For years, one man has ruled Sophia’s fantasies. The harmless obsession keeps her warm on the nights her double life starts to take its toll. She, unfortunately, gains his attention at the worst possible moment, when she’s in the middle of a dangerous job. Now, she’ll be forced to protect her heart along with her life of lies.

He wants more, including whatever she’s hiding beneath that demure façade.

As much as Sophia wants Viktor, she can never fully allow him in because her secrets aren’t her own. Viktor is determined to have all of his princess. Will they find a way to be together, or will her dangerous secrets tear them apart?


Donna review 4.5 stars

I don’t know what I expected, but this hot romantic suspense kept me turning the pages past my bedtime. Sophia’s dual life was given depth by her personal bodyguard, along with her friends and teammates. They added a realism to the story. Viktor was pure domineering alpha male, with glimpses of a tender side to round him out. They made a hot couple in this tantalizing romance. Secrets and intrigue abound in this erotically charged romance. This book has me anxious for the next in the series. Loved it!
