In Sandra Chastain’s funny and sensual story of unfettered love, a pretty locksmith discovers that she holds the key to one man’s guarded heart. Always ready to look on the bright side, professional locksmith Sarah Wilson expects the late-night call to be some sort of practical joke. But no. Big, buff, and handcuffed to a bed, Sheriff Asa Canyon is as red-hot angry as he is just plain hot. The thrill of setting him free makes this one night that Sarah will never forget . . . because it’s the night she unlocks the secret to her own happiness.
Torn between wringing his best buddy’s neck for pulling this little stunt or kissing the sweet and sexy locksmith who comes to his rescue, Asa chooses the latter. But the longing their encounter ignites is wreaking havoc with his life. A committed loner, Asa doesn’t have plans to look for love, or even really believe it exists—at least not for him. Until Sarah sets out to break open his heart and show him what joy lies inside.

About Sandra Chastain
As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies.
I wouldn't change a thing about my life, for my family is a living expression of the love I write about. When I create a romance for you, I'm telling stories of love and commitment, and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from writing about happily ever after. --Sandra Chastain
