Without Warning

GIVEAWAY

EASON, LYNETTE
WITHOUT WARNING

Intensity. Skill. Tenacity. The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.

Katie Singleton, a partner with the Elite Guardians Protection Agency, stumbles upon her next assignment quite by accident. Spotting blue lights at a familiar restaurant, she stops to investigate, only to discover that owner Daniel Matthews has become the target of someone who will go to any lengths to put him out of business.

Daniel might be concerned, but he's not convinced that a bodyguard -- and a female one at that - is necessary. A new attack and his niece's urgings are enough o make him reconsider. He and Katie must figure out who's behind the intimidation and threats -- before a would-be killer strikes again.

My Review:

I absolutely love the female bodyguard twist to this series. Such an engaging breakaway from the traditional alpha hero in rescue mode. There's something exhilarating about a tough-as-nails heroine with protection on her mind.

And I love that Daniel accepts Katie and her skills for what they are. That doesn't mean he stays on the sidelines -- he has an interesting background that makes him more than capable of standing up to danger. Together they make a fearsomely awesome team...though there was this one place where they did something that set me in panic mode. It was so ominously clear that the bad guy would take advantage and I tried to warn them but they ignored me. And was I right? Boy, was I right! They barely got out alive. Gah! I hate when the hero and heroine ignore a reader's sincere prompting.

The romantic tension is taut from early on. Charged moments punctuated by danger tease the reader's anticipation. And then there's all the sinister twists and turns and a bevy of alarmingly ingenuous attempts on Daniel's life. And, oh my goodness, there are a few scenes that gave me the collywobbles. (Isn't that a great word -- it means intensely anxious to the point of queasiness. LOL)

Another exceptionally enthralling read from this stellar romantic suspense author.

Oh -- and you don't need to read the first book in the Elite Guardians series -- Always Watching -- in order to enjoy this one. The books read really well as standalones though there are overlapping characters (the Elite Guardian team).
