Protector Book

By Jodi Ellen Malpas  –  In stores September 6, 2016

People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy’s girl; beautiful, spoiled young woman with her father’s bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But Camille is determined to have a life free from his strings. Out on her own, she’s made mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press. Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father’s ruthless business dealings. Caught between resentment and fear, Camille prepares herself for the measures her father will take to protect her. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.

Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating–both personally and professionally. He vowed never to let that happen again. Accepting the job of bodyguard to Camille Logan isn’t the kind of distraction from his demons he should take. Women and Jake don’t mix well, yet protecting the heiress seems the lesser of two evils. But Jake soon discovers that she isn’t the woman she’s perceived to be. She’s warm, compassionate, her presence settling, and his duty to protect her soon goes deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it. He needs absolution. He comes to need Camille. But he knows he can’t have both.

I started reading this book while I was on vacation last week.  So far I am really enjoying the characters, especially Cami and the extended story of her fashion business that she is trying to get off the ground.  *NOTE* there is a lot of explicit language and themes in THE PROTECTOR book.   I like to put a rating on the books I place on my site similar to a movie rating and this would be rated “R” in my opinion.

  9. I love romance novels because, if well written, it brings emotions and thoughts to the forefront and as you keep reading – your part of that world. In today’s troubled time, escapism can be a blessing, even ifs its just for little while. “The Protector” looks like its going to be a great read and I’m always thankful to find a book that provides a good story line as well as has you thinking about the characters – long after you’ve read the last page.

  13. I love them because they make me feel better and escape from reality for awhile.

  14. I like that romance novels always make you want the two main characters to end up together.
