Not all fairytales end in happily-ever-after…
Sebastian “Wolf” Wood. Former soldier. Medic. Loveable, loyal…and lethal. He knows better than anyone that appearances can be deceiving and he has no problem exploiting his cover-model good looks to get what he wants, especially when it’s for the success of a mission. He’s done it before, he’ll do it again—until the one mission where the tables get turned by a storybook beauty whose bite is worse than her bark and who leaves him trying to figure out what’s real—and what’s an illusion.
Peyton Richards is getting a second chance at her big break—a chance most people would kill for. But her excitement at making a comeback is overshadowed by her irrational attraction to the man hired to watch over her—a man who looks like he’d be more at home on a California beach than as a bodyguard. A man who seems to relish butting heads and irritating her at every turn while stealing kisses that leave her breathless. A man who’s entirely too comfortable in a glittering world where everyone is pretending to be someone else.
When a publicity stunt goes terribly wrong and it becomes obvious that someone wants Peyton out of the picture—permanently—it’s up to Sebastian to keep her safe. To do that, he needs to breach her defenses and show her that it’s what you can’t see that’s real—and if he fails, it’s only a matter of time before the game of fantasy and make-believe lures them into a nightmarish hell of lies, deceit…and death.
