Ethan and Derek Taggart: they're the men of Gemini, and when it comes to sheet-scorching undercover work, nobody does it better. The only one they answer to is big brother Danny--that is, until the right women come along to grab the reins and crack the whip as hard as the Taggart men like it. . .
Security is Derek Taggart's game, and he plays it straight--no margin for error, no time to fool around. . .except with one hot little number who changes everything. He takes her home when she needs a ride--one she'll never forget. The problem is Derek can't forget her, a total about-face for a guy who keeps his enemies closer than his lovers. Then he finds out the sexy dynamo is Alyssa Miles, notorious party girl and darling of the gossip rags. It's time to walk away and never look back, which would be a hell of a lot easier if his agency didn't desperately need the high-profile gig her family's offering: a minor detail that consists mainly of Derek watching Alyssa 24/7. Keeping an eagle eye on every inch of Alyssa's nubile body isn't exactly a hardship--the problem is keeping his hands off and his brain on when things go dangerously wrong. . .

Riches and risk
Sexy and suspenseful, Jami Alden's Kept tells the story of a beautiful celebrity heiress and the bodyguard whoreluctantlybelieves in her. Alyssa Miles is the illegitimate progeny of a supermodel and the head of a jewelry empire. She's cleaned up her bad-girl act and has become the face of her father's successful ad campaign when tragedy strikes her family. However, what looks like a murder-suicide may instead be something even darker, and Alyssa is unsure who she can trust. Security expert Derek Taggart thinks he's drawn the short stick when he's assigned babysitting duties for a woman he considers a society brat at best. Her reputation as a party girl makes it hard for him to sympathize with the beauty, but his libido has its own demands. As Alyssa and Derek get closer, so does dangerand they're not sure they'll survive long enough to see where their passion leads. Fast-paced, with scenes of bad baddies and earthy lovemaking, Kept is an exciting story of blood diamonds and a rich girl at risk of deathand love.
