Those were the last, tearful words Gina Castillo spoke to me thirteen years ago. It killed me to go, but I was getting sucked further and further into a criminal lifestyle. I wanted more for myself. For her. So I left for the Army, knowing she'd be better off without me.
Now I'm back: a better, stronger man, and Gina has grown into a beautiful woman. One who despises me.
Soon I discover that all the truths I thought I left behind had been lies, and that my leaving caused nothing but heartache and destruction. Now, I have to find a way to earn the forgiveness of the woman I'm coming to love.
When my boss, and fellow Dominant, assigns me to be the bodyguard to a submissive, every protective instinct inside me rises. Especially when it turns out to be Gina I'm protecting. There's nothing I won't do for her, including destroy the enemy who threatens us both.
