Breanna Talmage has college behind her and is on her way to a career in law. She enjoys her job in her father’s law firm, treasures her relationship with her mother, has several close girlfriends, and sex is plentiful. She is completely satisfied with her life.
Until the threats begin.
Detective Evan Stone didn’t want to get saddled with babysitting Breanna, a young woman he considers way too immature. But when her life is in danger, he can’t say no to Breanna’s stepfather, Zachary Cooper, who is one of Evan’s closest friends. He’ll protect Breanna until the person threatening her life is caught.
Lust wasn’t supposed to be part of the assignment. Neither was falling in love.

A low moan had his attention returning to Breanna. Her eyes slid closed as she enjoyed the baked brie. The sound of pleasure reminded him of a woman in the throes of orgasm. His balls tightened in response.
He looked at her silky hair, her long neck, her small breasts. A hint of her nipples showed through the material of her dress, enticing him to discover if she wore anything under that dress or if he’d find nothing but bare skin.
Down, fella, he told his cock as it gave an interested twitch.
She bit into her cracker piled with crab dip. Her chewing stopped when she met his gaze. “What?”
Her question made him realize he’d stared at her much longer than he should have. Instead of stumbling his way through an excuse, he gave a one-shouldered shrug and told her the truth. “Just admiring the view.”
A slow smile turned up her lips. Her gaze passed over his hair, shoulders, chest. “It’s pretty nice where I’m sitting, too. You look amazing in a tux.” She tilted her head to one side, swept her gaze over his shoulders and chest again. “I’ll bet you look pretty amazing out of it, too.”
Leaning back in his chair, Evan folded his hands over his stomach. “Why, Ms. Talmage, are you propositioning me?”
“Do you want me to?”
