Ricky Lee has no plans of getting serious about anyone, but he will protect Toni Jean-Louis Parker. Not just because he's been hired to do so, but because it's the right thing to do. And if that means travelling around the country with one complicated She-jackal, dealing with chocolate-eating wild dogs, instigating trouble between his brothers, and having the most amazing sex he's ever had. Well, who said his job didn't have perks? Toni doesn't know how she keeps getting herself into these situations. But even she has to admit there is something about Ricky Lee Reed that she finds kind of interesting. and downright sexy. Now they just have to survive long enough to figure out if what they have is worth fighting for.
