“No, of course not.”
He leans in and drops his head, his eyes right in line with mine. “No matter if that video gets out, Hadley, we’re going to deal with this. You will not face this alone.”
We are around two weeks away from the release of Restrained Under His Duty, squee! From now until release day I will be sharing sexy book teasers with you, so check the blog daily or make sure you follow me on social media.

She pushes against them.
