Book blurb: Zandra York just got her big break, photographing a major project for a travel magazine. So what if she’s never traveled out of the country before? Or that she’s more adept at deciphering fraudulent financial statements than reading German train schedules? Her brother Jackson is on his way to act as her guide, and she can’t wait to experience Europe with him.
But when Jackson’s overprotective best friend gets off the plane instead, Zandra knows this will not end well.
There isn't a damned thing Special Forces instructor Blake Monroe wouldn't do for his best friend, but babysit Zandra when Jackson is unexpectedly called away on a mission? Nope. Not on the list. Especially not when she proves to be more trouble than he can handle—and far too tempting.
Between accidentally hiring a hearse as their rideshare, an unprovoked goat attack, and photographing erotic-shaped chocolates, Blake and Zandra can’t keep their hands off each other. But Zandra’s new career is about to send her all over the world and Blake is finally ready to settle down after his next deployment.
He’ll never ask her to give up her dreams. And she’ll never ask him to give up his.
Hilarity ensues when a world-weary Special Forces soldier must keep his best friend's little sister, an independent travel photographer with zero experience and too much determination to go where she has no business going, out of trouble.

“It wasn’t debauchery, it was a bachelorette party. And I’m happy to report the bachelorette was thrilled that her bridesmaids had as good a time as she did. I just wish Tina hadn’t banned my camera. Although there really was good reason to not want evidence.”
“Did no one think to use a phone?”
“Oh, she made sure we gave them up before we started. Smart lady.” Then Zandra let out a small laugh. “Did you know elephants have relatively small penises?”
He cocked his head to one side. “Why do you feel the need to tell me this?”
“You know that old saying about how size doesn’t matter?” she asked, clearly ignoring his question. “Well, it’s apparently true in some parts of the world.”
Her face cracked into a smile that soon broadened again. But her eyes were what captured Blake. They practically sparked with mischief, and he shifted uneasily in his seat. Damn. If he didn’t know any better, he’d swear she planned to make this trip harder than it should be.
“Am I going to be subjected to penis talk until we get to Stuttgart? Because maybe I should hop off this train and head back to Seattle.”
“Oh, stop whining,” she said, settling back against her seat. “Seriously, though, Tina’s going through with this whole marriage thing, and I’m not sure I get it. She’s got a couple more years of law school, so why they don’t wait doesn’t make sense.”
Well, she had him there. She was talking to someone chomping at the bit to get into law school, only she didn’t know that. No one did. Not even his mother.
