Hollywood actress Kat Bailey is on track to win an Oscar, but in the past year she’s been embroiled in a nude photo scandal, threatened by a fan of her cheating ex, and run off the road in what could have been a deliberate act. Now she’s renting a cabin in Lake Tahoe, considering the pros of leaving acting—including living a normal life for a change.
Bodyguard Luke Indigo initially turned down protecting Kat because he worried his intense attraction to her could compromise the job. But when he learns Kat has gone into hiding, Luke’s sense of duty has him following her to Tahoe. Once there, he pretends to be a vacationing neighbor in order to stay close and protect her. As they spend time together, Luke learns Kat’s charm is more than skin deep. She’s smart. She’s kind. And she’s oh so sexy.
Kat’s intrigued by the steely-eyed man who exudes danger but touches her so tenderly. Even better, he seems to have no idea who she is, making her think she’s finally found a man who wants her for herself rather than her fame.
However, when Kat learns Luke is the same bodyguard her manager tried to hire to protect her, she fears ambition not love has been his agenda all along. Can Luke convince Kat that he’d protect her no matter whether he’s hired to or not….and can he convince her that he wants her: body, heart, and soul?
