He will do anything to protect her . . . even if it means breaking her heart.
Combat veteran Gabriel Noble survived the war overseas, but the stoic Baine International security specialist is in for the fight of his life when he's tasked with bodyguarding beautiful lingerie designer Evelyn Beckham.
RUN TO YOU is a sizzling, suspenseful new standalone contemporary romance set in Lara Adrian's bestselling 100 Series story world. Swoon-worthy HEA guaranteed, and no cliffhangers!

Lara Adrian’s sizzling, suspenseful 100 Series continues with Run to You, a scorching new standalone contemporary bodyguard romance featuring friends of billionaire Dominic Baine and his artist fiancée Avery Ross.
Once a celebrated model, Evelyn Beckham dominated the fashion runways of New York, Paris, and Milan. But life under the lights nearly destroyed her, and at the height of her career she walked away from it all. Now, five years later, Eve’s built a new life at the helm of Manhattan’s premier high-end lingerie boutique, L’opale. Chosen to design the bridal ensemble for billionaire Dominic Baine’s fiancée, Avery Ross, it seems Eve’s stars have finally realigned—until her return to the spotlight thrusts her into the crosshairs of a danger that’s been watching from the shadows, waiting for the chance to strike.
Gabriel Noble didn’t go to war to become a hero, but when he returned from the battlefield in Afghanistan it was with a chest full of medals and a broken body filled with shrapnel. Losing his leg derailed more than Gabe’s career, and when no one else was willing to take a chance on him, Baine International put him on their security team. Now, Gabe would do anything for Dominic Baine—including keeping a covert, protective eye on beautiful Evelyn Beckham as a personal favor to his boss and friend. But keeping Eve safe means keeping her close, and soon the lines between duty and desire begin to blur into a consuming passion too powerful to be denied. With Eve’s life in escalating peril and her faith in him certain to shatter, Gabe will have to risk everything to protect her while facing the most intense fight of his life . . . the battle for Eve’s heart.


The 100 Series world was fun to go back and visit.  The main characters Gabriel Nobel and Evelyn Beckham come alive on the pages of Run to You.  Their chemistry together is combustible.

This is a fun romance with some mystery and danger entwined.  I loved Gabriel and Evelyn and their romantic journey.  They are two different people that can relate through their past experiences and try and forge a relationship together going forward.  I’m not giving away details, but this should not be too surprising since the author, Lara Adrian, is promising a HEA.

Run to You has the characters from the 100 Series and a slew of others that help set the stage for this standalone romance and hopefully many more in this world.

This is simply a wonderful story that you won’t want to miss.
