Lady Gwen Harrison moved to America to take over her sister-in-law’s elite matchmaking business. Almost a year later, she’s still struggling to find independence and love. She flirts with retired Marine Neil MacBain, head of her late father’s security team and essentially her bodyguard, but he doesn’t reciprocate her playfulness. She’ll have to make the first move. As their attraction heightens, a threat from Neil’s past looms. In order to keep Gwen safe, he must choose between risking his career, his life or his heart. (MONTLAKE, Aug., 388 pp., $12.95)
