About YOUR FIERCE LOVE
The strong and sexy Blake Bennett is downright irresistible. And Clara Abernathy is doing everything she can to resist his charm.
After spending her life in group homes, Clara yearns for the love and warmth of a true family. With the Bennetts treating her like their own, she can't possibly fall for Blake. That would be crossing a line...
But when Clara needs a temporary place to live, and she accepts Blake’s offer to move next door to him, things escalate. Suddenly, she’s not only supposed to resist the man who’s hell-bent on having her, but the TV station she works for is determined to dig up some dirt on the Bennett family.
Blake knows family friends are off-limits, and Clara is more off-limits than anyone. But Clara’s sweetness and sass fill a hole in him he wasn’t even aware of. Soon, he finds himself gravitating toward her, willing to do anything to make her happy.
Blake enjoys bending the rules—much more than following them, but will bending this one be taking it too far?

“I have an idea.” He pulls himself to his full height, which I estimate to be at six foot two or three. Despite his height, he appears strong, not massive. His muscular build and tapered waist make him look athletic. Scratch that. They make him look the definition of sexy and sinful.
“Do tell, because I’m completely out of good ones.”
“The apartment next to mine above the bar is empty.”
It takes a moment for his meaning to register. Blake owns a bar, and while I did know he owns the entire building and lives on the upper floor, I had no idea there were two apartments there, but it makes sense. The building is huge. There’s just one hitch in this plan. Considering the size and location....
“I don’t think I can afford that kind of rent.”
“I wouldn’t charge you.”
This stabs at my pride. I make it a point to take the chances that are given to me, but this feels like charity. I deliberate my answer for a moment because I don’t want to come off as ungrateful when he’s going above and beyond to help me.
“I wouldn’t feel comfortable with that, Blake.”
“Look, that place is empty anyway, and I’d never rent it out.”
“I don’t want neighbors,” he says simply. “You’re a friend, that’s different. And it would only be for twelve weeks tops.”
Emotions clog my throat, but I muster a smile. Even though the Bennetts have been a constant in my life for the past two years, I’m still surprised every time they offer to help me. Still, this doesn’t feel right. As if sensing my doubts, he adds, “You can pay me what you’re paying for rent now.”
“That’s more reasonable, even if not fair to you.”
“It’s fair.” His eyes crinkle as he offers me a wide smile. “Now, since the kids seem peaceful, let’s return to the realm of grown-ups.” He leads me away, resting one hand on the center of my back, splaying his fingers wide.
“Do you want to come see the apartment?”
“Sure. When do you have time?”
“Tomorrow would be good since it’s Sunday, but I’ll probably sleep like the dead after this. Monday? Before happy hour begins at the bar?”
“Deal. And Blake? Thank you. You’re the one saving my bacon now. Big time.”
His fingers press gently into my back, and he leans in dangerously close. “I’ll be a fun neighbor, I promise.”
