Fake marriage? If that’s what it takes to get the job done. Boone Wynton is one of the top bodyguards on the WEST Protection team and in the country. So taking a job to protect the wife of a billionaire oil tycoon seems like a breeze—until he learns he can’t get near the possessive man’s wife unless he’s married. His only option? A coworker who hates him. Maybe she is kind of pretty, and her lips drive him crazy—as long as she isn’t speaking. Cyber-security guru Lauralee Sheldon has worked at WEST Protection all of a month—exactly long enough to learn she can’t stand Boone Wynton. The only way she’ll act as his fake wife is for the sake of protecting a vulnerable woman, and even then on one condition—that Boone never lays a hand on her, even if they are big and perfectly rough. When fighting turns into foreplay, Boone changes the rules of the game, blurring the lines between real emotions and deception. And with dangers flying at them from all directions, it’s hard to know who to trust. Is it the man Lauralee never believed in?
He thought she was dead. He was wrong. I remember- Three years ago, Maddox Wolfe lost his mate. Since there’s nothing more dangerous than a bonded shifter on his own, Ordinance 7304 gave him three choices: voluntary incarceration until he’s no longer deemed a threat; a lobotomy-like procedure that would dissolve his bond; or a state-sanctioned execution so that he could be with his mate again. And while death held a certain appeal in the hazy days following the tragedy, Maddox had his family and his pack to live for. So, refusing to give up his memories of his sweet Evangeline, he chose to spend the rest of his days in the Cage. I forget— There’s a hole in Evangeline Lewis’s memory. The doctors tell her that it’s normal, that she’ll recover fully in time. After all, it’s only been three years since the accident that nearly killed her. They never thought she’d wake up; a nagging, annoying sensation that something’s wrong is the least of her worries. Especially since she has so much going on: a new apartment, a new job, her mother’s well-meaning attempts at match-making… but tell that to her wayward psyche. By day, she can’t shake the feeling that something’s missing. And, by night, she can’t escape the dreams of a gorgeous man with glowing gold-colored eyes… (Read the full blurb on Amazon)
They say I’m theirs. That they own me and I’m powerless to escape. And to prove their point, the ruthless mafia men steal me away.
As of three hours ago I learn I’m indebted to the tune of ten million dollars to the Chicago mafia underground because my deceased father couldn’t keep his thirst for power and money in check. But before he died, he left me with a gift. An arranged marriage to the mafia men he owes. Lucky me.
I’m barely scraping by as it is so I have two choices: play nice with the beautiful, deadly mafia bosses and pay my father’s debt… or marry them.
This is no fairy-tale story and I’m no wanna-be Cinderella. They’ve made it clear they’ll take my body as payment and warn me not to run because they own every inch of me for as long as they wish. Once they put their hands on me I’m afraid I’ll like what they do to me. Question is, can I be the queen they want me to be?
