He agreed to protect her...not love her.
Victor Monroe left behind a brutal past when he decided to become an FBI Agent. He knows that other agents think he's too cold, that he has ice in his veins, but he doesn't care what folks say about him. He gets the job done--always. No matter the cost.
Then he's blackmailed into guarding...her.
Zoe Peters, ex-showgirl, daughter of a mob boss and drug dealer, a witness who wants to vanish. Zoe is wild, beautiful, and on far too many hit lists. It's now Victor's job to keep her safe--a job that Zoe makes damn difficult. But keeping her alive is his mission. It's supposed to be strictly professional between them. Just another case. Only...
He never counted on falling for her.
Zoe is not the woman he expected. She isn't cold or hard. She lights up the room when she walks into it, and despite the hell surrounding her, Zoe is good. Probably too good for Victor because Zoe doesn't know about the secret deal that Victor worked out with her father. Zoe doesn't know that Victor intended to use her for information and then turn her over to waiting operatives.
Desire wasn't supposed to enter the equation. The white-hot lust he feels for Zoe should have never threatened Victor's legendary self-control. But she's under his skin...melting his ice...getting to him... Soon Victor doesn't care about the law or about the lines he has to cross for Zoe. She is his priority. Victor will not rest until every threat to her has been eliminated. And then...
Zoe will be his.
