Lead the way…
Yeah, right. All leading the way had gotten Tate was a seat too close to a roadside bomb and a career gone sideways. He was benched from the Army for months while he healed, but he was done moping around about one unlucky roll of the dice. It was time to convince his doctors that he was right and tight and ready to return to active duty. He just needed a few more weeks to do it.
In the meantime, Tate had to keep busy so he wouldn’t go climbing-the-walls crazy. So, he agrees to pick up a couple extra bucks and hit the road, working security for a gorgeous mystery author his buddy wants protected. What could go wrong with a cake job like that? After all, Lyla is a writer, not an insurgent.
Tate’s temp job quickly turns all kinds of complicated, however, when it becomes clear that he’s not the only one who’s fascinated by Lyla’s charms. A mysterious fan is getting way too close for comfort on her book tour, and Tate begins to suspect that some of the bookworm’s gritty research has followed her into the real world—and is none too happy to find a soldier barring the door.
Can he find the person scaring Lyla out of her wits before something truly bad happens? Or will Tate’s impossible crush keep him from completing the one mission more important than any other?
The job is about more than guarding some random asset, now.
Tate has to protect the woman who holds his heart in her hands.
