One to Keep (One to Hold) by Tia Louise - Romance>Contemporary eBook

**NEW Bonus Edition: Now includes Previously Deleted Prologue and Chapter 8 from the alternate point of view (Elaine's).**

There's a new guy in town...

"Patrick Knight, single, retired Guard-turned private investigator. I was a closer. A deal maker. I looked clients in the eye and told them I'd get their shit done. And I did..."

Patrick doesn't do "nice."
At least, not anymore.

After his fiancée cheats, he follows up with a one-night stand and a disastrous office hook-up. His business partner (Derek Alexander) sends him to the desert to get his head straight--and clean up the mess.

While there, Patrick meets Elaine, and blistering sparks fly, but she's not looking for any guy. Or a long-distance relationship.

Patrick's ready to do anything to keep her, but just when it seems he's changed her mind, the skeletons from his past life start coming back.

Elaine caught my hand and jerked me away from the edge to the steps leading down the mountain. I laughed as I followed her. “Slow down, you’ll trip. And it’s impossible to run with a hard-on.”

Instantly, she turned back into my arms, burying her head in my shoulder. I caught her, hugging her close as she straightened her bra laughing. “We have to go. I’ll die if I see that person again.”

I grinned as I held her, and once her underthings were back in place, she turned and began walking again. “I’m sorry,” I said, catching her hand. “You’re just so damned sexy.”

“Where are we headed next?”

“Back to my room?”

Stopping, she wrapped her arms around my neck and kissed my nose. “You are supposed to be showing me Scottsdale.” Those green eyes pierced right into mine, and I was gone. Anything she wanted.

I kissed her lips briefly before catching her hand and taking the lead again. “There’s a ghost town south of here. They do tours and Old West shows. You’ll love it.”

We spent the rest of the day in the shadow of the Superstition Mountains exploring mines, looking at antique photographs, and wandering through souvenir shops. I bought her a sterling silver ring embossed with a turquoise Kokopelli, and after several hours, we headed back to the resort dusty, tired, and hungry.

Again, when I helped her out of the car at the entrance to the spa, I could barely let her go, but we were meeting up again for dinner in a few short hours. “Tell Melissa you’re spending the night with me,” I said, catching her cheeks and kissing her.

She nodded, holding out her hand. “I love my ring. I don’t think I’ll ever take it off.” Then she wrapped her arms around my neck. “It’s silly, but this felt like the best day ever.”

“Even when the hiker caught me feeling you up?”

She laughed and pinched my arm. “You’re such a guy.”

“I lo—” Shit. I stopped myself. “I’ll see you tonight.”

Her expression changed, as if she knew what I’d almost said. But she blinked down a moment, seeming lost in thought. Then she smiled and gave me quick kiss before dashing into the resort. I leaned back against the car thinking about all of it.
