In an explosive novel from the bestselling author of Dangerous—hailed by Virna DePaul as “smooth, sexy, and suspenseful”—deception and desire intertwine as an undercover bodyguard gets too close to the woman he’s sworn to protect.
Tabloid drama isn’t Katelyn Wade’s style. The illegitimate daughter of a notorious tycoon, Katelyn has worked hard to build a successful business on her own terms. She doesn’t put much stock in the rumors that she’s being targeted by someone with a vendetta against her father—until one of her employees at her restaurant turns up dead. Suddenly, she can’t trust anyone. Especially not her new bartender, a man with an instinct for trouble . . . and a body made for sin.
Katelyn has no idea that Thorne Hudson is being paid to protect her. He certainly never meant to seduce her. Crossing professional lines never ends well, especially when the slightest distraction could put both their lives at risk. But even Thorne’s military resolve, honed by years of training, is no match for Katelyn’s undeniable sex appeal. And after one taste of her lush lips pushes him past the edge of temptation, Thorne aches to tell her the truth—just as soon as he knows she’s safe from harm.

Little romance, mystery and suspense
Katelyn wanted to distance herself from her notorious father. She wants to be known for what she can do and not what her rich father can do for her. But after receiving threatening emails, her father thinks she is in danger. He tries to get her to agree to a bodyguard. But she refuses. So what is a father to do? He does the only thing he can and that is to hire a bodyguard (Thorne) for her without her knowing. Katelyn is missing one bartender. He seems to have mysteriously disappeared so she needs to hire a new one. Thorne can’t believe his luck when Katelyn hires him to be her new bartender. This makes it a lot easier to keep an eye on her. As unexplained things start happening, Thorne and Katelyn become closer and have this mutual attraction toward each other. While Katelyn was fun and witty, she was also a little naïve. She has been told she is in danger, but she trusts Throne to go away with him no questions asked. Thorne was a little of a mystery. You don’t get to know a lot about him. Just that he was prior military and has a strong protective stance toward Katelyn. Overall, this was a good book. Though it seemed more like a mystery, suspense story with a little romance thrown in. However mystery was well done. It did not drag on and kept you guessing as to “who done it”. I have enjoyed other books by this author and look forward to more by her.
