They say lightning never strikes twice…
Smart and ambitious, Ethan Auprince is one of the hottest restaurateurs on the West Coast. With his sexy-as-sin dimples and unmatched charisma, he’s also collected a large number of fans—a welcome position to be in until unwanted attention turns worrisome. He thinks he has it handled, but his family believes otherwise and secretly hires him protection. The surprise is on them, though, because his new “employee” is the one woman he’s never been able to get out of head.
Elite bodyguard Pascale Nichols is highly skilled, extremely confident, and in need of a win. A careless mistake on her last assignment cost her, and taking an undercover assignment is her chance to make things right. There’s just one problem—Ethan is the summer fling she fell in love with years ago and has never forgotten, which means her job just got a lot more complicated. Usually prepared for any situation, this time Pascale is in over her head.
But when tragedy strikes, Ethan turns the tables and plans to do whatever it takes to prove that this time, he’s playing for keeps.
