New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery invites you back to Fool's Gold, where a newcomer to town might finally meet the man she never knew she needed in this uplifting opposites attract romance… 

Angel Whittaker earned his scars the hard way, but the scars that can't be seen are the ones that haunt him the most. Since he moved to Fool's Gold, California, he's cobbled together a life for himself as a bodyguard trainer. If he's not exactly happy, at least his heart is safe after the devastating loss he's experienced. 

Working with pro-football superstars taught tough-talking PR woman Taryn Crawford one thing—she can go toe-to-toe with any man. But then dark, dangerous former Special Ops Angel targets her for seduction…and challenges her to resist his tempting kisses. 

Even in four-inch heels, Taryn never backs down. Unless, somehow, Angel can convince her that surrender might feel even better than victory.


  • Another hit!!!!!

    Great story. All of Fool 's Gold is a must read. Can't wait for more!
  • It's always a great time to visit Fool's Gold!

    This is Angel and Taryn's story. He lost a wife and child to a tragic car accident and he blames himself because he wasn't there to save them. Taryn had an abusive past and finds it extremely difficult to trust anyone. The two start dating and agree to no-strings-attached and no-getting-serious rules. They haven't figured out that you can't help what your heart feels. I always love going back to visit Fool's Gold. This was a good visit. It just wasn't my favorite visit. I just did not feel any chemistry between Angel and Taryn. It was more like they were best buddies. Even the sex had no heat to it. I expected more from the take charge, bossy, Taryn and the uber sexy, ex-military man, Angel. The story line was great and of course, all the characters were fantastic. We even got a glimpse of Eddie and Gladys, which is always a hoot! My favorite part of the whole book was Angel being a FWM Grove Keeper and all the little ones. So sweet! I can't wait for my next visit to Fool's Gold in Before We Kiss. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
