Once Burned

Book 3, Hammond Brothers

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Henry Hammond and Lindsay Miller are in Northstar for a wedding, but neither of them feels like celebrating. Lindsay has sworn off men until her son is old enough not to be hurt by them, but she’s drawn to Henry, a man devastated after learning that his son isn’t his. 

Henry is in no mood to entertain ideas about starting a new relationship, but when Lindsay boldly introduces herself and gets him to open up with her refreshing honesty about her trials as a young, single mother, he’s intrigued. She’s strong and fiercely independent but also vulnerable and burned-out from dating the wrong men. Factor in an immediate physical pull, and they’re in trouble. Past mistakes warn them to keep their distance, but an offer of a one-night stand turns into a week-long adventure that soothes both their hearts. 

Their bargain to help one another remember that they are both lovable is a temporary charade, but their initial attraction refuses to fade even after Lindsay heads home to Washington. Henry can’t stop thinking about her, and he’s the first person she wants to call after a fight with her son’s father. They may have a shot at the kind of love that lasts a lifetime, but first they’ll have to learn to trust again, and trust isn’t something that comes easily to either of them. 

The Hammond brothers will tug on your emotions as they show family is all you need in Suzie O'Connell's heartfelt, passionate contemporary romance series set in Northstar, Montana, where friendship, family, and love are as bountiful as the fresh mountain air.
