He can't resist her...
Protect and Defend, Book 1.5

Covering yet again for her twin sister Ginger is the last thing Janelle wants to do. She's trying to shed her former exotic dancer career, not maintain it. Discovering the guy she's dancing for is an undercover cop on the hunt for her troubled sister scares her. This is the last thing she wants to deal with.

Nathan Banks is desperate to find Ginger for one reason only--he wants to nab her boyfriend, reputed drug lord and cold blooded murderer Billy Diaz. Hell bent on revenge after Diaz killed his partner, Nate doesn't expect the beautiful blonde who tricked him to be much help. But he needs Janelle to find Ginger...
The smoldering attraction between them is undeniable. Fighting it is futile. As they go on the search for Ginger, they become closer to each other--and to danger.


"Cold?" Nate pulled her closer, his arm wrapping around her shoulders,
his large hand cupping her shoulder.

He made her feel small and protected. She absorbed his warmth, loving the
feel of him walking with her in tandem, both of them anxious to get to his car.

"Thank you," she murmured, suddenly a little shy. Silly considering
everything they had just experienced together. At a sex club, for God's sake.

They found his car in record time, the both of them climbing into it
eagerly after he hit the keyless lock. Rubbing her hands together in the hope
to warm them up, she turned to watch him as he started the engine. He glanced
up, his mouth drawn into a tight line, as if he was about to tell her some grim

Nerves gnawed at her gut. No way was he going to change his mind. Would

"You're coming home with me."

Her mouth dropped open, shocked by his commanding tone. Relief flooded
through her. That was not what she expected him to say. "Okay."

"I'm not going to let you change your mind."

"I don't plan on changing my mind."

"That's a good thing."

With lightning quick movements, he was on her, his arms wrapped around
her waist, his mouth connecting with hers. The kiss was intense, his lips
nudging hers open, his tongue silky and smooth as it moved against hers.

She felt overpowered, overwhelmed and oh, God, she liked it. She slowly
slid her hands around his neck, moving up into his silky black hair. She
stroked the back of his head, the soft strands curling around her fingers.
