Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous… 

Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she's sweet and intriguingly innocent. It's a risk-free assignment, until he's required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.

Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it's not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that's real, raw and absolutely against the rules…


Excerpt:

“Anyone know her itinerary?” the man asked.
“Even we don’t know it,” her mother explained.
“That’s good then. Not like anyone can plan to use her if they don’t know where she’ll be.” The bodyguard sounded accepting of all the rules. “Don’t sweat it.”
Fallon strangled on a breath. Dear God, he’d just told her mother not to “sweat it.” In her memory, no one had ever spoken to the refined Mrs. Rothschild Wade in such a way.
It was, Fallon decided, somewhat hilarious.
“I realize it all seems extreme,” her father said. “But Fallon is delicate.”
No, I’m not, Fallon wanted to shout. She’d never been delicate, or naive. It was her parents who couldn’t deal, who couldn’t move on. Their worry had all but crippled her—and she’d helped. In trying not to add to their bur¬den, she’d made things worse. For their sake as well as her own, she had to make some changes.
With a note of humor, the big guy replied, “Promise I won’t break her.”
Fallon snickered, but her mother just stared, so her father rushed to reassure her. And Fallon just wanted to get out the door with her hunky new bodyguard be¬fore her parents had a complete meltdown.
Tonight was a meet and greet, and hopefully the path to fun and cutting loose and finally being free. Safely. If all went well, if the bodyguard suited her, she’d get to be on her own, living her life without the shackles of the past. Limited freedom, yes. There were some things that, for her, would never change.
She’d had a very sharp reminder of that lately.
However, she could change the scenery. She could change the outlook and her attitude. And she would.



And don’t miss the first book in the Body Armor Series!

Geez, that's a hard question, Lori. As I've gotten older I've often thought about what I would do if threatened by bad guys. In my dreams I've thought about going after them with a baseball bat in the dark with all the lights off so they can't see me. But that's a bit unrealistic I think. :-) It kinda depends on where I am when threatened and how close they are to me. If it's at a crowded outside place, I would try to blend in with the crowd and stick closely to some "new friends that I make on the fly." If it's in a store or post office, etc., I would call 911 on my cell phone and ask them what I should do and how fast someone could get there. If it's at a clothing store I guess I could hide in a changing room so I could again call someone on my cell phone. But if it's while I'm at home I'd be a sitting duck...and I think I'd just lay down and let them take what they want...not fight them. Self preservation would be my main concern, letting the material things go. This is a very interesting question, Lori. jdh2690@gmail.com

Hmm....I think I would go somewhere out of the ordinary for me...like an old friends house I have not seen in years....or to the police station to get help!

Glenda said...

It would depend on the situation. I'd probably head someplace relatively crowded where they couldn't get away with anything and call the police from that location

I would hide at the mall or a friends house.
