Lead the way…
Yeah, right. All “leading the way” had gotten Tate was a seat too close to a roadside bomb and a psych eval gone sideways. He was benched from the Army for months while he healed, but he wasn’t going to mope around about one unlucky roll of the dice. He was going to get better and return to active duty, in just a few more weeks.
In the meantime, he needed to keep busy so he wouldn’t go climbing-the-walls crazy. So, Tate agrees to pick up a couple extra bucks, hit the road, and rub noses with some minor celebrities—all by working security for a hot little author his buddy wants protected. What could go wrong with a cake job like that? After all, Lyla is a writer, not a terrorist.
Tate’s little temp job turns all kinds of complicated, though. He suspects that he’s not the only one who’s fallen for Lyla’s charms when a mysterious fan starts getting too close for comfort on her book tour. It looks like some of the pretty bookworm’s gritty research has followed her into the real world—and it’s none too happy to find Tate barring the door.
Can he find the person scaring Lyla out of her wits before something truly bad happens? Or will his unrequited crush keep him from completing the mission more important than any other?
This job’s about more than guarding an asset.
He’s protecting the woman who holds his heart in her hands.
