Raiden Kent. Wealthy. Possessive. Commanding.
To say his intense reaction to Scottie Sullivan barging into his life shocked him was an understatement.
Shrewd, savvy, confident, the former DEA agent ran circles around him in cyber security, his specialty.
Her curves and beauty made focusing on business absurd.
Raiden couldn’t predict Scottie would be his guardian angel in disguise, or how badly he needed her protection.
The day she saved his life made that clear.
Now he had to choose if having Scottie by his side was worth the angst she created.
Could he handle the constant threats hanging over her head each time she strode out the door?
Would her insistence on playing hero be their destruction?
Raiden recognized one thing.
A strong, independent woman like Scottie would never be dictated to.
He had a choice to make that would change everything.
Raiden escorted me to the elevator when the day ended, which he usually did, and we struck up a conversation about the weekend. It was Friday, and he began by asking, “Any exciting plans for tonight?”
Other than putting on my jammies and binge-watching Netflix, like I did every weekend, there was zilch on the calendar.
“Not tonight, I don’t.”
“Does that mean you have plans for tomorrow night?”
I cast him a glance and asked, “Are you just curious or you asking for a particular reason?”
“Yeah, I thought if you were free, maybe we could grab some dinner tonight.”
I paused. Not wanting to sound like an eager pup, I answered, “Hmm. Can I get back to you on that?”
“What’s there to think about?”
“You’re not going to take me to one of those places that only serves sprouts and tofu, are you?”
He cocked his head and guffawed. It was contagious and soon I was laughing too.
“Not a sprouts and tofu fan, huh?”
“Not that there’s anything wrong with them because I’ll eat just about anything, but after that healthy lunch, I need to score some meat.”
That didn’t come out exactly like I’d planned, and he smirked. Oh, Lordy, was he sexy when he did that.
“Score some meat, huh? That can definitely be arranged, Ms. Sullivan.”
Jesus, my face was on fire. What the hell had I been thinking?
“Uh, I was thinking more along the lines of a burger or steak.”
His hand moved over his chest. “What a disappointment. My hopes were raised for nothing.”
“Oh, stop it. I’m sure you have women falling at your feet.”
“Falling at my feet, huh?”
“Yeah. Snap your fingers and they come running.” “I can’t deny there’s not a shortage of them, but there’s one problem.”
“Oh? What’s that?”
The elevator dinged, and the doors whooshed open. He bent his head and whispered, “None of them are you.” His warm breath fanned over my neck and I shivered.
