Protecting His Heart Synopsis:

When a mission goes sideways and leaves seasoned spy Arabella Nox with valuable information and a terrorist on her heels, she seeks out the one person on earth she hopes won’t betray her: the husband she hasn’t spoken to in years.

Felix Ibarra thought he’d put his past behind him, so he’s shocked when Arabella shows up naked in his bed, warning him of an imminent threat. Then, to make things worse, she gets a job with his firm, Wyn Security, behind his back. It’s clear there’s more to her story, but trust doesn’t come easily to either of them. 

Can Felix and Arabella work together to banish a mutual enemy, or will the deep emotions that tore them apart the first time be their undoing once again?

This sexy cat-and-mouse game between former lovers will keep you on your toes all the way to the surprising ending.

Sensuality Level: Sensual


“What was this one about?” She danced the tips of her fingers between his shoulder blades, spine, and neck.

“Death. It’s always about death.” There was grit in his voice—an utter distaste for humanity.

Silence lingered and she let it. There would be no pushing. He’d tell her.

He sat up so that his head was under her chin as they both lay in the bed. “I was driving. It was supposed to be a standard diplomatic point A to point B and back. Until it wasn’t. We were diverted to an unscheduled meeting and fell under fire with no cover. Malcolm lay there dead before we even knew what was happening. I tried to save him. I tried.”

A tear slid down her cheek. She’d heard about the attack in the southeastern part of Afghanistan the day after it happened, remembered the absolute fear of not knowing if he’d been one of the three who’d died that day. She’d never heard the full story—they hadn’t exactly been communicating the ups and downs of their lives in the last couple of years.

“We shot back and killed a bunch of those bastards but not before they got Wes. Then Brenn.”

Half of his team. No wonder it gave him nightmares.

“I’ve had a lot of fucked up days of my life.” His thumb stopped rubbing her skin and chills crept up her arms. “But that one, it stands out.”

“Today didn’t help, did it?” Getting ambushed must’ve stuck with his subconscious. Tonight was reason number 311 she should’ve stayed away and let him be. If only there’d been another way.

“Apparently not.”

“I’m sorry about your teammates.”

“This is what happens. I can’t seem to get away from it. They were killed not long after you were kidnapped, and that was it. I was done.”

She’d known the situation in Saudi Arabia hadn’t gone as planned with Safar, and that had royally sucked—it had taken forever for her ribs to heal—but she’d never actually considered how much it had affected Felix.

She softly kissed his temple. “I know you did everything you could in a bad situation.”

“It wasn’t enough.”

“It never is. Not for people who think they can save the world.”

The sweat on his brow was gone, the remnants of the past no longer visible. She hugged him as best she could with one arm around his shoulder and the other trapped against her belly, and kissed the top of his head.

“I know you miss parts of it. But I’m glad you’re out. I’m pretty sure you gave me high blood pressure.”

A breathy chuckle skidded across her chest. “Your sexy body is perfect. Always has been. Always will be.”

His head turned up to her, and she pressed her lips on his, letting them linger as she breathed him in then kissed him again. She let her cheek rest on the top of his head as she closed her eyes. The tender moments with Felix were few and far between, but always the most meaningful.

In the morning, her heart would be hardened, and she’d be all business.
