Mia is just a student, who walks other people dogs before and after class to earn extra money. When she sees something she shouldn’t, the last thing she expects is to find herself in danger and in need of a protector.
Especially one as large and intimidating as Darius Kingston.
Darius takes one look at Mia, and like his brothers and cousin before him, knows that she’s the woman who’s meant to be his. But there’s a darkness inside Darius, one that prevents him from allowing anyone too close to him, including Mia.
Pushing her away ceases to be an option the moment Mia is attacked and left for dead.
The person responsible for hurting her should start to run, now, because Darius is going to ensure they can never hurt Mia, or anyone else, again.
