Secured Heart by Yvette Hines
When an unexpected woman from Kal's past enters a high profile party his team is working, his raw, feral feelings for her may jeopardize the growing success of his business. Lana is not just any woman. She’s the one that got away.
Lana doesn’t have time to deal with a jealous and prideful Amofeli male. That’s especially true for Kal, a past friend, who was supposed to be there years ago when she needed him. Right now she has enough men vying for her attention in one way or another. When it comes to Kal, her mind knows it is best to keep him at a distance, but her heart aches for the one that stole it a lifetime ago.
Foolish youthful mayhem may have caused Kal to make rash and wrong decisions where Lana was concerned. However, this time he plans to claim his mate and secure her heart forever.
