Betrayed


Giveaway Alert!

When secrets turn into lies…

Former DEA agent Angelo Gonz├ílez’s final undercover operation exploded in a betrayal he’ll never forget or forgive. He’s moved on. As one of Atlanta’s Finest, providing personal security for the rich and famous, Angelo is living his best life—until he has to play fake boyfriend to one of their clients. Not just any client. A client who stirs something so sensually intense inside him, he’s not sure he can fake anything. 

Singing sensation Zenobia Westfield’s troubled past and poor judgment, especially with men, nearly destroyed her life. Music saved her, but now her safety is in jeopardy, forcing her to seek personal security. Angelo is more than she expected. Dangerously sexy. Fearless. Attentive. The attraction sizzling between them is impossible to ignore, but her track record with men has her treading lightly.

When the threat against Zenobia escalates, Angelo will stop at nothing to protect her. But lies and treachery come to the forefront. Will another betrayal destroy their newfound love? Or will Angelo realize in time that Zenobia is a woman worth fighting for?

Excerpt:
Mr. Tall, Gorgeous and Downright Sexy was dressed completely in black. James Bond and Idris Elba in a tuxedo had nothing on this man. His tailored suit enhanced his ultra-fit body to perfection, showing off a wide chest and broad shoulders that tapered down to a narrow waist. The shirt and tie, a glorious shade of onyx, only added to the sophisticated ensemble.
Zenobia glanced at the other man, almost as handsome, standing nearby and dressed exactly the same. Good Lord. Was this how they sat around the office? Looking like sex on a stick waiting to be chosen by a client?
But it was Angelo who kept snagging her attention. Those eyes. Dark as the night sky, his sharp, assessing gaze took her in as though seeing straight to her soul. Ashton said that he’d called ahead, but Angelo stared at her like he couldn’t believe she was standing in his presence. It was safe to assume that he was just as surprised to see her as she was to see him.
Ashton cleared his throat loudly. “Have you two met?” He looked from her to Angelo, then back to her again.
Neither responded. Silence stretched for what seemed like eternity before Angelo finally said, “We haven’t been formally introduced.” He slowly moved toward her, watching Zenobia with the intensity of a lion zoning in on its prey and planning an attack.
She tried not to fidget under his perusal, but those eyes… His mesmerizing gaze rooted her in place, stole her breath, and practically had her panting. Which was a first. Definitely a first.
He stopped within inches of her, close enough to entice her with the scent of his cologne, a mixture of bergamot and a hint of citrus. Damn. He smelled as good as he looked, and her entire body heated at his nearness.
His eyes narrowed and he now studied her with a slight tilt of his head as if trying to figure out something. He reached up to remove her sunglasses and Zenobia stiffened, then stepped back on reflex. Her heart was already pounding erratically, and every nerve in her body went on high alert.
“Relax, sweetheart,” he said gently. His hypnotic voice, smooth as butter, sent a shiver scurrying up her spine. “I’m not going to hurt you.”
