Twelve years ago Tucker McCoy walked away from the hell that was his family with not much more than the shirt on his back. No regrets. Never once looking back.
Living his life as a roustabout turned stunt rider with a traveling carnival keeps a smile on his face. His new family are the people he’s chosen to be in his life, the people who travel his road. Kes, Zach and Zef don’t share his blood, but they share his hopes and dreams. Understand his fears and know what makes him tick. They’re his brothers, his real family.
If you keep moving, no one can catch you—it’s a simple rule. So when Tucker crosses paths with Tera Hawkins, he knows he should move on. There’s no woman that’s ever been worth breaking his rules for. Besides, she’s off limits, untouchable. He knows stronger men would walk away, but dammit, he’s always been weak.
All he can offer her is a night she’ll never forget, but will that one taste be enough?
Tera Chastain Hawkins has lived her whole life following all of the rules and being the respectable daughter of a Senator. She's lonely and crushed by her feelings of helplessness. And all of that changes when she finds out that she has two brothers.
Getting to know Kes and Aimee has given her the strength to finally take a chance and find out what really makes her happy. And she’s going to start with Tucker McCoy.
He’s everything that she should stay away from fro more reasons than she can count, but she’s more than willing to risk it all – even if she only has him for just for one night.
“If I was going to branch out from my safe, boring life, he’d be perfect: one night of mindless pleasure— it sounded good to me. I’d thought about him a lot since the night we met, but this was the first time I’d been able to get away to visit. My imagination hadn’t let me down— he was just as hot as ever.
Tucker McCoy left Eastern Tennessee when he was just seventeen and he’s never looked back. He’s no longer that neglected kid that had to rely on neighbours to get his next meal. Now Kes, Aimee and the Carnival are his family. He thrives on the adrenaline rush of the show and all of the female adoration that comes with it.
He makes sure that girls know exactly what they are in for – one night and one night only – no complications and no commitments. Then one night by the campfire, he sees a girl that just might change his mind.
Tera is so far off limits that she’s practically in another universe. Not only is she Kes’ sister but she’s also the daughter of a wealthy Senator – educated, poised and successful. She would never want to be with a man like him.
But after one secret night, she’s so much more than he ever thought she would be and he shouldn’t want a place in her future, but if they are going to have it all and prove everyone wrong - she’s going to have to help him overcome his past.
“But for the first time in a long time, I wanted a woman to need me, to hold onto me and never let go. If only I could be the man worthy of her. But I wasn’t. And I had to accept that all I’d ever have would be this. I had to live for the moment— whether I wanted to or not.”
No one writes heroes quite like Jane Harvery-Berrick! They’re gorgeous, broken and headstrong. But I actually had reservations about Tucker McCoy.
He’s a world-class player from the wrong side of the tracks and I didn’t know if he could ever be redeemed. But Jane delivers him with such emotion and heart –breaking beauty that I found myself daring to believe in him.
Roustabout is life at its gritty, raw and poignant best. After all, “This is the carnival, where magic happens . . . “
Exclusive Excerpt -
Just as I was considering making my excuses and driving back to the hotel in Arcata, a man’s laugh rang out, a sound of deep joy echoing through the twilight. I looked across and saw him: his head thrown back, his eyes sparkling, his hands on his hips. He was still smiling when his gaze met mine. I saw his eyes darken with a predatory expression that made me feel as if his gaze alone could strip the clothes from my body.
