The most challenging part of Scott's new job as a sales rep for Winters Beer is attempting to get the local bar, the Fiddler, to sell their brew. Why? The bartender, Mercedes. She's gorgeous, sexy, and smart, and she turns him down every time he approaches her. After coming to her rescue, she rewards him with a kiss -- and her number. But when it comes to love, Scott has a dirty past, and he's not quite ready to risk his heart again. He hopes one carnal night will be enough to satisfy his need for the elusive barkeep.
Mercedes knows she shouldn't trust Scott. Not after hearing the rumors at the bar, rumors from women saying he doesn't call after their night together, or worse, he never calls at all in the first place. After one wild night in his bed, he delivers a crushing blow -- he's not interested in a relationship. But she's welcome in his bed, anytime.
Will pride keep her from enjoying the pleasure she finds in his arms? Can Scott overlook past pain and risk his heart all over again?
