the old heat is back, and it's only a matter of time before their determination not to hit the sheets falls victim to an overwhelming desire they just can't fight...

This novel has steamy sex, Las Vegas shenanigans, and a heartbreak hero. It also includes a brief excerpt from "Naughty ad Nice," a Rough and Tumble novella, at the end. The word count is approximately 84,000 words.

Note from the author: If this series looks familiar to you, it's because it has recently undergone a bit of a change (and I'm not just talking about the covers). The books used to be published under my "Crystal Green" pen name, but now I've taken them under my grittier, steamier "Chris Marie Green" name. After all the publishing rights reverted back to me, it was time for a re-haul, and I want you to know this before you travel this road through Rough & Tumble.
