Dear Reader,

Sometimes you have a background character who comes to life and starts demanding her own story, which is how I found myself writing this story about Peaches Taylor. Peaches was a badass waitress from the Starkwood Saloon, but waiting tables wasn’t enough for her. She wanted to be the boss. She had a plan to make that happen, too, but then Eli King came home and ruined everything. This isn’t the first time she’s had to deal with him—the two of them have been at each other’s throats since they were kids. When she was six, she shoved a spider down his pants. When he was ten, he locked her in a closet overnight. Then she hot-wired his car at seventeen, and things got ugly…

They’re adults now, and the Starkwood isn’t a toy to fight over—it’s the hill they’ll die on. No prisoners. No compromises. No mercy. Peaches Taylor and Eli King are going to war.
