Every Woman Needs A Hero The first time C. J. Powell rescues her, Natasha Bennington is running a marathon honoring the memory of their friend. Now her work fighting for humanitarian rights is once again putting her at risk. And the rugged San Francisco firefighter has crowned himself her designated hero! Catching the stunning brunette when she collapses at the finish line isn't the way C.J. imagined meeting Tasha again. A year ago, she'd been hopelessly in love with his best friend. Now the fiercely dedicated pro bono attorney needs his protection-especially after a deadly threat forces Tasha to flee to C.J.'s hometown. There are worse things than hiding out in the breathtaking wilds of Alaska with the woman he adores. Now C.J. has a more urgent mission-keeping Tasha safe until the danger's past and she's ready to move on...with him.
