The prick left without saying a word.
Took my virginity and broke my heart in one fell swoop.
Now we're reunited, and stuck in a damn blizzard.
He was my best friend's older brother.
The hot jock every girl wanted.
But that doesn't excuse his assholeness.
He better keep that charming smile to himself.
You know the smile.
The one that makes panties melt into thin air.
My mission: Make it through my bestie's wedding with my panties still intact.
I still hate him.
And love him.
What do they call that? Oh yeah.
Who is Gavin Manning and why does he keep showing up wherever I go? What does he want from me?
These are just a few of the questions law student Carrie Summers asks herself after running into devastatingly handsome Gavin for the third time at the opening of the hottest new club in town, Club Privé. Is he stalking her, or is it fate?
Despite telling herself that she doesn't have time for a relationship, she finds his persistent attention flattering, and can't help but be attracted to those deep blue eyes.
An evening of fun and dancing turns into the most incredible night of her life, and she still doesn't have a clue about Gavin. All she knows is he's an amazing lover.
Don't miss the complete series of Club Prive, but be warned – you might need a cold shower after this one.
He's bearded, angry, highly trained, and has a job to do.
She's the damsel in distress who's smarter than she looks, and doesn't want anyone's help.
Could it be they both need something neither will admit to? Fate fueled by the laws of attraction may just decide for them.
I didn’t ask for this. I was just doing my job, and they have the nerve to put me on a Witness Protection detail? This is crap. I’ll do my assignment, then go back to my job and what I love – kicking ass and taking names. I hadn’t spent 6 years in the Marine Corps to be put on babysitting duty once I’d joined the FBI. The witness they assigned me to, Rayanne, is an annoying, brainless blonde with a sassy mouth and a body that belongs on a website you had to pay to access. Not that I noticed or anything.
I can look after myself. I don’t need anyone’s help, and the government is being ridiculous for putting me in Protective Custody. I'll testify against my former bosses and then go back to my life as a single girl in the big city. I love my career as a paralegal, and once this Neanderthal they’d assigned to babysit me is out of my life, I'll go back to it. I just wish he wasn’t so easy on the eyes. The beard, the hard body, and that voice. Why couldn’t they have sent me someone ugly – and nice? Because Duke is neither of those things.
ABOVE PROTECTION is book 2 in the Imperfect Heroes Series. This contemporary romantic suspense novel is for readers 18+.
