Now her reluctance to accept his help could cost Abby her life.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always loved a bodyguard trope. The fact that the hero and heroine know one another and have a past made this a must-write for me because I wanted them to have their HEA. Putting them in danger and having the reluctantly be together indefinitely was fun to write!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
In my previous WILL COOK FOR LOVE books, Abby Laine and Rick Bannerman made appearances in separate books. They have a single past- where they kissed on a balcony but Rick put a stop to anything further. Abby has always been the type of woman who carries a grudge, so when she needs a bodyguard and it turns out that person is Rick, well, these two just HAD to be put together!
“Right there.” She aimed her fork at him as if it were a spear. “Perfect example. You know I hate being called Abigail. I’ve lost count of the hundreds of times I’ve told you and you still do it, knowing it pisses me off. And”—she cut him off before he could speak— “your usual response is to lift your hands and say ‘and still’ when you’re called on it. Who does that? What kind of person persistently and purposefully annoys people?”
“So you’re saying I’m intentionally annoying?”
“Persistently, so. Yes. Makes the lawyer in me wonder why.”
Just the lawyer? “Any answers come to mind?”
“Care to share?”?
She placed her fork down next to her plate and regarded him across the table. “You really want to hear this? Because if you know anything about me, you know I’m truthful. I don’t hold back.”
Oh, he was sure she didn’t. And wouldn’t. Her tenacity was one of the things he’d first been drawn to.
That and her fabulous ass.
“I’m a big boy,” he said with a grin. “I can take it.
She took a sip of water first, her eyes trained on him the entire time. “Okay. If you really want to hear this.”
He waved his hand for her to continue.
“I think you use your cocky, aren’t-I-simply-too- witty attitude to keep people at a distance.”
