Calla Fritz is used to hiding-hiding the scar she believes mars her beautiful face, hiding the burns that cover so much of her body, hiding her past and family secrets. But when her mother clears out her bank account and disappears, Calla is forced to return home and face the life she'd rather forget. What she didn't count on was meeting the one guy who can see past her defenses. Jackson James, a.k.a. Jax, is beyond hot-and Calla can't quite hide her feelings for a man who knows beauty isn't only skin deep. But with some dangerous characters looking for her mother-men who are perfectly happy to punish Calla for her mother's sins if she doesn't turn up soon-Calla and Jax have more troubling things to think about than the searing heat between them.
