About this ebook

I don't need a bodyguard.

My stalker is fake. I’m positive those letters were written by my controlling, ultra-religious father so he'd have an excuse to hire someone to watch my every move. It's just my luck that he's a U.S. Senator and my new bodyguard is a Secret Service agent with one strike left.

It's worse luck that my new bodyguard isn't just hot, he's... nice. Gabriel treats me like I'm more than a bargaining chip or a potential wife to do his cooking and cleaning. He laughs at my jokes. He listens to my opinions.

When he thinks I'm hurt, he goes ballistic.

And when he catches me sneaking out of my family’s house, he keeps my secret. He even buys me a drink.

Just because he's sweet, protective, and fills out a suit like nobody's business doesn't mean I can trust him. He's still working for my father, and his job is on the line. 

If only that were enough to keep me from sneaking into his room every night. Now we're keeping a secret that could ruin us both.

I need a way out. He needs a way back in.

There's no way this can work, but I've always had faith.

Safekeeping is a high-heat standalone romance. It's for fans of bodyguards, super-protective heroes, high-stakes secret relationships, and anyone who's been at odds with their family. The hero is a Secret Service agent who's not about to let anyone touch the heroine, and the heroine is plucky, brave, and not afraid to find her own way. It's a steamy, high-stakes story, and of course there's an HEA!

This standalone is for fans of Lauren Landish, Nicole Snow, Cate C. Wells, and Anna Hackett.

Safekeeping was originally published as Slow Burn by Roxie Noir.

Gabriel is a hot bodyguard, Ruby is the subservient daughter of a senator who hides her real self behind sweet smiles and frumpy clothes, raised in the bible belt of South Carolina where women are taught to serve their men folk. I loved Ruby's character she was naive, funny and determined but she's also in danger from a crazy stalker and that's why Gabriel's been assigned to keep her safe. But can he keep his desire for her in check? This book is a slow burn, building up to a passionate climax that was well worth the wait. With great characters and an excellent story line this book is a must read.
