Hired to protect her

…unable to resist her

The job sounds simple: teach a businessman’s daughter how to stay safe. But former navy SEAL turned bodyguard Kyle Frasier has a personal motive, too. Harper Jansen is his late best friend’s fiancée. Loyalty demands he protect her, not that Harper looks in need of rescuing. In fact, it’s Kyle who needs help—balancing duty with his desire to build a life with the one woman he shouldn’t want…


KEEPING HER CLOSE is book three in the emotionally riveting Pacific Cove Romance series by Carol Ross and brings us the story of a former Navy SEAL turned bodyguard and a photographer in a bit of an opposites attract story.

Harper is immediately an easy to relate to character even though she’s keeping some info about her late fiancee under her sleeve for a good bit of the book. She’s kindhearted and seems always willing to give of her time.

Kyle is conflicted a good part of the book because he likes Harper, but he feels so much allegiance to his late best friend who she was engaged to.

I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys their romance on the sweet side with strong character development and deep story lines. This series as a whole has been really good and I always look forward to a return visit to Pacific Cove.

A misunderstanding tore them apart.

Now he’s her only chance…

Blackhawk Security’s Elizabeth Dawson believes ex-government programmer Braxton Levitt betrayed her, but now he’s the only one who can keep her safe. A killer steps ahead of them is methodically hunting the pregnant analyst to access her top-level software program. But as Braxton and Liz race to stop him, their broken trust—and most intimate secrets—could end more than their lives…


RULES IN DECEIT is book three in Nichole Severn’s attention grabbing Blackhawk Security series and centers around former NSA teammates who reconnect amid secrets and scandals in this reunion story.

Elizabeth is a strong female lead who stands tough even when faced with the man who she believes betrayed her and just so happens to be the unknowing father of her baby-to-be.

Braxton is quick to catch a reader’s attention because he seems like such an upstanding guy even though he’s being accused of bad things. It doesn’t take us long to realize he’s there to help her … and maybe things aren’t exactly like they’ve been portrayed.

I highly recommend this story to all intrigue fans. It’s fast paced, action packed and very satisfying. You can’t go wrong with any of the books in the series so far, and I’m looking forward to more to come.
