TEASER #2: Restrained Under His Duty


“Do you trust me?”

“Yes.” I place my hands over his, breathless. “Of course.”

“We’re going to get through this.”

“I know you’ll do whatever you can to help me, Ryder. I’m just not sure that it will be enough.”

His eyes flare, with . . . annoyance, irritation, possession . . . I’m not exactly sure what he’s feeling, when he says, “I asked you if you trusted me and you told me, yes. Was that a lie?”

“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.”
