Someone was stalking million-dollar cover girl Allie Fortune--and ex-mercenary Rafe Stone had been hired to protect her. To keep her safe, he spirited Allie away to a secluded spot, telling himself to just do his job and not be seduced by her beauty. But Rafe soon discovered that guarding Allie was far more dangerous than he'd anticipated. Because it wasn't solely his existence that was threatened. No, this tempting creature threatened his heart and soul...and once this assignment was over, he knew his life would never be the same.
