All of her life, Cadence “Cade” Williams has been lied to…

With her ailing father on his deathbed, a whispered secret sends Cadence’s life into a tailspin. Determined to either confirm or debunk her father’s claim, she sets out on a mission to grow close to the only man with evidence to set things straight. To do that, Cadence earns a position in an elite security firm owned by her father’s old army buddy, Noah “Mac” Mackinley.

Mac is the only man who could hold the evidence to support her father’s claims…

But first, she must prove herself worthy of Mac’s trust and get close enough to find the truth. Her first mission is to watch over an eight-year old girl, Harley Clark.

Harley is not an ordinary girl. She’s the daughter of a rock star…

Despite her fragile appearance, Harley has tenacity and brilliance like nothing Cade has ever seen. To everyone’s surprise—including her own—Cade forms an unlikely friendship with the beautiful wallflower.

Her first assignment just became more interesting…

When Harley’s rock star father, Jax Clark, enters the scene, Cade can’t deny the instant attraction for the self-proclaimed bad boy. Tattoos, piercing eyes, and a raspy voice that sends thousands of fans into a screaming frenzy, he’s more than just a heartthrob. Worse, Jax starts to pay her more attention than she expects.

She’s faced with a choice—get lured in by the celebrity world and lose any chance of finding out the truth, or stick to the plan and avoid Jax at all costs to earn Mac’s trust.


Michelle‘s love for writing blossomed when her father gave her a diary. However, instead of recounting her daily life, she wrote stories of fictional people. Like most of her characters, she believes in Happily Ever After. Naturally, she finds harmony in writing romance.

An unabashed, self-proclaimed foodie, Michelle loves to try new food whenever she travels. She once had triple crème Brie and duck rillette for lunch on top of Grouse Mountain.  She enjoys watching foreign films and reading a good book by the fireside.

Michelle is an active member of RWA and several of its chapters. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and two kids.

Well, it took me a minute to figure out which way this story would go. Harley is the one who is being protected by Cade. Harley's dad is a rock star. The hot single rock star dad was interesting. He was learning on the go how to be a parent and famous rock star. In reality I think all parents are the same way with their first kid. I can't imagine getting full custody later in the child's life and trying to figure it out.

Cade came into this job for a reason. This had me guessing for a while. I didn't know if it was going to be criminal or family related. Then there were other options I considered.

I thought it was great how Cade went into this job and was there for Harley. She got to bond and help Harley come out of her shell. Sweet Harley was let down so many times, that this was a big accomplishment. I think anyone would feel doubt when being passed around. I feel like she was made to be the grown up in some situations. Sometimes parents don't realize how the actions tend to hurt their kids.

Cade managed to get into hearts. I think sometimes when you least expect more opportunities can arise. There are consequences to options. We all just have to weigh our options and see if the pros outweigh the cons.

I liked that you get to see in the bands life and their family life. There are the single band members and the ones who believed in relationships. I also liked that little Harley still had hope when she had little hope to begin with in the story. She starts to open up with such a kind heart.
