Keeping her safe is crucial. Guarding his heart is impossible.

Haunted by his time in Iraq, former soldier Schwartz Patton goes off the grid, retreating deep into Montana’s untamed wilderness. Now, ten years into his self-imposed solitude, his brother tracks him down and asks for a favor. A woman is in danger, and she needs help...and Schwartz is the only one who can protect her.

Designer-loving city girls like Janelle Keebler don't belong in the wilderness. Unless, of course, they're witnesses to a murder by their psycho drug-trafficking ex-husbands. Still, Janelle can't help the immediate physical response she has to her sexy-as-sin protector that leaves her wanting more than she could have ever imagined. Even if he does make terrible coffee...

Every word, every touch, every kiss ignites a need Schwartz thought he’d lost forever. He can't stop the desperate attraction simmering between him and Janelle, even if he wanted to. Even if it means it could get them both killed.

My Thoughts:

I've really been loving the Lovestruck line from Entangled. Such sweet romances with lots of heart. Protector for Hire was, no doubt, full of so much heart that I was bursting by the time I finished.

Janelle is in hiding from her ex-husband. Once he's found and in jail, she'll be safe again. In the meantime, she's staying with Schwartz until the coast is clear. He's been hiding away himself, but for another reason entirely, one he can't let go of. Having Janelle around is a new thing for him since he's rarely around people. She gets under his skin in the best way possible, but he's unwilling to cross any lines--he's supposed to be protecting her, nothing more. It's impossible to resist the temptation, though. When the time comes for her to leave, will they be able to say goodbye?

Protector for Hire completely blew me away in all aspects--the love, the suspense, the build-up. Your heart goes out to Schwartz--all that's he's been through, everything he's struggling with. When the two of them open up, it brings on a mess of feelings so touching. Now to go back and read the rest of the Front and Center series by Tawna Fenske!

EXCERPT

“You were gone a long time,” she said. “Did you have trouble finding something?”
 

He frowned, not wanting to admit he’d been pacing around the damn store avoiding the inevitable moment he’d have to go back and face her and accept the fact that he’d probably never touch her again. “Not everything,” he said, poking the
meat loaf with his fork but not taking a bite. “I got the milk.”
 

“No cond—coffee filters?” 

“They were all out of cond—coffee filters.” 

“All out?” She frowned. “I swear I saw a box when we were there the other day. They were right up by the register.” 

He shifted on the bench, not wanting to admit he’d stared at the same damn box of condoms and thought about having her again. 

Maybe just one more time before she walked out of his life forever. Instead, he’d forced himself to walk away. “The box was damaged. Can’t risk having holes in coffee filters.” 

Across the table, Gordy wiped his chin with a napkin. 

“You like the kind with the pointy tip, or the big wide ones?” 

Schwartz blinked. “Uh— ” 

Laverne beamed. “Oooh, I like the new ones they’re making now with the flavor-enhancing micro-perforations.” 

Schwartz dared a glance at Janelle and saw that her face had gone from pink to bright red. She opened her mouth to say something, but Laverne cut her off. 

“You know, I just love the ones with the extra-large base. The box says it makes for a deeper, bolder experience.” 

Janelle choked on her drink, and Schwartz turned to see her sputtering into a glass that looked suspiciously full of moonshine. 

“How much of that have you had?” he asked. 

“Not enough,” she said.
