Grayson ‘Grizzly’ Randall is on a hunt for the traitor who betrayed his MC. He never expected to find the traitor’s daughter cowering in a dirty motel bathroom. Piper is more trouble than she’s worth. Grizzly knows his choices are simple—kill her or cut her loose. He does the exact opposite and offers Piper his protection. Grizzly soon discovers that Piper is more than a mouse. She’s brave, fiery, and intoxicating. Grizzly experienced grief and loss before, but maybe it’s time for him to settle down again.
Piper Ayers has a target painted on her back. She never imagined being dragged into her father’s world or coming face-to-face with a terrifying biker covered in tattoos. But Grizzly is more than he seems. There’s fire under his cold exterior, a heart underneath his scars and ink. To survive, Piper must stick with Grizzly but what if Piper ends up getting her protector killed?
Grizzly grasped Piper's shoulder and hauled her to her feet, ignoring her weak protests. She tried to shove at him, to punch him, but it felt like she was hitting a brick wall. Grizzly finally tucked his gun in his holster and then pushed her against the wall. He pinned her wrists above her head, holding her in place. She bared her teeth at him.
“Let me go. I had nothing to do with my scummy father’s dealings,” she said.
“I thought you were a fragile little lamb at first, but you’re a feisty thing, aren’t you?” Grizzly asked.
Her heart hammered as he gazed down at her like she was something edible. Piper wasn’t sure what was better—being looked at like trash that needed to be disposed of or a potential prey. What truly bothered her was the way her body was reacting to his rough handling.
The shameful part of Piper liked being restrained by a powerful man like Grizzly. Hell, she could feel her nipples hardening under her sweatshirt. Not a good sign. She should be outright terrified, but Grizzly hadn’t killed her yet. He must want something else from her. Information? A chill went down her spine as knowledge lit his eyes.
“You’re coming with me,” Grizzly said. “Now we can do this two ways, easy or hard. If you comply, then there won’t be a problem. If you fight me, it’ll become messy.”
“I’m not an idiot. I can’t go head-to-head with a monster like you,” Piper said, giving him a defiant stare. “I’ll play nice as long as you do the same.”
He chuckled, and that sound shouldn’t have been so sexy, so male. Then to her shock, Grizzly actually released her.
