Fierce and sexy, former Marine Travis Sanchez has always held himself back from the rest of the world, using his tattoos and piercings as armor. But when the woman he’s wanted for months is threatened, he knows it's time to strip away the bad boy image and show her just how much he wants to be with her. As one of Red Stone Security’s best contractors, Travis is trained for almost any situation. But nothing prepares him for the most dangerous threat of all: the one to his heart.
Kind-hearted Noel Baskov’s only wish for the holidays is that her Miami coffee shop has a successful Christmas season. But her focus on work is interrupted when the family of the young girl she mentors is threatened, and the man she’s been lusting after for months steps in to handle it. Unfortunately the danger is far from over. Can this sexy and mysterious warrior protect Noel, or will he be the one to shatter her heart?
Warning: features a heroine determined to fight for those she cares about, a protective hero with a very interesting piercing, and some holiday magic.
As Travis and Noel literally run into each other, Travis notices immediately that something is wrong. Noel’s distraught after finding out her fourteen-year-old mentee is in trouble. Travis will not let Noel go into a dangerous situation alone and quickly leaves with Noel to rescue the girl.
As they arrive at the girl’s home, Travis finds the girl’s mother being held hostage inside the house. Travis’s military training kicks in and he efficiently resolves the situation. The girl and her mom are safe and the dangerous situation is over, or is it? Someone is out for vengeance and Travis is the target.
This was my first Red Stone Security series read and I really enjoyed it. My favorite part about the story is that Travis, the hero, is not a ladies man like we see in many books. He’s only intimate with women he’s in a relationship with and that’s only been twice. I love how respectful he was and loved his sense of honor. Travis and Noel are beautifully paired and I enjoyed watching their mutual interest evolve into something more permanent. Great romance read!
