The Dashing Widow
Abigail Merriweather just wanted to be accepted by the Ton, but when that proved impossible, she set out to scandalise them all instead; especially the stuffy Earl of Gloucester. The man is insufferable, arrogant, and everything that Abby hates about the Ton – except those rare moments when he laughs, and Abby’s heart starts to beat in a most uncomfortable rhythm.
Special Agent Rylee
Rylee couldn’t believe her rotten luck… Being chosen as one of the agents to play bodyguard to a spoiled billionaire while sailing on a Caribbean cruise depresses her… a lot. The dude – so important to the government that they’re willing to provide the best to protect him – won’t even know they’re in place. The big question – why her? She prefers work that matters, the dirty jobs, on the streets, in the trenches, and her boss knows it. Keeping Mr. Fancy Pants out of the clutches of a worshipping stalker, mercenaries and a man out to seek revenge for an old injustice just annoys her.
