The Thing About Trouble

The Thing About Trouble by Juliana Stone

Book 1: A Crystal Lake Novel

Cam Booker learned the hard way that commitment and love aren’t for him. Fresh out of a relationship that nearly saw him go to jail, he’s focused on building a life and his business. But when he suddenly finds himself responsible for a motherless five-year-old, his world is turned upside down. What does he know about caring for a little girl? On top of that, his newest client, the notorious widow Banes is definitely the kind of trouble he doesn’t need.

Which is too bad for Cam. Because trouble is one thing that always seems to find him. And this kind of trouble could be disastrous.

Bluebell Banes hides behind a cool façade of disinterest and money. She’s knows what the locals think of her—Vegas showgirl hit it big when elderly David Banes married her. But they don’t know the pain she carries, or the past she’s running from. They don’t know the desire Cam Booker stirs in her, or the yearning his little girl evokes. The man has her thinking of things she shouldn’t be thinking about. Forbidden things. Complicated things. Blue doesn’t do complicated. It’s too much trouble and there are too many risks.

And the biggest risk of all is something she’s guarded for years, her heart.
