Celebrity archaeologist Cari Dunn is so over the Georgia heat, the red tape at her dig site, and the threatening messages left on her motel door. She just wants to dig, and the network just wants to keep her safe—with a bodyguard. She can’t complain. Jasper Benjamin radiates raw masculinity that penetrates her to the core and ignites passion she’s never felt. Too bad for him, she’s not going to be easy to handle.
Lusting after the bodyguard shouldn’t be so tempting, especially when her life is on the line.
Dr. Cari Dunn, a B-list reality television star, has apparently made some enemies. It’s clear when they start leaving intimidating messages for her to discover which prompts her producers to hire close protection for her. She’s upset that such a life altering decision was made without her permission and she’s scared.
Enter Jasper Benjamin. Embodying the intoxicatingly sexy role of bodyguard. Things get unprofessional really quick with these two because their chemistry is off the charts.
This is the first short story in the Uninhibited trilogy. The character development is pretty shallow before Jasper and Cari get down and dirty, which tells me this story is primarily focused on getting me off but not necessarily to tell a complex, multifaceted story. Just a bit of fun! It ends with a cliffhanger, but you won’t be waiting long. Stay tuned for Unbound within a week.

ABOUT LAUREN HAWKEYE
New York Time and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.
Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, two young sons, pit bull and two idiot cats, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting, reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
