His to Protect: A Bachelor Bad Boys/Masters and Mercenaries Novella - Carly Phillips, Lexi Blake

This novella is part of Lexi Blake's Crossover Collection from her Masters & Mercenaries series.  I have never read any of the books in the original series, but it is not needed to enjoy this story.

Talia Shaw is a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company and is working on a new formula that could change people's lives.  Imagine her surprise when someone tries to break into her lab.  Talia knows they are after her formula and she decides to hide and calls her brother.  He tells her to head to Shane Landon's house to hide, since he is a body guard.  Talia is hesitant to seek help from the one man she has always longed for, but at least she knows she can trust him.  As Talia shows up at Shane Landon's house, she is very surprised to catch him showering outside, and all naked!

Knowing that Shane needs to get Talia to safety, they have to swing by her apartment first to get her work that is safely hidden and then get her to her mentor who has the rest of the work.  Of course on the way they run into all kinds of trouble.

As Talia and Shane are spending more time together, things quickly heat up.  After an explosive, action packed ending, these two finally get their happy ending.  This was a fun, and quick moving story and both of the characters were really fun.
