(Mine By Default Mini-Series, Book 1)
Setting: New Orleans, Louisiana
Meet Elias (Eli) Leaumont - a New Orleans police officer. He's secretly in love with the woman who saved his life. The woman who has been his best friend for four years, Natalie (Allie) Romain.
Natalie thinks the world of Elias. He's special to her and no one can get under her skin like he can. She loves him dearly as a friend and made it clear to him, years ago, that she would never date a cop. However, they spend so much time together, most people already think they are a couple.
Then there's the way Elias looks at her...
What Natalie doesn't know is, Elias considers her much more than just a friend. He considers her his. But when he thinks she's interested in his brother, Solomon, his behavior becomes erratic and obsessive. And then there's the emotional and physical damage he sustained from being shot while on duty, four years ago.
