Eric Wilde has always known that Piper Lane isn’t for him. She is his younger brother’s best friend…and probably more. But that hasn’t stopped Eric from wanting her. For longing for the one woman that he can’t have. Sure, he’s rich, successful—he’s built a security empire, and he’s got the world at his feet. Only he doesn’t have her.
He is the one man she needs the most.
Free-spirited Piper Lane has always considered Eric to be the enemy. He’s seemed to resent her, and the guy just flat-out makes her nervous. Every time she’s around him, she winds up doing something horribly embarrassing. But, this time…everything has changed. This time, he’s the one man she needs the most.
Something is stalking Piper.
A stranger has broken into Piper’s home twice, and she feels like someone is following her. Watching her every move. She needs a professional to help her—so enter Eric Wilde. He promises her protection, he promises to put his best investigators on her case, and he even moves her into his house. Suddenly, the guy who has always been the villain in her life…he’s now playing the role of hero.
Everything will change as the danger mounts.
And maybe Eric isn’t so bad, after all. The more time that Piper spends with him, the more she realizes that her feelings for Eric are far more complicated that she ever imagined. Desire explodes between them even as the danger deepens around her. Someone in the dark is targeting Piper, and he is determined that if he can’t possess her…then he will destroy her.
There is something about Cynthia Eden's writing that just draws me to her books. I can't help myself I just love them. She writes these hero's who are so alpha that you just can't help by feel protected. They are both kickass and marshmallow-soft on the inside. Well, at least toward the heroine. Everyone else is out of luck.
Protecting Piper is the start of her new Wilde Ways series. And if you ask me, and we know you did, it starts off with a bang! I totally loved it!
Poor Piper has a stalker and an overbearing protector. She scared silly about the stalker and not sure what to do with Eric. She's always thought of him as her best friend's brother. She really never thought that he liked her. She always felt worried about being around him. Silly girl! The man has the hots for you! Men are idiots!
As these two learn about each other they have to deal with her stalker and make sure he never gets Piper. I liked that most of the story is about them and them working out their feels for each other. The author adds enough of the stalker to keep the story moving and to add something to the story other than the relationship between Eric and Piper.
If you haven't yet tried Cynthia Eden here's the perfect series for you to start. It's a mix of romance and suspense. It will keep you wondering until the end while making you want more from this series.
