Bodyguard Clay West wasn't happy about his latest
assignment: protecting a movie star. But seven-year-old
Gracie Bryant needed his help and he intended to keep the
adorable kid safe. Her mother, Libby, was another story.
The drop-dead stunner made him ache, but he hid his
attraction, especially since Libby seemed like a typical
stage mother misusing her child to attain fame and fortune.
And yet, as Clay witnessed a mother's vulnerability and
discovered the heart beneath Libby's smooth facade, this
born-and-bred cowboy rethought his mission. This could be
more than a life-and-death assignment for Clay. This could
be his destiny.
