Berrill ‘Bear’ Clayton is a beauty encased in steel. Her toughness isn’t an act, but it isn’t ‘all her’ either.
She distances herself from love and intimacy, clinging to the Alpha Girl persona she believes enables her to forget the times she was too weak to save the people she loved. Though her looks bely it, she’s felt incapable and…owned her entire life.
It’s just her luck to fall for a guy who seems set on owning everything he sees.
For Pope Apostolou, ‘ownership’ is about putting distance between himself and the time when he felt like nothing more than property. Meeting the fiercely independent Bear Clayton was a necessary soother for raw emotions stoked by the return of an old threat.
Pope believes that threat now has Bear in its crosshairs. It breaks his heart to discover she’s quietly torturing herself for a horrific night 6 years earlier-one that left 10 men dead-slaughtered after a night of debauchery…and betrayal.
In order to triumph over this new threat, Pope will need to show Bear that she can trust him.
Unfortunately, Bear has learned to equate trust with surrender-something she refuses to give to any man.
Pope would indeed want her surrender when her heart became the one thing he wanted to conquer.
