Protecting Madison is the most important job of my career as a bodyguard.
1) She’s my late boss’ daughter.
2) She has a beautiful little girl I’d lay down my life for in a second.
3) I never stopped loving her.
When I awoke from a coma eight years ago, permanently disfigured from a mission gone wrong, all I could think about was her. My boss told me she’d moved on and started a family. I tried to move on too, but I couldn’t. She was my first love…and my last.
When my boss is murdered, the company assigns me to protect her. All I have to do is move in next door and keep her safe. It should be easy, especially since she doesn’t even recognize me beneath all my scars.
But watching her reminds me of how beautiful she is. Talking to her makes me want to touch her.
I shouldn’t. I can’t. I don’t even look human anymore.
I’m a Beast, and I’m far more dangerous than I was when she knew me.
Everyone is hiding something, even the dead. My boss didn’t just lie to his enemies, he lied to the people who loved and trusted him.
He told Madison I’d died in that accident.
And he told me her baby wasn’t mine.
