LAYLA For the last two years Lachlan has been my personal bodyguard. Although I don’t feel in danger and don’t need someone constantly watching me, because it’s Lachlan, I can’t help but feel safe. I love him. He is big and strong, with training that makes him deadly. Anyone who is stupid enough to cross him learns that swiftly. But I’m too afraid to tell him how much I want him. I’m too afraid to tell him that I crave him. LACHLAN I was hired to be her bodyguard, to make sure she was safe because her father is a senator. But even if her father hadn’t hired me, I wouldn’t have been able to leave her alone. I love her, want her as mine, and I need to show Layla that she was meant for me. I need to show her that if anyone looks at her, speaks to her, or thinks they have a right to touch her, I’ll lay them out and not think twice. She is my world, and no one but me will have her. I’m done waiting. It’s time I make Layla mine. Warning: Have a neck brace on hand because this story will give you whiplash. It’s short and to the point, but that’s how we like them. It’s not lacking in the heat department, has an over-the-top alpha hero, and a sweet virgin heroine. No worries, though; you get a safe read with a Happily Ever After and some baby making in the process.
