Protecting the Heiress

The Heiress Duet

Book 1
Sankofa Girl
37

One royal error in judgment was all it took for me to lose everything. 


I’ve wasted years waiting to get my life back, and I finally have an opportunity. It’s a simple undercover job--but with a catch. A thirteen month-old, crying, diaper-wearing catch. Because I’m not going undercover as a cook, or a driver. I’m the new manny.


If it will get me back in the royal family’s good graces, I’ll grin and bear it. Even on the worst days, I know this will be worth it. I’ll keep my head down and do my job.


But it’s getting harder and harder to ignore my forbidden attraction to the baby’s mother.


The attraction that could ruin my last chance to get back in the palace.


So I’ll just get back in her bed one more time…


(This is Book 1 in the Heiress duet.)

I’m no knight in shining armor. My suit is tarnished.


It was a mistake to lie to Neela, but I had no choice. Protecting her and her baby has become more than a job to me. It’s personal. But she’ll never trust me again now--and I can’t blame her. Our relationship was a house of cards that came tumbling down when she discovered the truth.


Luckily for me, she can’t fire me. We’re stuck together, at least for as long as the threat remains. And I plan to use every second to convince her we belong together.


One error in judgment was all it took to lose her.


But this one wasn’t a mistake. 


I would do it all over again if it meant keeping her safe.

Unlike my conniving brother, I have no designs on the throne. Let better men rule. 


I’m happy to let better men rule--I’ve never pretended to be a good man. I've been in exile, but no longer. I'm finally going home. This time, no one can keep me away. Not Ariel, the woman I left behind. Not the killer on my tail. Hell, not even my cousin--the king--can stop me.


But I do have a score to settle. Everything’s going just fine until Ariel is assigned to my protection detail. She will ruin everything, and probably enjoy doing it. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.


But just one look at her and I know it's not over between us. 


All I have to do is convince her I never forgot her.


And try to stay alive.

Rule #1: Do not fall for your brother’s best friend.

Rule # 2: Absolutely do not fall for your brother’s best friend.

Rule # 3: Don’t break the rules. 


Shay


Jackson Stone is hot—like burn-down-buildings kind of hot. He’s also my brother’s best friend, and the memory of one kiss with him years ago still might get to me. Maybe. But, I am not looking for a second chance.


When I return to the small town of Stolen Hearts Valley, my life is a hot mess. I’m a few bucks shy of broke with nowhere else to go. My heart’s battered and bruised, and when it comes to romance, the door is nailed shut. 


But Jackson’s the kind of man women ruin panties over. Oh, and he's my roommate. Talk about too close for comfort.


When I’m at my most vulnerable, he pulls that whole knight-in-shining-armor thing. What can I say? He’s d*mn near impossible to resist.


Jackson


Shay Martin is my best friend’s little sister. And she’s so hot she nearly sets me on fire. 


She’s a walking complication, and I don’t do complications. But I can’t seem to stay away from her. It doesn't help that her bedroom is across the hall from mine.


Every look, every kiss, every touch nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t keep my balance, much less think. Before I know it, I’ll do anything for her. Complications be d*mned.


*This is a full-length standalone romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

First three books in Ali and Weston’s best selling MC series...


Ryder


I’m not a good man. Not worthy of redemption.


As President of the Lost Breed MC, I fight, and take what’s mine.


But everything changed in the blink of an eye, and now I got a kid, my brother’s kid. The teenage bastard is just like me.


And he’s gone missing.


My only hope is that the hot woman that’s been assigned as my nephew’s parole officer is willing to help out a criminal like me.


She’s got something to prove to the world after losing her sister, and I plan on taking full advantage of her willingness.


She’s innocent, good hearted and sexy. The kind of girl I like to break in the bedroom.


I’m driven mad with the desire to gain her affection, to be the one that wakes her up in the dead of night to take advantage of her softness and remind her who’s King.


Why? Because she’s not buying my stuff.


And I love it.



Axel


They wanted to attack my house. My family. My MC.


And for that, I brought havoc to their doorstep.


An eye for an eye.


Little did I know that the favor would be returned in full.


Everything I hold dear is threatened, including the beautiful girl who holds my heart and doesn’t know it yet.


Shit gets serious when the cops show up with a little one that’s supposedly mine?


My MC has always been the only family I’ve ever had, but times are changing.


There’s nothing I won’t do to protect what’s mine from The Black Hearts.


Even kill – every last one of them.



Jax


Seven men were killed last night.


Their bodies were sliced and diced by a psycho with a machete, and no matter what angle I look at it from, I know it’s only a matter of time before I have to get my hands dirty.


Real dirty.


Things gets even more complicated when Holly Whitton, the girl who captured my heart a decade ago, moves back to New York City. She has secrets, that much is clear, but I can’t help but be drawn to her warmth. She’s a haven from the chaos that lingers at my doorstep, and she’s my responsibility to protect.


But my life with my MC is a threat to her—and so is the man with the machete and the hunger for blood. Maybe I’m the one I need to protect her from.


Maybe I’m the reason it will all fall apart.


Or maybe I’m the only one who can hold it all together.

For Ariel I risked it all, but now she may be the one to pay the price.


The good news is, I'm out of exile and I have the woman I love by my side. I even still have my crown, tarnished though it may be. The bad news is...all of that is temporary. I still have a killer on my tail who has a more permanent exile in mind. 


Not to mention the enemies I’ve made at court along the way. Oh, and there's the small matter of all the secrets I'm keeping from Ariel.


Once she finds out what I’ve been hiding, I don’t know if she’ll want to protect me.


And that’s why she can never find out.


Because it’s how I will protect her.
