He’ll guard her body all night long.

Former Marine Jude Wilde’s motto has always been “burn bridges and never look back,” so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they’re forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can’t ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker’s threats escalate to attempted murder, he’s left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend’s safe house in Key West, FL.

Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby’s resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body’s demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?

Each book in the Wilde Security series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Books like Tonya Burrows’ Wilde Nights in Paradise are why I love Entangled’s Brazen line. The repartee between the heroes and heroines always proves to be amusing but any light-heartedness is counteracted with serious issues that give an added layer of depth to the two protagonists. Such is the cas ...more

I went back and forth on this one, mainly because Libby was not taking her security seriously and the men in her life went overboard trying to control her. However, even with that being a pet peeve of mine, the author was able to make the story work out. I laughed more than I thought I would. And I ...more

Everyone has that one person in their past that they can't seem to forget about. The one that got away. The one that is the leading lady or leading male of each and every dream.

Of all the Books from Entangled that I've read recently (which is a lot!!) this is probably my favorite. I expected it to be your typical 2nd chance love story with a bitter woman. Well she was bitter but the story was so much more than that.

This is a good book one to a series. In fact, I surprised myself a little. I liked this more than I thought I would.

Finally. One of the best book I've ever read.
