The Insiders is the first in a brand new, page-turning romance trilogy from New York Times bestseller, Tijan!
Bailey is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory. But still, normal for her. Then, things happen—a guy breaks into her house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She finds out her father is actually billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy she’s idolized all her life. She learns all this when she meets dark, mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s an associate of her father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try again. It’s a no-brainer.
After this, three things become clear for Bailey:
1. She’s living at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.
2. She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.
3. She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her crazy.
A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence, Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…
The attempted kidnapping that opens this overloaded romantic suspense novel and series launch from Tijan (Nate) plunges plucky heroine Bailey Hayes into a world of danger and privilege. The kidnappers targeted Bailey to get to the father she never knew she had Peter Francis, the tech mogul she's idolized for years. Now 22-year-old Bailey must hide out with her newly discovered stepmother and half siblings all also targets in her father's tightly secured mansion. Kashton Colello is more than just Peter's head of security. He takes care of every member off the Francis family and, in many ways, has more power in the Francis estate than Peter himself. When Kash and Bailey are thrown together, Kash is as turned on by Bailey's intelligence as she is his alpha-male magnetism. But as Kash's fiercely guarded secrets keep him from opening up, there's not much talking going on between the two, relegating their chemistry almost entirely to the bedroom. The charm and humor of Bailey's narration helps break the tension, but it doesn't negate the danger the Francis family faces, which includes another attempted kidnapping, a poisoning, infidelity, and the threat of Kash's wealthy, dangerous grandfather. The result is a whirlwind of high-stakes suspense that settles into a balmy cliffhanger.
