THE WRONG KIND OF MAN This arrogant, ill-mannered American was hardly the sort of man Princess Adele of Orlantha was used to encountering in her world of wealth and privilege. And yet Matt O'Brien was all that stood between her and the deadly conspiracy that threatened everything she held dear. Her only hope was a marriage—in name only—to her self-appointed "protector." But to be so very…intimate with this infuriating yet dangerously compelling man was almost more than she could bear—because their masquerade was turning into a passion that was all too real.

Storm Ellison is the sexiest man on two legs. The gorgeous young star of "Trapped on an Island," the hottest reality show on television, is instantly recognizable the moment he leaves his palatial mansion. Paparazzi follow him everywhere, leaving him no peace or privacy, selling his pictures to the tabloids, and cementing his reputation in the press as a slutty gay playboy. As Storm prepares to sign his first major movie deal, his manager decides he needs protection. What he doesn't expect, is to be attracted to the cold bastard who's now running his life. Balthazar Grant, freelance bodyguard, is a huge, handsome, rough and ready former Marine, trained by the best, and willing to step between Storm and anyone stupid enough to come at him. Always stoic and serious, Taz lends a deadly presence to Storm's entourage whenever he ventures out in public. Storm doesn't want a bodyguard, much less one who won't let him live his fast and loose lifestyle with impunity and he's certainly not one to be dictated to by an overconfident Marine who has opinions about everything including who he should hook-up with. When a deadly threat hits Storm's world, he's suddenly living his own reality show, only this one has an outcome which doesn't involve being voted off an island. Will Storm wake up before it's too late and will Taz be able to fight his attraction to the handsome young superstar while trying to convince him he's in very real danger? The pair will soon learn that reality is stranger than fiction.
