A high-quality read is always guaranteed when Jackson introduces a new Madaris character. Blade is next in line, and he's nothing if not persistent when it comes to pursuing his dream girl. One thing is sure: When a Madaris man is involved, a woman can count her remaining single days on one hand. Welcome back, Madaris family!
Blade has been circling around Sam ever since he spotted her at his cousin Luke's wedding to Mac, Sam's law partner. Unfortunately, his reputation as a hard-core player precedes him, and he wears it like a cloak of honor. Sam's past experiences have made her the "player hater" she is today, but when she learns that she has a stalker who wants her eliminated, it brings out the protector in Blade.
