Protector for Hire
Front and Center #4
By: Tawna Fenske
Releasing June 30, 2015
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.
Hilarious, humorous, fun, sexy and adorable story, that left me smiling.
The story is well written, and the dialog is brilliant, with the humor, word associations, and felicitous marks. The characters are developed, the family unit tight and a bit nuts, just over all truly enjoyable tale.
Schwartz is everything you could dream of, just perfect. He is caring, protective, loyal, kind, thoughtful... So yes, he might be a bit of a grouch, grumpy, and antisocial, loving his isolated world, but his true nature overrides all that, and then some.
Janelle doesn't hold back much, she tells it as she sees it, and goes for what she wants. And she wants Schwartz. That sets off the dirty talking, lust filled days at the cabin somewhere in Montana. While in hiding, they not only engage in mind blowing lovemaking, but also bright, insightful conversations where they share intimate thoughts and experiences of their lives.
The possible danger for Janelle's life is constantly present, but mostly the danger they face in Montana, comes from the wildlife and lively town folk, who offer moonshine with life philosophy.
Joyful, heartening, and cheerful romance, mix of danger and action, family bonding over gunfight, and wilderness living are the elements of the story, that left me grinning and craving for pop tarts
