THE NEW NOVEL FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE THIS MAN TRILOGY &
ONE NIGHT TRILOGY!
People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy's girl; beautiful, spoiled young woman with her father's bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But Camille is determined to have a life free from his strings. Out on her own, she's made mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press. Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father's ruthless business dealings. Caught between resentment and fear, Camille prepares herself for the measures her father will take to protect her. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.
Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating--both personally and professionally. He vowed never to let that happen again. Accepting the job of bodyguard to Camille Logan isn't the kind of distraction from his demons he should take. Women and Jake don't mix well, yet protecting the heiress seems the lesser of two evils. But Jake soon discovers that she isn't the woman she's perceived to be. She's warm, compassionate, her presence settling, and his duty to protect her soon goes deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it. He needs absolution. He comes to need Camille. But he knows he can't have both.
Camille Logan would love nothing more than to shed the spoiled rich girl label that has been attached to her, and have the freedom to live her life out of the confines of the society pages. She has made a few minor mistakes along the way, even finding her way into rehab, but she is determined to live life on her own terms, and distance herself from her father's dynasty. But just when she starts to settle into her newfound independence, she finds out that her life is in danger... and must go against everything she wants and believes in, and put her faith in her father's hands.
The moment Jake Sharp is offered the job of protecting another spoiled rich girl, he wants to turn it down, the last job he had that was similar to this one didn't pan out so well, and he doesn't want to take that chance again. But his options are limited, and he needs a distraction to keep his inner demons at bay, so he reluctantly accepts the offer. And shortly after meeting the beautiful heiress he soon discovers that this new job might just be more beneficial for him than he first anticipated...
From the moment I started this story I was immediately intrigued, an addiction quickly settled over me, and I knew that was no way I was walking away until I had devoured every last page! It had it everything you could want in a story; thrilling mystery, addictive story line, dynamic characters with explosive chemistry, and some toe curling romance too!! This was my first experience with Ms. Malpas work and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with what I found, her well crafted characters completely won me over, and her inventive story line kept me on my toes the whole way through!! If you like your fairy tales a little on the naughty side, and packed with spine-tingling suspense then this book will be right up your alley, the minute you open the book it will have you instantly addicted and flying through the pages!!
