Heading up the security team for a disreputable billionaire seems the perfect outlet for Dash Copeland’s anger issues. That is, until he commits the cardinal sin of consorting with the boss’s daughter—Peyton Daniels.
Worried his indiscretion could cost him his job… or his ls life… Dash turns his back on his powerful feelings for Peyton and inserts some much needed distance between them by going off the grid. He thought he could forget the seduction of her touch. Nothing could be further from the truth.
When Peyton suddenly goes missing, Dash is ordered to track her down. The cost of failure being her life… and his. For the first time, Dash must cast aside his savage methods and handle the matter with a delicate hand.
Will it be enough to save the only woman he’s ever loved?
Or will one misstep allow his enemies to achieve their twisted agendas?
I like my romance the way I like my coffee…dark! But I also like throwing in a twist and tossing in a little suspense and adventure for good measure.
My characters are far from perfect. Some of them have flaws so large that they’re really obstacles. But somehow, those who love them find a way to deal with each and every quirk.
Peyton Daniels is the epitome of someone who doesn't do well with change. First, her mother and brother are killed. Second, Peyton's father disregards her as if she was responsible for their deaths. The one person who she can turn to is slowly turning away. The girl doesn't do well with rejection.
I waited for the judgment, but it never came. I braced myself for the harsh words condemning my behavior—never happened. That was what I appreciated about Dash. He didn’t pour kerosene on the flames of my life. He let the embers burn until there was nothing left but ash, and then he spoke. He’d give his assessment along with some advice, and if I were lucky, I’d get a little affection to soothe the burn.
