The man who walked away from her eighteen years ago is back—and he’s her bodyguard.
Retired Navy SEAL Oswald “Oz” Morgon heads an elite team of men to save and protect, but to him it’s a way of life. While his brotherhood is his heart and soul, they’re also the family he’ll never have. Then a call comes in to find the one woman who always had a grip on his heart. Oz has fought a lot of battles, but when Rose is thrown back into his arms—and under his protection—he knows he’s on the losing end.
As a JAG Corps Officer, Rose Kilbourn never expected to be kidnapped for doing her job, and there’s only one man who can save her. Back in the day, she believed Oz was the man for her. Then he vanished, leaving her with a secret she can’t confide to another soul on Earth.
If Oz chose a different path, he might have Rose now. But a man who’s lied, cheated and killed to save those he guards doesn’t deserve the sweetness of a woman like Rose. Still, he steals moments while he can, and Rose can’t bring herself to walk away from the happily ever after she always wanted. Now she must decide whether or not to use her secret to ensnare the wild man who must protect her or die trying.

Speed junkie and bodyguard Lars Ivanov steps in to guard a famous race car driver just in time to rescue a beautiful French-American press agent from a bullet too. Guarding Lillian with his body is the easy part, but discovering who is out for her blood is another story. Personally, he thinks someone is just trying to shut the irritating woman up…and who knew that’s as easy as kissing her?
Lillian Delphine is only doing her job when she finds herself in the line of fire. Now she’s got a big, grumpy-looking bodyguard claiming he’s trying to keep her safe. What he means is ordering her around. While he’s great at impersonating an impenetrable stone wall, she only sees an overbearing brute. But he does have very nice eyes. Occasionally he makes her laugh. And he’s good at using that muscular body for more than blocking bullets.
While Lars fights to save her, he realizes he’s getting far too close to the woman. And Lillian would rather take her chances with the men who want her dead than spend one more minute with the infuriating, self-important and… Oh who is she kidding? The real dangers lie in losing her heart.
Some things just can’t be ignored…and an attraction this powerful is one of them.
Bodyguard and special intelligence mastermind Bodhi North has been called a lot of things—pretty-boy, surfer dude and even hippie, but he considers himself more of a tech nerd than anything else. But when his boss gives him an ultimatum, North doesn’t take the easy way out.
Actor Sloane Sailor lands a controversial movie role—and herself right into the line of danger. Being in this kind of spotlight isn’t what she wanted at all, and now she’s on the run with a new bodyguard. With the hot man at her side, it’s hard to remember trouble’s coming at her from all angles, especially when North keeps distracting her with that little crease he gets between his eyes when he concentrates.
Learning that Sloane has a foot in two piles of trouble just might shock North more than the strength of his own emotions. With too many stakes to back down, their only choice is to rely on each other. Trouble is, Bodhi must find a way to block these feelings for Sloane…and she recognizes the real fear lies in leaving the arms of her protector.
