But when the deadly drug lord, La Arana, attacks the school, Lia finds herself on the run for her life. The only person she can trust is the ex-SEAL sent to protect her.Cav Jordan is strong, honorable and gorgeous…and intrigued by Lia. He knows she has suffered pain in her past, and he is determined to break through her barriers and earn her trust. But as Cav slowly chips away at the walls Lia has built, ghosts from her past threaten to destroy their fragile relationship.
Check out the Delos series:
Lia couldn’t shake her sense that she needed Cav. It was almost physical and she turned, afraid she’d say something. Damn, she resented her weakness! So she padded barefoot down the hall, the tiles soothing to her, and coolly called over her shoulder, “Good night, Cav. Thanks.”
He lay in the darkness, a sliver of moon shining through the gauzy white curtains drawn across the two windows in the living room. The couch, thank God, wasn’t soft. It was hard and nicely supported his long back.
He couldn’t sleep for a lot of reasons, even though he, too, was exhausted. In fact, he’d snapped wide-awake after Lia had left the bathroom and showered, the scent of her still haunting him.
The fragrance of the soap reminded him of the sweet smell of plumeria from Hawaii. It lingered in the large bathroom, which had a tub and shower in it. Cav had an acute sense of smell. His SEAL team often accused him of being able to smell Taliban half a mile away if the wind was right.
Now, closing his eyes, Lia’s scent in the room drove him crazy, made him want what he couldn’t have. Her fragrance stirred him at his deepest levels, not just the physical one.
Groaning to himself, he knew he needed to find a woman—and soon. Lia was off limits because she was his detail. His job was to provide her safety and protection, not take her to bed. What the hell was going on with him?
Cav knew plenty of willing women at Coronado when he was a SEAL. All he had to do was walk into a SEAL bar and there they were, ripe, willing and eager. In contrast, Lia was anything but ready. Her reserve cautioned him that something terrible had occurred to her, even before the school was burned down five days ago.
WHAT had happened to her? And how did she get those scars?
