To keep her safe, he’ll have to uncover all her secrets…Rayne Alexander. A face I never thought I’d see again, and one I never could forget. Nine years ago, she left town–and me–without a backward glance. But now she’s back, with a haunted look in her eyes and a feisty attitude that didn’t exist when we were teenagers. Seeing this grown-up–and sexy–Rayne is something I wasn’t prepared for… and it’s bringing up feelings I’d thought I’d buried years ago.Although I want to demand answers from Rayne, working on black ops at Night Eagle Security has taught me that it’s sometimes better to keep my mouth shut. So when I catch her hiding a photo of a little boy, I’m curious. When I see her jump as her phone rings, I’m concerned. But the second I notice a car following her home, I know she’s hiding something. Something dangerous. And while I may not know why she left or why she’s back, if there’s someone out there Rayne is afraid of, I’ll make damn sure that threat is eliminated.
Sworn to Protect by Diana Gardin is a second chance romance filled with love, heat and a twist of mystery and thrill. It is also the first book in her new Rescue Ops series. We are given tons of mature angst, both in Jeremy and Rayne’s relationship and in the situation that has brought the back together after all these years.
Rayne is running scared, doing what she needs to do to protect her son and survive. Heading home to her childhood town seems like the smart thing to do. She is thrown back into a life that she left behind and she handles the situation with grace. Seeing Jeremy throws her or a loop but she stands tall, determined to do anything to keep herself and Decker dafe.
Jeremy’s world is about to be turned upside down. With Rayne, the love of his life, unexpectedly coming back into town his past comes flooding back to him. Instead of freaking out (like most men would) he handles it unbelievably well. And he’s really sweet and sexy while doing it…
“That kiss? I meant it. We’re not running away from it…just postponing it for later. Yeah?”
He is determined to prove to Rayne that he will do whatever it takes to protect her and love her. Jeremy is full of reassurance, always letting her know the lengths that he will go to for his family.
Rayne and Jeremy are so good together, there is no awkwardness (although I’m sure there was plenty when they were teenagers LOL) When things are meant to be, they just click into place. When all of this is threatened, Jeremy does whatever he has to with the help of his co-workers (aka friends and “family”). You will be on the edge of your seat with this one!
But that’s how I know it’s real. Ryan and Decker are everything I didn’t even know I wanted, and they’re mine to protect, cherish, and love.
Sworn to Protect is full of love, hope an lots of alpha male heat! This is a story you don’t want to miss.
I’d always protect a client with my life if I had to. But this is Rayne. I’ll protect her with my heart.
I am hooked on this new series and cannot wait for more….the NES men are H-O-T and I’m anxious to get close to them ;)
