About Survival Instinct:The voices in her head have decided to kill her. Most people joke about hearing voices in their heads. For Chloe Jeffries, they’re real. And as the creative force behind one of the most popular shows on television, she has used the constant flood of voices in her mind to her advantage: fuel for entertainment. But now one of the voices has decided it wants Chloe all for itself. Ex-Special Forces soldier Shane Westman just wants to make it back to Wyoming to begin to heal from the horrors of war. The last thing he needs, even as a favor for a good friend, is to take on bodyguard duty of a flighty television writer. But once he does, he realizes there are threats at play he doesn’t understand. And the woman who has somehow begun to thaw his frozen heart is in desperate danger from a menace they can’t see, but is always close. The voice that will never allow Chloe to escape alive.

looked over at her creative team. The Days
End team was tired. Worried. The stalker had seen to that. Not to mention
all the new bodyguards had definitely put a damper on the creative energy
usually surrounding the show. But the new guy coming in definitely wouldn’t.
“The studio is sending in a security expert to
coordinate security around here and to investigate our friendly neighborhood
stalker,” Chloe told them. “We’re supposed to give him access to anything he
needs. I’ve been assured that he will fit in just fine and will not hamper our
artistic energy in any way. We won’t even know he’s here.”
“Like that guy
walking towards us who definitely doesn’t scream I’m-a-Navy-SEAL or anything?”
Travis’ eyebrow was raised so far it looked like it had found a new home in his
Chloe stared at the
man in question. Didn’t seem able to turn away from him even if she wanted to.
His long legs were encased in perfectly creased khaki pants, a collared light
blue shirt tucked in—also perfectly—at the waist. His broad shoulders were
covered in a tailored suit jacket under which Chloe was willing to bet all of
this year’s salary lay a shoulder holster for a gun. His posture screamed
military. The way he carried himself — the set of his shoulders and lift of his
But impressive as
his body was, it was his face that drew her more. There was nothing pretty
about him. His face was rugged to the point of being harsh. His jaw already
holding some stubble even though it wasn’t even yet lunchtime. And she had no
doubt Mr. Military Man had shaved this morning, unquestionably during his
perfect morning routine. His dark hair was cut close to his head, as if he
couldn’t quite decide whether to keep it military short or go for a more
His eyes were
hidden behind aviator sunglasses, but Chloe knew he saw everything. Knew he saw
her and that if she stopped him right at this moment, blindfolded him and asked
him to tell her where everyone was, he’d be able to do so with astounding
accuracy, even though there were more than a dozen people milling around that
he hadn’t looked at directly.
This man was the
epitome of cool, calm, and collected. She could feel the former radiating off
him. Wanted to close her eyes and sink towards him. Her brain, always under
such constant onslaught with the thoughts of others, and particularly the one
voice that had been searing through her mind so agonizingly lately, wanted to
bask in this man’s ice. Wanted to douse herself in it.
But she couldn’t.
Because while she had no doubt this man would be able to organize the hell out
of security and unquestionably catch the stalker and freeze him with his
ice-beams after leaping tall buildings in a single bound, there was no way he
wasn’t going to hamper the creative energy of the set. Energy that Chloe relied
on not only to make Day’s End the
greatest show on television, but to keep her own sanity.
He was already
sucking in her energy and they hadn’t even spoken yet.
Ten seconds later
he was standing directly in front of Chloe with his perfect hair and jaw,
perfect shirt tucked into his perfectly pressed pants.
“I’m Shane Westman
with Linear Tactical. We’ve been hired for security,” he said, taking off his
sunglasses. Chloe wasn’t a bit surprised to find he had perfectly icy blue
eyes. “I need to know who’s in charge.”
There was no way
this Shane Westman could stay. No possibility Chloe could allow it.
He was too perfect.
Too distracting. Too everything.
He may keep them
safe from the stalker but who would keep her safe from him?
