Marine Brother: A Christmas Novel (Melrose Lane #2)
by MK Dwyer
My brother didn't deserve her, but that doesn't mean she's mine. He might be a terrible person, but clearly, we have the same taste in women.
I needed to get away from him. A way out. A solution that would keep both me and my son safe from harm. I never expected his brother to be the solution.
Theresa Braun is stuck. Stuck with a man who doesn't take "no" for an answer. Stuck in fear that Mark is mixed up with something awful, and she's guilty by association. Her prayers are answered when Mark's hotter-than-sin brother comes banging on her door looking for him, and they hatch a plan to disappear. It breaks her heart to send her son to his dad's house, but at least he'll have a safe, steady home until it's safe to come home again. Her one goal is to be home by Christmas.
Blake Banner is fed up. He tried to help his brother, Mark, and it backfired on him. He says he is determined to help Theresa to make up for his bad blood, but that is only one reason. He wants her to be his, but he knows he has to tread lightly or scare her away. The more he learns of the abuse she endured, the more he wants to hurt his own brother.
The people who are after Mark, are now after Blake and Theresa too. They want their money, one way or another, and Mark still believes that he can manipulate one or both of them to pay off his debts. With a target painted on their backs, they skip town leaving a private investigator behind to follow Mark and help them find a way to remove the threat. But Mark will stop at nothing to find them including murder.
