About this ebook

Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company.  She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her

Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either. 

With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her.  Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a great love story with lots of action but not too much action that you lose the love story. Talia just finished the last part of the formula she has been working on when she gets a panic call from her colleague. When the phone is disconnected. She decides to head down to the lab to check out what’s going on but when she gets there her colleague is no where around. Then she hears a voice and hides. She over hears a man taking about trapping her in her office, so she slips out the back door. She calls the one person she knows will help her, her older brother. He then refers her to the one man she has never been able to get over, Shane. Shane is a protector at heart which also happens to be his career choice. Shane is a bodyguard and there’s one body he would always protect, Talia. Shane has been in love with Talia for many years. He is also best friends with her brother. When she shows up at his house in need of his protection, he will do anything necessary to keep her safe. This is a fun, sexy, suspenseful love story. It will keep you hooked from the first page. Find out if Talia and Shane can overcome their obstacles and still live a happily ever after. Of course they do but read to find out their story.

This is a suspenseful, steamy romance that is part of the Masters & Mercenaries Crossover Collection but is a total standalone. Talia Shaw made an amazing breakthrough on a life saving drug and is now on the run to save both herself and the formula. The only person she can trust to keep her safe is her brothers best friend and her long time crush. Bodyguard, Shane Landon, has been attracted to Talia since grade school but thought he wasn't the right man for her. Now that she is under his protection, he sees that she just might be the perfect fit for his hectic and dangerous life. Their fiery attraction becomes explosive as they spend more time together on the run. But they might not have the future they desire if they can't escape the ruthless men after them. I enjoyed this fast paced, thrilling romance. It kept me on the edge, completely engaged, and was totally satisfied.

Talia has been researching a treatment for heart problems and she is very close to it’s completion when her lab is ransacked. She is now on the run with people after her and since her brother is out of the country he sends her to Shane, his best friend and her high school crush, to protect her. Shane works for McKay-Taggart but he has never forgotten the feelings he had for his brilliant tutor and the feelings he had for her are back stronger than ever. They end up going on an adventure to secure the missing part of the research but the race is on to see if they will be able to get it before the people chasing them do. These two are perfect for each other as Talia is no longer the shy girl she was in high school and she will do anything to protect her research while Shane will do anything to protect her. It is always great to catch up with McKay-Taggart team as well.
