A Protector for Phoebe

I had a plan. And it was solid. Mostly. Hide how I used to be a spoiled rich girl from everybody in my new life. Easy-peasy. Until he walks in the door.

Ryker Rossi isn’t my type. He’s six-foot-six inches of bad boy sexy.

I shouldn’t want him. He has trouble written all over him, and trouble is the last thing I need.

But then he looks at me as if I’m the answer to all his problems. How much harm can a little walk on the wild side do?

A lot.

Because Ryker Rossi isn’t who he pretends to be. And neither am I.

And when his secrets are revealed, my new life is in danger of crashing to the ground.

My boss always says Love will OUT but there are some things love can’t conquer.

This romantic comedy features a former rich girl with a big fat secret, a sexy bounty hunter who makes her want to forget about her vow to give up men, two girlfriends who don’t understand the meaning of ‘mind your own business’, and a makeshift family of former Army buddies who think telling dirty jokes is a sign of love.

A Protector for Phoebe is a standalone book in the Love will OUT romantic comedy series.

I miss the man standing at the end of the hallway, blocking the entrance to the bar, and run smackdab into him. 

“Oh, sorry,” I say and try to move around him. 

His hand grasps my upper arm to stop me. “Phoebe, isn’t it?” 

A shiver runs down my spine at the sound of his deep voice. I look up and gasp. Shit. Shit. Shit. This man is dangerous. I can feel it. 

“Um, yes.” I clear my throat. “And you are?” 

“Ryker,” he grunts. 

The name Ryker fits him to a T. He’s tall – way taller than me and I’m five-foot-nine. He must be at least six-six. He’s also wide as a linebacker. And it’s all muscle, not an ounce of fat to be seen on this man. His long-sleeved Henley is pulled taut over his chest and stretched to the limit on his biceps. 

My body warms and I nearly stumble when I realize I’m interested in this man. I haven’t been interested in any man in such a long time I barely recognize what the warming in my belly means. 

“Can I help you?” I ask after I wrestle my hormones into control. I am cool and collected. I am the ice queen after all. 

“Yeah.” He leans closer. “Do you want to go out with me?” 

Go out with him? Whether I want to or not is immaterial. I can’t go out with him. 

“I …” 

Suzie comes barreling around the corner. I never thought I’d be excited to see her.  

“This is a private party. What are you doing here?” She’s a foot and half shorter than him, but she has no problem getting right up in his face. I should take lessons from her. 

“My mistake,” Ryker says with a shrug. “I’ll see you around.” I’m not sure if his words are a threat or a promise.
