Texas ~ Present Day
Kody Winter left behind his family and his girl when he up and joined the military. The whole time he was in, all he could think about was Rose Leighton, the young girl he'd left behind. He'd tried to see her when he'd come home on leave, but was told Rose left town. Kody never forgot Rose and, now that he's back in town for good, he discovers that Rose is back. Now all he has to do is find her and make her see that they belong together. Of course, that's easier said than done. Rose's attitude doesn't put Kody off, especially after a heated kiss that would have turned into a fiery inferno if she hadn't pulled away. Well, Kody is pulling out all the stops, and he's going to win back the woman he loves.
When Kody left town, Rose Leighton was devastated. She loved him and he'd gone and left her behind, not caring to ask if she wanted to go with him. Considering her abusive father, Rose would have gone gladly. Then Rose found out she was carrying Kody's child and feared the Winters would try to take the baby from her, so she left town with her sister. Things changed and Rose had no choice but to return home where she is now a licensed masseuse and raising her son Travis. Seeing Kody for the first time after all this time is heartbreaking and eye opening. One thing's for sure; the chemistry between them is still sizzling hot and Kody isn't going away. What happens when he finds out about Travis?
WINTER'S ROSE is about the youngest Winter brother, Kody, who's just as sexy and dominating as the other two. Kody has one thing on his mind...getting Rose back. He quickly learns it won't be as easy as he thinks. But it's sure going to be fun persuading her back into his arms, and his bed. Rose's life has never been a piece of cake. Her home life sucked, the only joy in her life was Kody, until he left her. Discovering he'd left her with a tiny part of him, Rose picked up the pieces of her broken heart and moved forward. When these two get together again, it's explosive. Their sexual escapades are spicy and beautiful. Readers will root for a happily-ever-after between Rose and Kody and hope for understanding on his part when he learns Rose's secret.
Author Ruby Storm wraps up the Winter Studs series perfectly. WINTER'S ROSE is skillfully written with in-depth characterization, red-hot sex scenes, but most of all it has the emotion and feeling that make it complete.
