About An Indecent Longing:
Dorrie Haverstick is the one woman Ian Keller wants with a burning passion…and can’t have. Her connection to the man responsible for his father’s death makes her poison. That doesn’t make him want her any less.
Dorrie’s life is filled with secrets. Her beloved father runs the Russian crime family in Philadelphia but keeps her existance a secret. To acknowledge her would put her in constant danger and destroy her reputation as a physician. But his money funds her medical practice and she’s the on-call doctor for his men.
Decorated vet Ben Shaw knows his cousin Ian’s transition from the shadowy world of black ops into regular life has been difficult. But when he sees Ian’s interest in Dorrie, he sees Ian’s salvation in her eyes. There’s only one problem: Ben falls hard for the quiet, driven Dorrie.
Does Ben take Dorrie for himself? Or does he step back and wait for Ian to make his move? Either way, someone’s on the outside. Unless they can agree on one indecent solution…
Get Your Copy:
Ben Shaw heard his cousin’s sharp orders through his earpiece and immediately searched for the woman Ian had indicated.
He found her kneeling on the floor across the room. “On her. But what—”
“No buts.” Ian sounded cold, controlled. “Do it.”
Ben trusted his cousin with his life but they’d been hired to do a job. Right now, Ian was hustling that job out the door and into a waiting car. A car Ben should be driving.
“Ian, what the hell’s going on?”
“Can’t explain now. I’ve got the client. I’ll take him back to the hotel. Don’t need you for that. Make sure she’s okay. Nothing happens to her.”
Since Ian was more than capable of shepherding their client back to his hotel, Ben started to make his way across the room. “Who is she?”
“Her name’s Dorrie. Tell her I sent you. No, wait. Just let me talk to her muscle. Don’t let her out of your sight until she’s safe at home.”
Now Ben was more than intrigued. “You’re the boss.” Which he wasn’t. He and Ian were equal partners, but Ben couldn’t resist the occasional jab.
He reached the woman’s side in seconds and, as he dropped to his knees at her side, his gaze narrowed at the blood covering her hands and arms.
“Fuck. Are you hit?”
She spared him a quick glance but immediately dismissed him. “Blank, I need my bag from the car.”
The big guy beside her shook his head. “No fucking way.”
“Now. Blank, she’s going to die. I need my bag.”
The big guy’s jaw locked and he sized up Ben, clearly trying to decide if he could trust him.
So he tried to make it easier. “Ben Shaw. Ian Keller sent me.”
The woman’s head snapped around and she stared at him through wide eyes, her mouth open for seconds before she snapped it closed. But her hands never faltered as she applied pressure to the leg of the wounded woman.
“What did you—” She shook her head. “Doesn’t matter. Blank. My bag.”
Ben turned to the big man by her side, but he remained exactly where he was.
“Ian.” Ben knew his cousin hadn’t turned off their comms. “I need a reference.”
“Give your ear piece to Blank.” Ian’s voice practically bit through his link.
Ben dug out his earpiece and handed it over.
The guard stuck it close to his ear and barked, “Keller, what the fuck?” Then he fell silent for several seconds until finally he nodded and handed the ear piece back to Ben.
The big guy stood. “I’ll be back with your bag. You go nowhere without him. You.” He pointed at Ben. “Anything happens to her, you better hope you’re dead.”
Then he took off at a dead run.
