“I’m a Murphy. I protect what’s mine.”
A nice, sensible woman like me should have never spoken to a man like Patrick Murphy. And I really, really shouldn’t have spent the most reckless—and passionate—night of my life in his hotel room.
But a walk of shame is the least of my concerns when I find myself on the wrong end of gun.
Now Patrick’s decided he wants to keep me close. Even worse, I want to let him.
I’m smart enough to know I’m in over my head.
Nothing in my safe, predictable life has prepared me for Patrick or the dangerous world he’s plunged me into.
All I can do is fight. Fight the insane, undeniable attraction that grows with every moment I spend with him.
And hope. Hope that the darkly irresistible man who I fear has stolen my heart can protect us both.
