The Ark Hotel Series, #3

Amparo Maddox is a freelance security expert who has no ties, no family, and travels the world to take on jobs protecting people and providing security. Her heart remains untouched until she is called to do a job for Shawn 'Shazam' Cole.

Shawn is a professional football player who has a psycho stalker who is leaving him white roses and breaking into his apartment. Amparo takes the job and gets the attention off of Shawn and on her by having them appear as lovers and staying at the infamous Ark hotel during their BDSM week. Hoping to draw out the stalker, Amparo does her job with Shawn a little TOO well, and starts to fall for Shawn. But the stalker just might have the upper hand.

This book is the third in the Ark hotel series, but despite the tag and inference, there were no BDSM scenes in this book. So for fans of the genre, you will be a tad disappointed, otherwise well written and an enjoyable story.

He hires her at once. Instead of dodging the pursuer, Amparo makes it a point to place the target on her back. Every opportunity for public displays of affection at functions all around town, she drags Shawn along. The white roses keep appearing. It’s now time to throw a wrench in the plans. The Ark Hotel, where every sexual fantasy is met, appears as a useful site for their next plan – but it might prove to be more than that.
