Under his protection and in his bed...
For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her
looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different.
Fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing
the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local
crime family... Yeah, birthdays suck.
Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-
turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby
sister's reckless - and gorgeous - best friend. Yet when her life
is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on
protecting her...even if she objects.
The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long
denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But
even as layers - and clothes - are peeled away, danger closes in.
Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love...if they
survive long enough to see it.

Snakes and little rodents. Mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils, etc - I dislike them
all. Their little teeth are so sharp and they're just gross. My brother has
ferrets and he and his wife let them crawl all over them and their house
*shudders* ugh. I can't handle it. (Sorry people who love these things -- I
promise I wouldn't hurt them, just avoid them :))

What scares me to death is the one second I don't know where my child is. She could be in the bathroom, but if I don't know she is my heart races and I become frantic. I was with my grandmother one day in Walmart and my daughter was 4. I turned my back to look at shoes and when I turned around my grandmother told me she didn't know where my daughter went. Scariest time of my life. The store actually had to call a Code Adam. If you don't know what that is its a special command over the intercom that immediatley lets employees know that a child is missing. After shutting all the doors and all employees began to walk the aisles i was running around like crazy. A woman found her after about 7 minutes. I have never been so scared in my life! She is eight now, but i still have mommy panick attacks if I even think she is missing for a second.

I have a fear of heights. I fell off of a hillside as a
kid (the flying was fun the landing not so much so now I
get awful vertigo where heights are concerned. Still
love to fly though (go figure) my husband humors me by
doing things like going to the top of the GW monument and
taking a picture so I won't have to do it and won't miss
(Donna Antonio 10:57am June 15, 2015)
Candace, I TOTALLY feel you on that! Isn't that the
scariest feeling in the world? I've had that happen to me
with my son, and even now, when my daughter goes into the
bathroom at WalMart, I stand at the door and make her
talk to me. LOL!! Weird, I know, but I'm willing to put
up with being labeled the Weird Mommy if she's safe and
accounted for. Of course, she's like, Mooooommmmmyyyy!!
Buck up, girl!! :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by, Candace!! *fist bump*
(Naima Simone 11:07am June 15, 2015)
Hi, Donna! *waving*
LOL!! It's all fun 'n games until the landing, right?
When we visited Chicago a couple of years ago, it was too
windy to go up to the top of the Sears tower. I was all
like, "Aaaaw, daaaang-uh" but inside I was doing the
Electric Slide! LOL!! No thanks! Your husband rocks!
Hahahahah!! That's a cool compromise I wouldn't have
Thank you SO much for coming through, Donna!
(Naima Simone 11:09am June 15, 2015)
Snakes! Enough said..... Can't even think about them
without wanting to stand on my chair, desk, highest
possible point I can safety get to, without my fear of
heights kicking in....
(Cypress Tucker 11:13am June 15, 2015)
Hugs to you Candace and Donna. I would be paranoid for
I keep thinking Spiders are so cute Naima....so cute.
LOL. My fear is filthy, disgusting snakes. My husband has
predicted our future son or daughter will need a snake
for a pet.
(Stacy Reid 11:21am June 15, 2015)
LMAO!! Double whammy! Cypress, my parents are BOTH scared
of snakes. Not like my phobia with spiders, but they hate
them! My father once saw a snake slide under his back
porch, and he didn't use the back door or go into the
backyard for daaaaays!! LOL!! I'm not gonna lie,
though...I saw Snakes on a Plane, and *shudder* I almost
had a fear of snakes after seeing that movie! So, yeah, I
Thank yooouuu for coming by and dishing with me,
(Naima Simone 11:22am June 15, 2015)
Stacy, nooooooooooooooo!!! They're freaks, I tell ya!
Freaks!! I-I-I can'tttttt-uuuh. See? You have me
stuttering right now! LMAO!! I can definitely get the
fear of snakes but they don't trip me out like the
freaks-that-shall-not-be-named. But, uh, if my kid rolled
up in my housee with a spider for a pet....both the
spider AND the kid would be out on the front porch. Just
Thanks for stopping by, Stacy!!
(Naima Simone 11:24am June 15, 2015)
I'm with you on the hate of spiders, Naima! Maybe not as
extreme, but I still need the hubby to come kill them for
me. LOL One other creature that I despise even worse is
the Palmetto Bug. Or as we like to call them around here,
the Water Bug. Gah! They freak me out! Roaches should NOT
grow that big or have WINGS! One landed in my hair once,
and after it was over, I broke down and cried as if I'd
just survived an armed hostage situation. Yes, they're
that awful! We all have our issues. lol
(Jessica Lee 11:45am June 15, 2015)
LMAO!! Jessica, we have water bugs, too. Now, I'm
originally from NJ where we have regular roaches, not
primordial, ancient scarabs masquerading as roaches!
They. Freaking. Fly!! That's just wrong. I remember the
first time I saw one after moving south. I was like
WTF???!!!!! And they don't die easily. It's like you have
to throw a brick at it to kill it! LOL!! I think I need
another cup of coffee...Irish coffee...Snicker!
Thank you so much for coming through, Jessica!!

