TITLE: Guarding Her Heart (Braxton Arcade Book Two)
AUTHOR: Adore Ian
BLURB: She moved into his house… then into his heart.
Elle Lee is on the run—hiding from her ex and his family. After secretly moving to the other side of the country, she wants nothing more than to stay shielded behind the carefully constructed armor that’s kept her, and her secrets, safe all these years.
But when she befriends Conor—the strong, quiet guard who works security for the mysterious Alice Braxton—she finds herself wanting to step out from behind her armor and experience life again.
Conor Kahele is a protector—always has been, always will be. So when timid Elle gets a job at the Braxton Arcade, he can’t help but watch out for her. They become fast friends and when Elle finds herself with little money and no place to live, Conor is unable to stop himself from asking her to move in.
Platonically, of course.
But friendship goes out the window the more they learn about one another, and soon Conor finds himself agreeing to take Elle’s virginity. What neither agreed to was giving the other their heart.
While people from Elle’s past hunt her, demons from Conor’s past haunt him. If he can guard her heart, Conor just might save them both. But if he fails, if he goes too far, he might become the very thing that stalks them.
(Soon to be available on Apple Books, Google Play, B&N, and Kobo)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Adore Ian grew up in a mixed race family in Hawaii and has loved steamy romance novels ever since finding a Harper paperback discarded on the sidewalk when she was a kid. She’s a proud dyslexic, an intersectional feminist-in-progress, and a lover of standard poodles. She lives with her manfriend on the east coast where she spends too much time bunny watching and not enough time writing. She believes the ingredients to good romance are too much smut, quality fluff and angst, and a dash of guerrilla sex ed. Her novels are best enjoyed with a slice of pizza and an ice cold beer.
