Evidence of Attraction

By: Lisa Childs

From investigating the evidence

To becoming a killer’s target

Wendy Thompson is used to investigating crime scenes—not being put in peril herself! But once a criminal threatens her life, Wendy enters the protective custody of longtime workplace crush Hart Fisher. Having him guarding her is distracting, to say the least, especially when passions flare. But as Hart tracks the underworld kingpin endangering Wendy’s life, they must decide between love—and safeguarding their lives...





She’d already fallen for Hart Fisher. Long ago...

Even before he’d saved her life over and over.

She was helpless to fight her feelings any longer. She was helpless to fight the passion that overpowered her. She’d nearly lost him—nearly lost her opportunity to ever be this close to him. When he laid her down on a bed, she clung to him, pulling him down on top of her like he’d been that night he’d sneaked into her room.

Their legs tangled, and she felt the evidence of his passion. She moaned and arched against him.

“Wendy...” he murmured as he tried to ease back—away from her.

She might have let him go—if she didn’t see the desire on his face, which was flushed, his eyes glittering. He wanted her, too.

She moved her hand between them, over the fly of his worn jeans. His breath hissed out between his clenched teeth.

“You’re killing me,” he murmured.

She shook her head. “No. I don’t want that to happen. I want you...”

Alive.

 Dear Reader,

I’m excited to bring you another story about the Bachelor Bodyguards! If you read Guarding His Witness, you know that the Payne Protection Agency has a dangerous new assignment. Drug kingpin and killer Luther Mills has sworn out a contract against everyone who can put him behind bars—where he deserves to be—for the rest of his life. Fortunately, the police chief brought in the Payne Protection Agency to make sure nobody is hurt before the trial.

In Evidence of Attraction, he ramps up his efforts to get his charges dismissed by trying to have the evidence against him destroyed. But despite the threats crime scene investigator Wendy Thompson has been receiving, she is too committed to her job and justice to compromise either. Bodyguard Hart Fisher has his work cut out for him, though. To prevent Luther’s leak in the police department from finding out the chief is on to them, Hart has to pose as Wendy’s boyfriend. When Wendy begins to bond with the single dad’s young daughter, Hart has to keep reminding himself it’s just an assignment—maybe the most dangerous one of his life.

Hope you enjoy this latest installment of Bachelor Bodyguards!

Happy reading!

Chapter 1


Lose the evidence or lose your life...

That was the first threat Wendy Thompson had received, tucked behind the windshield wiper on her car. When she’d seen the slip of paper, she’d thought it was a flyer for a new restaurant or a dry cleaner. Of course, as an evidence tech, she’d processed the paper for prints. The couple of very smudged partials she’d recovered had been insufficient for her to match in AFIS, the Automated Fingerprint Identification System.

The next threat she’d received a few weeks later had been a phone call, the voice of the caller a hoarse, unidentifiable whisper. Lose the evidence or lose everything and everybody you love...

She shivered as she replayed the call in her head as she had so many times since receiving it two days ago. Even though she hadn’t recognized the caller’s voice, she knew who was behind the threats. She knew which ballistics and DNA reports, despite all the cases she handled, that someone didn’t want making to trial. Because she knew that, she also knew the threats weren’t idle.

She hadn’t slept since receiving that call, and she worried she wouldn’t sleep tonight, either. She had been lying awake in the dark for hours. She’d already kicked off the blankets, but now that she was shivering, she pulled them back up over her panties and the oversize T-shirt she wore as a nightgown. Maybe she should shut the window, but it was a few feet away, so she would have to walk across the creaky floor to reach it. The noise might awaken her parents, who weren’t used to someone else being in the house.
