Fall in love with Sam Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.

River rafting and adventure company owner Sam Braden works hard and plays harder. He’s fast, focused, and determined—and never at a loss for a willing woman to share his time with. The trouble is, the only woman he wants refuses him at every turn.

Physician assistant Faith Hayes escaped her painful past and built a safe, happy life in Peaceful Harbor. She’s also put what she’s learned to good use helping others by founding Women Against Cheaters, an online support group. When her boss’s sinfully sexy brother sets his sights on sweet Faith, she knows the self-professed player is everything she shouldn’t want, and she’s determined to resist him.

Sam pulls out all the stops, proving to Faith that his past doesn’t have to define his future. As she lets down her guard and begins to trust Sam, intense conversations turn to intimate pleasures. But when real life steps in and their pasts collide, it’s Faith who’s left with something to prove.

Sam has a certain reputation with the ladies, and that is the last thing that Faith wants in a man since she was cheated on once. But Sam is not a cheater, he just doesn't do relationship since his heart was broken at the tender age of 16, and is completely honest about his lack of commitment. Of course, the women he hooks up with are only looking for a good time from his as well. It takes some time and a bit of effort from Sam to convince Faith to take a chance on him, but she finally does. She learns to not judge a book by its cover and discovers a whole new side to Sam. Sam has never felt about a woman the way he feels about Faith, and once he figures out that he actually wants to have a relationship with Faith that involves more than just casual sex, he does everything in his power to show her that he is a changed man and that he only has eyes for her. Loved these two together and the way they brought out the best in each other. I'm loving the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and can't wait for the next book!
