There is something about a guy willing to risk everything to keep you safe. Jesse inadvertently put Kate’s life in danger, while they were both in danger of losing their hearts.

Kate is tough as nails and Jesse has a gruff exterior with a soft teddy bear interior. They balance each other very well. While they don’t agree very often on how things should be handled, both agree justice should be served. I didn’t quite predict the ending, which is awesome… but I wasn’t quite surprised by it either.

What Sheila Kell does is create a series that would be intriguing to read and find out the story of every member of HIS Protection. Would it be a long series, sure… but it would be TOTALLY worth it! (Click the cover to purchase!)

Resisting Miss Merryweather ~ Emily Larkin

Sir Barnaby committed a terrible mistake a few years ago. While regrettable, he has learned to live with it. He has carried that guilt the entire time and has deemed himself unworthy of any social contact of any kind. After a dreadful confrontation with Cosgrove in Unmasking Miss Appleby, Barnaby has practically withdrawn from society and Cosgrove wants to bring him back into the fold. Can Barnaby forget the past and be the person Cosgrove knows he can be? Or will he wallow in guilt and continue to think he’s unworthy?

Thankfully, Merry doesn’t agree with Barnaby! Merry is great at reading people and she sees right through Barnaby. Through a series of interesting events, the two are brought together in life, death, and redemption. It was a nice story about redemption and learn to forgive yourself. The writing was great, but I wasn’t as in love with this story as I was with Unmasking Miss Appleby. There are at least 2 more stories in the series and I can’t wait to read them!
