Hudson Macklan has it all: a rock-hard body sculpted by genes and discipline, a sharp wit that has earned him a promising career, and a smile that could melt any heart. But the property lawyer’s greatest love is Dirty Diana. Who needs a cloying, suffocating girlfriend when you have an affectionate Chihuahua waiting for you at home?
Hudson’s charming life hits a speed bump when real estate agent, Ella Newsome, arrives in town. The locals are instantly charmed by her beaming smile and bouncing curls, but Hudson only sees one thing: his next conquest. After a painful break up, Ella is eager to shed her people-pleaser image and take control of her life. The last thing she needs is a playboy—even if he is the most beautiful man she’s ever seen.
If there’s one thing Hudson enjoys, it’s a challenge. But how far will he go to get what he wants? This is one game the playboy plans to win, but his gamble could come at a cost neither of them foresees.
Ruined Without You is the second standalone novel in the Town of Deer Crossing contemporary romance series, following diverse couples as they fall into steamy, life-changing love.
