"I don't want to be attracted to you." Her voice was steady. Direct. "Being attracted to anyone isn't part of my plans," she continued as if discussing the weather. "I don't have time for it. But…" She stopped, her teeth catching her bottom lip.

"You are," Aslin finished for her, his heart pounding. "You are attracted to me."

She nodded, her gaze holding his.


After fifteen years as the personal bodyguard to the world's biggest rock star, ex-SAS commando Aslin Rhodes excels in the role of intimidating protector, oozing threatening menace. Now that the singer has retired, Aslin takes a new assignment as a military consultant on a blockbuster film. But just as he's getting comfortable in the world of Hollyweird, he faces an unexpectedly immovable object. An American martial arts expert no taller than his chin, who promptly puts him on his arse.

Rowan Hemsworth's focus is two-fold—keep her famous brother grounded, and never again be a defenceless victim. She has her hands full as the fun police, keeping her brother's money-sucking entourage at bay. But nothing prepared her for the British mountain of muscle who makes her knees go uncharacteristically weak.

When a string of accidents on set convinces Aslin that Rowan—not her brother—is the target, things get bloody tricky as he tries to convince the stubborn woman she needs his protection. And accept that she belongs with him. In his arms, in his bed…and in his heart.