Spiders for me, they don't have to be big and they are so
disturbingly fast. Makes my skin crawl just thinking about
(G. Bisbjerg 12:20pm June 15, 2015)
Aaaay-men, G.! For me, the size doesn't matter at all.
Like, at. All. A couple of weeks ago there was one in the
bedroom, and my husband came in to kill it, and that
little--not so little actually!--jumped! Juuuuumped!
Nope. Nada. Nyet. It was FAST!! If he hadn't got it, I
was going to have a sleepover in the car! LOL!! Imagine
that show for the neighbors!
Thanks for stopping by, G.!! *waving*
(Naima Simone 12:36pm June 15, 2015)
My fear is not of heights, but of falling... I love rollercoasters, but can not stand ferris wheels.. ladders and I do not see eye to eye... I cling like a monkey just trying to get up and down a few steps... I am sure I make a funny sight...
(Colleen Conklin 1:44pm June 15, 2015)
Hey girl!!! Spiders aren't only ugly...they are small and have lots of hairy
legs and move really fast...they'll scramble up a pant leg and kill you before
you can say 'EEEEEEEEEK'! Hate them! Oh...and heights....when I look
down I get this insatiable compulsion to jump. Go figure...so I need to get
my hands on Witness fast! I need the stress relief!!
(Josie Matthews 1:47pm June 15, 2015)
Spiders including Daddy long legs and closed in spaces
(Eva Millien 2:04pm June 15, 2015)
Oooh, Colleen, I feel ya on that! I refuse to climb
ladders! I always have this fear of falling backwards--
doesn't help that I'm clumsy as all get out! Even when my
hubby climbs them to clean the gutters, I have to go in
the house because I get on his nerves with the noises and
comments I make. LOLOL!!
Thank yoooou for stopping by and sharing, Colleen! :-D
(Naima Simone 2:08pm June 15, 2015)
Okay, Josie, I had to take a moment to purge my mind of
the mental images you dumped there!! *shudder* LOLOL!! I
see you understand PERFECTLY why I hate the abominations.
Like, there are certain countries I refuse to visit
because of the spiders there. Australia? Love ya! But
I'll watch pictures of you on the television and in
books. Nope. Discovery channel's Top 10 spoiled it for me
forever! Josie, make sure you read Witness to Passion in
a height-free zone! LOLOL!!
Thank you for coming byyyyyy!!
(Naima Simone 2:11pm June 15, 2015)
My husband receives the most vicious stink-eyes when he
tries to LOGICALLY explain to me that Daddy Long Legs
aren't spiders...Just kill it and save the science lesson
for later, sir! LMAO! Aaaargh! Now, the hubby detests
closed in spaces. So imagine if we were in a tight
squeeze and a spider wheedled down between us. Talk about
two cats in a bag shadow-boxing! LOLOL!!
Thank you SOOO much for coming through, Eva!!
