A Pride of Brothers: Rick
by Peggy Jaeger
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Elite bodyguard and P.I. Rick Bannerman's job is to protect. He doesn't get emotional with his clients, but when a woman from his past is threatened, his next job becomes personal.
Family lawyer Abigail Laine is the target of a client's vengeful husband, but refuses Rick's offer of protection. He walked away from her four years ago, and she swore to forget him.
Now her reluctance to accept his help could cost Abby her life.
“You’re really going to spend the night? Here?” she finally asked. “And every other night until Genocardi is caught.” She went stone still. “He doesn’t know where I live.” “You can’t be sure of that. Neither can I, so...” He lifted his hands, palms up. It was a wonder blood wasn’t seeping through her lips from the intense way she was biting down on her cheek. “Look.” He leaned a hip against the sink, folded his arms across his chest. “I know you think there’s no worry or danger to you from this guy. But in my professional opinion—and please remember what I do for a living—you can never underestimate someone who’s gone off the deep end like this guy has. He may not be targeting you, may have forgotten all about you, but I seriously doubt it.” She sighed, snuggled the cat closer, and buried her face in its fur. “Josh can assign someone who’ll keep you as safe as I can. But do you really want someone you don’t know following you around all day? Possibly for several days?” “God, no. I’d hate that.” “Then isn’t it better I’m the one? You know me. You can trust me. You do trust me, right?” Without hesitating, she replied, “Of course I do.” He nodded again, relieved by her answer. He pushed off the counter, took a few steps toward her, and then reached out a hand to rub the cat’s neck as she was doing. “I know this is hard for you,” he said, hiking his voice to be heard over Moonlight’s thunderous vocal vibrations. “Being invaded, having your privacy and your quiet life infringed upon. I’d be mad, too.” “I’m not mad,” she said. “Just...inconvenienced.” “Yeah, I get that. It won’t be for long, though, I’m sure. Your cop buddy will find Genocardi. As soon as the threat is gone, I’ll be out of your hair.” She stared at him for a moment over the cat’s head. “You might want to grab my law book again, Bannerman.” “Why?” “Your argument’s pretty solid on all levels. Almost lawyer-worthy.” “Now, there’s no need to be insulting, Abigail.” He pulled himself up to his full height and glared down his nose at her. He was pleased when she laughed, since it had been his intent. “Go on and do whatever you need to do. I’ve got stuff to do as well,” he told her. With one final glance at him, she moved from the kitchen, the cat still in her arms. I'm a #contemporaryromance writer who writes #RomComs about strong women, the families who support them, and the men who can't live without them. If I can make you cry on one page and bring you out of tears rolling with laughter the next, I've done my job as a writer! #Family and #food play huge roles in my stories because I believe there is nothing that holds a family structure together like sharing a meal...or two...or ten. Dotted with humor and characters that are as real as they are loving, I bring all topics of daily life into my stories: life, death, sibling rivalry, illness and the desire for everyone to find their own happily ever after. Growing up the only child of divorced parents I longed for sisters, brothers and a family that vowed to stick together no matter what came their way. Through my books, I've created the families I wanted as that lonely child. As a lifelong diarist, I caught the blogging bug early on, and you can visit me at peggyjaeger.com where I'm blogging about life, writing, and stuff that makes me go "What??!" daily. I'm a social media junkie! You can visit me at all these sites below, any day and I'll probably be there.
