He wishes keeping his hands off her was as easy as keeping her safe, but she’s one delicious temptation no mortal man can resist…
As the sole heir of the richest man in the world, Lillian Blackwell lives her life as nothing but a pawn in a golden cage. Lonely in her tall tower, she yearns for that someday when her knight in shining armour will come and rescue her and set her free.
Battle-worn veteran, Brandon Shea lost everything after he came back from the war. He’s just starting over when he gets a job as Lillian's bodyguard. He certainly doesn't expect Lillian to beg him to free her when she’s forced to marry her father's colleague, Maxwell Stanford, a cunning billionaire who has a terrible temper and is also twice her age. Brandon swore he'd had enough of playing hero, but when he realises Lillian is just as lonely as he is, he can’t refuse her request.
Hiding Lillian from Stanford's men is an easy job, but things get out of hand when she wants Brandon for more than just her bodyguard. Suddenly, playing the knight for his modern-day Rapunzel becomes much more physical than he’d planned.

On the journey to freedom they fall in love.
Do they make it to safety and can their love last when they are on the run? Read it and find out!
Gilded Cage is jam packed with adventure and some of the steamiest sex scenes I have ever read. I loved the fast paced plot and enjoyed the lull in the action when the love scenes occurred and, were they ever scorching! I had a hard time putting this book down because I had to know what would happen next.
Not once through the book was I disappointed. From beginning to end each word was worth reading. This book is a modern day Rapunzel. Guilded Cage is perfect if you're looking for a read that is action packed and has a romantic happily ever after!
