Genre: Romance 

Professional photographer Dana Secrest has a secret and doesn’t even know it. When she storms from her best friend’s home on Christmas Eve-not the wisest decision she’s ever made - security contractor Sam Galdicar follows her to save her from her own hot temper and impulsive action. Upon arriving home, Dana discovers her apartment has been ransacked. Then an attempt is made on her life. She doesn’t know who’s trying to kill her or why, but Sam is determined to protect the woman whose eyes don’t need a camera to see the truth.

This enemies-to-lovers, billionaire romance contains some explicit content that may be unsuitable for readers under 18 years old. 

I handed her the shirt, “Here, put this on.”
She clamped the towel to her chest with one arm and reached with the other to take the shirt. “Turn around, Sam.”
I stood there and grinned, enjoying her discomfiture. It wasn’t nice of me.
“Please,” she whispered.
I turned my back to her and wished I’d thought to install a mirror above the bureau.
“Okay,” she said in a dull voice when she was ready.
I turned around and felt a possessive sort of satisfaction at seeing her wearing nothing but my shirt, clothed in only what I gave her. But her dull expression issued no invitation.
“You’ll sleep here tonight,” I said.
Her hazel eyes narrowed with suspicion. “And where will you sleep?”
“Here. It’s my bed.”
She struggled to her feet. “I can sleep on the sofa.”
I shook my head. “You’ll do no such thing. You’re still chilled through.”
“I don’t trust you, Sam.”
I blinked in surprise. Her distrust infuriated me, but I admired her forthright honesty. Looking into her eyes, however, I saw fear. That alone stayed any angry words. Putting a finger under her chin and tilting her face to meet my gaze, I said, “I’ve already seen and touched you and I didn’t molest you, now did I? Trust me, Dana. I won’t do anything you don’t want.”


Holly Bargo never outgrew a love of fairy tales, legends, and myths. Or horses. However, one foot must remain firmly planted in the real world where Holly makes her living as a freelance writer and editor. She and her husband have two grown children and live on a southwest Ohio hobby farm with a menagerie indoor and outdoor animals. 

Holly enjoys hearing from readers and other authors and may be contacted via the Hen House Publishing website: 

When she's not working on other people's documents or reading, Holly finds time to transfer the voices in her head to paper ... er ... computer. If she doesn't, there's a definite possibility her mind will explode. 

And for those who might wonder from where the pseudonym of Holly Bargo came, it's quite simple really. Horses. Namely an elegant and temperamental Appaloosa mare who has long since crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is fondly remembered for guarding toddler children and crushing a brand-new pager.
