Being called to bail out my step-daughter at a college party wasn’t a surprise. What I had to do to the a$$hole trying to take advantage of my sweet girl was.
It’s the first time I’ve had to end someone’s life to protect her honor, but it won’t be the last. I made a vow to protect Shelby with my own life when her mother died, and I always make good on my promises.
But there wasn’t anything in the vow I made about falling for her.
Now that she’s grown up, I can’t help the way she makes me feel when she looks up at me with innocence in those big green eyes.
My brothers and I will do whatever it takes to save her from the gritty streets we grew up on, but some people might think we’re the ones she needs saving from.
I’m determined to prove them all wrong.
We’ll stop at nothing to save her.
And no one can stop us from loving her.
