A Mate to Protect
Two years of constantly moving to avoid her ex-husband’s stalking has taken its toll on Anne and ten-year-old Liam. She has high hopes that Five Peaks will be different, that perhaps they will be able to find some semblance of peace here, but her hopes are dashed when a fight breaks out in her bar. Now she has to make sure the handsome hunk who started it all by defending her honor is okay. The last thing she needs is a dead body on her dance floor.
I make my living by killing people. Drug lords, terrorists, and gangsters. The way I figure it, I’m making the world a better place, and getting paid well to do it. I won’t hurt an innocent person and I make sure my clients know this. I did my job and I did it well. There was a witness, but I let her go. A beautiful girl who shouldn’t have been involved with the scumbag in the first place. She told me she was with him against her will, and I believed her.
