Breaking the Rules (Paperback)
Virginia Ward has one goal in life: to find the funds to save her granddaddy's service station from closure. She has no time for heroes who, in her experience, lie, cheat, and break hearts. However, her disastrous dating column in the local newspaper proves there are many other pitfalls to finding happiness.
Firefighter Carmen Johnson shuns love and commitment, believing her chosen career will likely bring about her early death. Her family is cursed and she doesn't want to leave a loved one behind to face life alone.
Gin's determination to stay far away from the hero, and Carmen's goal to make the hero hater a notch on her bedpost, spurs a heated competition. They find themselves battling their willpower and their bodies, where the electric energy is far more hazardous than any inferno.
Can Gin and Carmen relinquish their long-held beliefs for a happy ending? Or will the family curse finally claim the next one in line?
