Under his protection and in his bed…

For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.

Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.

The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.


"Soooo good! Love love love it. I thoroughly enjoyed Witness to Passion. I could tick every box for what makes me love a contemporary romance." --Geeks in High School

"If you are looking for a little action and suspense to go with a pretty stellar dirty talking hero, then Witness to Passion is definitely a book you should consider adding to your TBR. Naima Simone is an author new to me, and with the first instalment in her new Guarding Her Body series, the incentive to seek out and read more is very, very strong." --Claire Robinson, Goodreads

"Wow!! What a ride. Naima Simone knows how to write a romantic suspense!" --Aarati, Goodreads

"This is my first read from Naima Simone and I absolutely loved it! The story was awesome and the characters were brilliantly written. And the dialogue was hilarious!" --Elizabeth H, Goodreads
