Stone Blackthorn is a reporter for the Ridgeway Times. He is all set to get some shots of the bride when suddenly the beast within sits up and takes notice. The more he watches her the more he wants her.
Marissa McRae is the daughter of the infamous gangster Hector McRae. She is about to be married to a man that makes her skin crawl all because of her father. Knowing she cannot go through with it she runs, straight into the arms of a stranger.
Stone is shocked when the bride begs for his help. One minute he is poised for a shot and the next he is driving the getaway car. The fear and desperation in her eyes is all the incentive he needs to keep going no matter the cost. He does not even know her but he is convinced that she is more special than any woman he has ever met. Marissa is running for her life with a man whose name she does not even know. So why does he make her feel more secure and safe than anyone ever has? After one amazing night with Stone, Marissa is hooked. She knows that her father will hunt her down, but what she does not know is that a beast is about to come to her rescue.
Shut off the phone and put out the DO NOT DISTURB sign. You do not want any interruptions with this one. Stone is the ultimate alpha male, strong, dependable, and a whole lot of wild thrown in for good measure. Even his name is hot. Who cares if he sheds? Marissa is no one’s pawn, not even her father’s. She puts her life on the line to protect Stone and is strong enough to accept who he really is. The chemistry between these two is intense and erotic. I was glued to my seat and loved it.
