Reader Review: This is a story worth reading it has a plot line with a dash of social commentary to keep things lively. This is fun to read because the author has created a heroine with is not only smart and funny but with a unique identity from all the other cardboard cut out characters that are written about these days. Worth you time.!
He's every woman's fantasy. She's every bodyguard's nightmare...
Lucas "Huck" Finn is thrilled to join elite Ranger Security, until he learns his new assignment is to babysit heiress Sapphira Stravos, a doggy-toting debutante who's driving everyone crazy. Still, he can't help but feel there's more to Sapphira than meets the eye. And what's meeting the eye is damn hard to resist....
Thanks to a few stupid threatening letters, Sapphira Stravos is having her style cramped, big-time! How is she going to look after the charities she secretly supports? Although she'd managed to ditch her former jailers, this guy isn't budging. Still, having a guy as hot as Huck around has its perks. After all, if he has to guard her body, he might as well get to enjoy it, too...

"ARE ABSOLUTELY certain this is what you want to do?" Colonel Carl Garrett asked, his tone as grave as his expression.
Seated in an uncomfortable chair in front of the colonel's desk, Huck nodded. "Yes, sir."
"You could still be an asset to the military, Major Finn. Just because you're no longer physically able to meet the demands of an active Ranger doesn't mean that you are no longer of value to your country. You have other talents as well," he said, carefully perusing the documents on his gleaming mahogany desk. "You could be very useful in an instructional capacity if you"
Huck bit back a blistering curse. "With all due respect, sir, I didn't join the military to teach. I joined to defend."
And he couldn't do that anymore. Would never be able to do that again.
He swallowed, pushed back the despair, anger and absolute fury roiling in his gut. How could he have been so stupid? Have made such a rookie mistake? His knee twinged, remembering, and his fist involuntarily tightened around his cane. "I know that there are lots of other men who've made the transition that you're talking about, Colonel, and I respect their decision. However, it's not the path for me. I'm a man of action, sir, and since I'm no longer capable of acting, I know that leaving the military is the best route."

Lots of fellow soldiers had made inquiries as to his plans once he'd decided to leave, but he could hardly tell them when he didn't know himself. All he knew at this point was that he had to get out. That being here, being w...

It was a pleasant surprise to see this series and a new character. The original three were fun reads but I wasn't expecting more - and another one coming soon!
