From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the next installment in the Saints of Denver series.
Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael’s life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that’s become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she’s going hunting for him…even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.
Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it’s time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.
When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he’s all wrong for you.

Riveted is the third book in the Saints of Denver series. I’m in love with this series. I’m a little in love with Jay and a whole lot in love with Church AND Dixie. Jay’s writing is beautiful. Poetic. And just outstanding. She a composer of the written word and I can’t even express how much I loved this story. Church and Dixie are polar opposites in every way. He’s dark, brooding, quiet, stoic and she’s sunshine, light, smiles and cheer. Dixie believes there’s just one person for you, your soul mate. She hasn’t had an easy life, but she tries to see the positive in every situation and the good in every person. She’s sweet, nice, beautiful and caring. Church has a sad, horrible past that he ran from. He’s seen war, death, loss and destruction. He never smiles and barely speaks, but Dixie can’t help but be attracted to him. He’s beautiful, but it’s more than that. He’s a good man and she can see past the hard exterior. When Church gets a call from home he knows he needs to face his past and go back. But, he can’t go alone. Knowing that Dixie won’t deny him, he asks her to take the trip with him. On his Harley. Dixie being Dixie says yes. Their adventure takes a few wrong turns, but along the way Church opens up about his past and his life. It’s a heartbreaking story and Dixie can’t help but fall further for him. Church left behind the only father he’s ever known, a brother and a mother figure. He’s afraid to face them, not knowing how he will be received. Church, known as Dash back home, finally faces his fears. His family and his past. He wants something good in his life and that good is Dixie. He can’t help but fall into her curls and her arms. When danger keeps finding them, will it make Church run to Dixie or from her? Will he finally decide love is worth the risk or keep his heart hidden forever? This story. This couple. This book. This is more than a romance. It’s a story of man who’s lived more loss than any one person should. It’s about his quest to keep his heart locked up so he can’t get hurt again. But, when he finds the woman who makes him want to change. Makes him want to believe. Makes him want to smile…he can’t help but have hope. Sometimes facing your past and your fears and apologizing to those you love will lighten your heart enough to open it again.
There were men that were pretty like Asa, and there were men that stole breath with their masculine beauty like Rome Archer. Then there were men who had the best of both worlds like Dash Churchill.
She was going to be a memory I couldn’t shake.
She tasted like the promise of dirty, hot sex and smoky tequila. She tasted like all the best things men stuck at war dreamed about and told themselves they were fighting for. She tasted like potential heartbreak and the good things I knew I was never meant to have.
“You look good wrapped up in my memories, Dixie.”
