Herding Cats by Sabrina York New Release and GIVEAWAY
By Sabrina York
A Hot SEALs/Stone Hard SEALs
The scorching sequel to Guard Dog
It’s insane to want him, this beautiful, strong, sexy man. Not
just because her hot bodyguard is tasked with herding her safely through the
exotic night markets of Hong Kong. And not just because she’s his boss. But
because they are worlds apart. What they have can only be a fling. It can’t
But Garrett has other ideas.
It was a relief to get Catherine into another cab and head back
to their hotel, but Garrett knew better than to relax. At least until they
reached sanctuary. And even then, he would stay on alert.
This event had changed things, shifted them away from a standard
protection op onto the offensive. “I’ll stay with you tonight.” God, it was
hard keeping his tone casual.
Her head whipped around and she gaped at him. “What?”
“You cannot be alone.” Her horrified expression gutted him. He
forced a laugh. “Don’t worry. I’ll sleep on the couch.” And thank God her suite
had a sitting room. But he would have made a pallet on the floor if it hadn’t.
“I don’t need company.”
“You need protection.”
“No one is coming into my room.”
“Do you know that for certain? Are you willing to bet your
life?” Because it could be that, exactly.
Her determination faltered. She nibbled her lip. He had to look
He wanted to nibble that lip. And more.
“In the event someone does try to get to you, I will be there.”
She huffed a sigh. “Oh, all right.” She was as petulant as a
little girl, but he sensed some hint of relief in her tone. No doubt, despite
her stalwart mask, she was scared.
She should be.
They pulled up to the hotel and Garrett exited the cab first,
scanning the curved drive. There were far too many people standing around.
“Come on,” he said, taking her hand and guiding her from the cab, across the
drive and into the spinning doors of the hotel.
The lobby was busy too. Garrett quartered the space as he urged
her toward the elevators. He was used to her turning heads—of course she would,
she was drop-dead gorgeous—but at this moment it set his nerves on end.
A man sitting on a couch reading a newspaper captured his
attention. The look in his eye was too sharp. Garrett quickly memorized his
features. And there, another man, leaning against the counter of the
registration desk…too calculating.
The wait for the elevator took forever. When it finally arrived,
Garrett ushered her in. Perhaps with a little too much force. She glared at
He ignored her ire. An older couple stepped on the elevator with
them, chattering about their evening and then, to Garrett’s annoyance, the
newspaper man did as well. He glanced at the panel and pushed the button for
the floor below Catherine’s.
Garrett knew, just knew, this man was not staying at this hotel.
He reached forward and pushed a random button. When the elevator stopped on
that floor, he ushered Catherine out.
Miraculously, she did not protest. But she did ask, when the
elevator shushed closed, “Why did you do that?”
He shrugged. “Just a precaution.” And he needed time to prepare.
In the event they arrived at the penthouse floor to find that man awaiting
them. He called another elevator and pulled out his SIG Sauer, just to be safe.
Catherine’s eyes widened and she eeped, but she said nothing
The ride to their floor took moments. Garrett gestured for
Catherine to stay back as he checked out the hall. To his relief, there was no
one there. He quickly ushered her to the double doors of her suite and, again,
motioned for her to wait. It took less than a minute for him to clear the room,
but the entire time, his pulse slammed in his veins. He hated leaving her
outside while he checked the closets and the bathroom, but it was safer.
When he was finally certain there was no one there, he pulled
her inside and locked the door.
Finally she was safe.
