JT Maxwell has it all . . . well, almost. He's a US Marshal, he looks like he belongs in an aftershave commercial, and he has tattoos—lots of tattoos. Unfortunately, he's also in debt up to his pretty blue eyeballs. Between that and his recent divorce, his personal life is nonexistent these days. But when a free-spirited artist approaches him for a no-strings-attached one-night stand, things suddenly start looking up.
Anya Alves's life is a mess. She's lost her job, caught her boyfriend cheating on her, and if it weren't for the house-sitting gig she just landed, she'd be homeless. On top of all that, her creative muse has up and disappeared. If she doesn't get it back, her burgeoning career as an artist will be over before it starts. But after indulging in a steamy hook-up with a guy who makes it easy to forget her troubles, she gets her mojo back.
The last thing she expects when starting her house-sitting job is to see her sexy one-night stand again . . . living right across the street.
