If you want someone found, Logan Gilbert is the man to call. It was easy enough to find his best friend's sister. Keeping her safe turns out to be more complicated. Someone clearly wants Tara Barclay dead. The question was who... and why?

 Tara thought her brother was dead. Now a man shows up claiming that Jason sent him, and someone keeps trying to kill her. She thinks she knows who might be after her, but as her brother's secrets start to unravel, Tara realizes that her handsome bodyguard might not be enough to keep her alive.

Thank you. 100 words was tricky but I'm pleased that it worked.

Love this first chapter! I was wondering if this would have made an excellent end to the chapter as you have both of them introduced - and boy, what an introduction! It sizzled - and we all need to catch our collective breath. Or at least I do.

This is a great story.  Normally I go for the Italian  or Greek  billionaire type of romance.  However, you have me hooked already! Great first chapter.

Terrific pitch!
                              I see the hooks: brother's best friend and bodyguard. They male for a steamy premise... Phew. -fans self-
