Lancelot, a corner of her mind decided. A knight in shining armor.
Then she remembered the stalker, and her smile faded. Voldemort was at the far set of doors, she was at the near set, and Lancelot was at the exit in the middle of the car.
Please, she wanted to whisper to Lancelot. Help me. Please.
Behind him, Petro’s look-alike leaned into view, and Gemma froze. Her alarm must have shown, because Lancelot’s smile vanished, and his nostrils flared as he spun to face the stalker. Everything about his stance bristled with power.
The stalker’s expression changed too, and he and Lancelot stood facing off like a couple of gorillas. They didn’t actually rage and beat their chests, but they did give off serious vibes. Vibes packed with testosterone, anger, and…something she couldn’t quite define. A raw, elemental force that made the air around their shoulders shimmer.
They were so still, it was frightening. The orange-red hue of the stalker’s eyes intensified, and he balled his hands into fists.Lowe, Anna. Fire Maidens: London (Billionaires & Bodyguards Book 2) . Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.
“Rebel with a cause” Gemma Archer flees Boston one step ahead of a creepy stalker. Now she’s in London, trying to build a new normal — and absolutely, positively not getting involved with any men. That is, until an irresistible stranger prowls into her life. Liam is a sweet, sexy modern-day knight who sparks her sizzling desires. The problem? He’s as loony as some of her relatives. Dragons? Lion shifters? Werewolves? The poor man really seems to believe the tales he spins.
Liam Bennett is fresh out of the military and doing his best to adjust to civilian life. But fitting in was never his forte as a shifter of mixed blood. He’s part lion — a member of London’s most noble family — and part rogue, with “undesirable” dragon blood. When the Guardians of London hire him to help maintain law and order, Liam jumps at the chance to prove himself. Soon, he discovers nothing is as it seems — not among his allies, enemies, or even his own family. The only thing he can be sure of is the danger Gemma is in.
A deadly foe has stalked Gemma for thousands of miles, and Liam has no choice but to spirit away his destined mate to his ancestral dragon home — the remote castle in Wales he’s been avoiding for years. But hiding out is not enough. Can Liam and Gemma survive cunning enemies and the deceptions of the past?
