Ex-Firefighter. Current Boss. Future (Pretend) Husband.
I saw that plea in Robyn’s tear-moistened chestnut eyes the moment she stepped off the back of my truck naked.
How could I refuse?
Her gaze calls out to the hero in me.
Her touches awaken the man.
Each brush of her body against mine starts a fire I can’t put out.
Heck yeah, I’ll protect her.
I’ll go through flames for this woman.
I’ll even marry her and father her child.
And brand every inch of her skin as mine so her monster of an ex won’t ever touch her again.
She belongs to me now.
And I will keep her from harm.
But can I still protect her when my darkest secret is her greatest fear?
