As a writer, Lise Barton is used to coming up with wild scenarios for her characters, but the one that's playing out for her right now is no fiction--it's frighteningly real. Someone is stalking her, someone who knows where she lives and what she does. Someone who has even threatened her family--her brother, his wife, and their precious baby girl. Lise isn't about to let someone hurt them, so she packs up and leaves Texas for the anonymity of Seattle. And then the threats start again. . .
Joshua Watt's mission is simple: Go to Seattle and bring Lise home for Thanksgiving or he'll never hear the end of it from his sister. It's not like "Aunt Lise" to stay away from their adorable niece, and Joshua's pretty sure he's the reason for it. He's spent months trying to forget the taste of her lips, the feel of her soft hair in his fingers. Yeah, okay, he wants her--badly--but family comes first. But the minute he sees the fear in Lise's eyes, his survival instincts kick in. The former Army Ranger isn't about to let some creep terrorize an innocent woman--not on his watch. He's going to do what it takes to protect Lise and try to keep his personal feelings out of it. Because if there's one thing he's learned, it's that sex and work don't mix. Not ever. So far. . .

SummaryAdd a Summary
Joshua "Wolf" Watt has come to Seattle to bring her home for Thanksgiving. His sister is married to Lise's brother, and so he knows how much family means to Lise. Because of a passionate kiss they shared, he's convinced she ran to escape their intense attraction, and is determined to set her straight. But when he finds her afraid in her own home, his instincts tell him something else is going on, and he's not about to let anything happen to her.
Lise is wary when she first sees Joshua in her apartment. She remembers how it felt to be in his arms, how strong her reaction is to him, and it scares her. She doesn't want to lose herself to another person and she's certain that's exactly what would happen with Joshua. But she also needs help, and as a trained soldier, Joshua can protect her, along with his trusted friends Hotwire and Nitro. But will her be able to protect her from her own feelings?
Ready is a combustible mix of suspense, danger, and sexual tension that will leave you breathless. Lise is a woman who loves what she does, and cherishes the solitude it brings to her world. While she seemed shy and reserved, she houses a wealth of strength and passion that has yet to be tested. Joshua is just the man to test those qualities. Living his own solitary world, he has seen and done things no one should ever have to experience, and can't believe love exists for someone like him. But he can't ignore the feelings Lise brings out in him, and uses their forced seclusion to explore those feelings. However when this assignment is over, will he be able to let her go?
