Just One Look
(originally published March 2007 in Harlequin Blaze #311 in mass market paperback and eBook)
For body double Tabitha Everheart, spending her days practically naked with gorgeous men should be easy. Sure it’s a poor imitation of the real thing but her short-lived disastrous marriage has left her gun-shy. When a literal bullet shatters her apartment window and she needs protection, sexy cop Warren Vitalis steps in. But Tabitha can only keep her distance from the irresistible bodyguard for so long, and soon passionate nights with Warren stir urges Tabitha thought had been forever tamped down. What they have together is hot—and very temporary. At least that’s what she tells herself…
