I was hired to protect her, not make her scream my name.
From dodging bullets in Afghanistan to working for the Secret Service, I know danger pretty well.
Or I thought I did. That was before my latest assignment came with a whole new kind of danger.
Her name? Ruby.
She’s the gorgeous as hell, opinionated, spitfire daughter of Senator Burgess. Her family’s beyond strict, but for a girl who’s so innocent, she’s anything but sweet.
Wicked green eyes, curves that beg me to touch them, and a smile that makes me think dirty, dirty thoughts.
Her father’s a nightmare – a totalitarian who rules his family with an iron fist. He decides what clothes his daughters wear, what books they read, where they can go – hell, who they marry.
Ruby can pretend with them, but she can’t pretend with me. I can tell there’s more to her than the demure southern belle she has to be in public.
But I’m a professional, hired to be her bodyguard. I know better than to fall for someone I’m supposed to protect, but with every glance, every accidental touch, every word she says to me, I just want her more.
I want to tear away the innocent good girl veneer and make the real Ruby scream my name as she rakes her nails down my back.
It’s f–king dangerous. If we get caught, there will be hell to pay – and it’ll be worse for her.
But I don’t think I can stay away.
Slow Burn is a full-length completely stand-alone novel with a happily-ever-after ending and steamy scenes that might require a cold shower.
