Lieutenant Commander Mick Riley, a member of the fabled SEAL Team Six, can't pull his eyes from Lacey Owens at the funeral of his mentor. Yet she is the type of woman he wants to avoid-the kind that gets him thinking about settling down, spawning kids, and finding lower-mortality employment. Lacey has her own reasons for avoiding Mick. Tired of living in the shadow of her financial mogul sister, this real estate agent has tossed ethics aside to succeed in today's beleaguered housing market. Her no-fail plan to land lucrative listings? Crashing the funerals of wealthy corpses with the hope that their heirs will need to sell their homes. But when their circles of friends collide, Lacey can't avoid Mick's rock-hard abs or smile that melts her into a pool of hot wax. Friendship blossoms and passion simmers . . . even as she struggles to conceal the unethical business plan that brought him into her life. Contains mature themes.
