After being the quiet, shy girl her whole life, Elise Markham is ready for a mental makeover. She's done keeping to herself and staying out of trouble--it's time to break out of her shell and maybe meet someone intriguing in the process. So, on a photography trip to Bluebonnet, she has a whole lot more on her mind than snapping photos, especially when Rome walks into the picture.
Playing dirty is fun.
The newest instructor at Wilderness Survival Expeditions has a colorful past, to say the least. Having come from a family of notorious con artists that destroyed his credit and reputation, all before his eighteenth birthday, Rome just wants a decent job and a quiet life in a town where no one knows his name. He's exactly the kind of bad boy that an innocent girl like Elise should stay far away from.
But Elise is tired of doing what's right. She's ready to throw caution to the wind--and let Rome show her just how exciting being bad can be...

Elise Markham has always been a wallflower. Now that she’s mostly recovered from scoliosis and had the “port-wine” birthmark lasered off her face, she decides she’s tired of life passing her by, but it’s hard to shake her shyness. Finally she gets the courage to proposition Rome Lozada, the sexy bad boy of tiny Bluebonnet, Tex. Rome knows he’s not good enough for Elise, but he can’t resist when she asks him for some “life experience.” While much of the action takes place between the sheets, Rome also emotionally supports Elise when her confidence flags, and respects her boundaries when she hesitates. Elise’s hang-ups about her appearance are endearing at first, but Clare harps on them a little too much. On paper, Rome is also no prize, but he’s focused on reforming himself—a refreshing change from the rough romance hero who needs a woman’s love to tame him—and readers will share Elise’s inability to resist his mix of toughness and vulnerability.
