A former Russian Mafia soldier is hired to protect a friend’s young daughter, but he knows he’ll do more than keep her safe — he’ll make her his. Forever.
If she were to simply whisper my name, I would be at her feet, begging to touch what I shouldn’t, taste what doesn’ t belong to me, run my hands along the sweet innocence she taunts me with.
Penelope Justice is eighteen, old enough to graduate high school but — according to her parents — not old enough to live without 24/7 security. Practice has made her an expert at ditching her bodyguards. One look at Ivan and she never wants to run again.
I’ve been hired to protect her.
I can’t help but think that perhaps someone should have protected her from me.
Ivan steals the breath right out of her lungs, something no boy has ever done. Then again, he’s far from a boy. This man, this man who looks like he could kill someone with the flick of a wrist, is everything. He is her future.
I can’t let her go and I won’t give her up. I’ve done bad things in my life, and I don’t deserve her. But I can’t do the honorable thing.
I’ve never been noble, and I’m not starting now.
