This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
For the first time in her life, art therapist Lucia Lewis is ready to live. And the masquerade ball in Las Vegas is just the place to find a ridiculously hot guy to complete her wicked to-do list. The only rule? Her elegant Venetian mask-which conceals the scars that have always held her back from the life she deserves-stays on.
Navy SEAL Cade Daniels heads to Vegas on a mission to keep his best friend's little sister out of trouble. Except the woman he's sent to find is all heat and flame...and perfectly capable of handling herself. And him. But the moment Lucia's mask slips, the need to heal her, body and soul, is complete and absolute temptation.
But revealing himself could cost him the one thing he isn't willing to risk...his heart.
Each book in the Sin City SEALS series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Needs fixing please
The first paragraph there is a correction to be made, when she was thinking about her weight six months ago, instead of that being said what was said (was six month ago???? That’s not right)!! It is SIX MONTHS AGO just saying.
The story is an extremely sexy, sweet romance between a Navy SEAL on leave in Las Vegas and a woman with scars on the inside and the outside, who only wanted to have a steamy night of anonymous pleasure. Cade is exactly what Lucia needed. You can't rush love but Cade and Lucia have proven that you can't slow it down either.
This is a well written romance and I can't wait to read more from this very talented author.

The opinion expressed is my own.
characters were compelling and solidly voiced:
The first in the new Sin City SEALs series kicks off with a bang in a whirlwind Vegas weekend. Lucia just wants to ‘get away’ and become someone else for a weekend: she’s never really settled her past issues of abuse, and she’s allowed that to constrain her. But, a naughty to-do list with the promise of a masquerade ball in Las Vegas just may be the diversion and kick-start she needs to move forward. Her sister, Natalie, isn’t entirely on board with her sister’s plans, so she makes arrangements.
Cade is a SEAL, and best friends of Natalie. He agrees to help his friend out by watching over her sister Lucia during her weekend in Vegas: make sure that Lucia doesn’t get in trouble.
Cade’s certain this is an easy assignment: he doesn’t want complications and isn’t right for a relationship: his father’s military career tore his family apart – so he won’t have one of those.
Approaching Lucia as part of his deal with her sister, Cade realizes that there is far more to this woman, and she intrigues him like no one has in forever. While he shouldn’t get involved, it doesn’t seem as if he has another choice: she is beautiful and deserves to be shown it in every way possible. While Lucia can’t believe the comfort and confidence she feels at Cade’s side. As they open up to one another, readers are drawn to these characters: so similar yet different, and you want to see them make those steps to a relationship.
While I did find the development of the relationship a bit on the ‘insta-love’ side of things, these characters were compelling and solidly voiced: their issues were not minor, yet not so extensive that the relationship seemed impossible because of them. Their chemistry was palpable, and several moments fogged up my eReader! Most importantly, although they both claimed to ‘not want more’ their super-secret wish was to have a shot at a happy and fulfilling life, and sometimes, wishes do come true
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
