Protective Instincts




After losing her family, and then nearly her life when she was held hostage in Africa, grieving widow Raina Lowery only wants to put the past behind her. Instead, she's finding her son's toys in the woods and dodging a gunman's bullets. Raina is trapped in a real-life nightmare—until Jackson Miller reappears. Months ago, saving Raina was Jackson's job as a member of HEART, a private rescue team. But now it's personal. The hardened protector wants to give Raina—and himself—a second chance at love. But first he has to save her…again.

Mission: Rescue—No job is too dangerous for these fearless heroes

My Review:

Great new series by a much loved author. Jackson has my vote for swoonworthy hero of the year. I didn't even bother getting up from my fainting couch when I read this one. :-) Jackson is a wonderful combination of tender and brawn and one hundred per cent protector. Just what Raina needs when her life is turned upside down by a creepy stalker. You're going to want to keep shoulder checking if you read this book at night! But McCoy has woven some precious moments of humour along with all that taut suspense. And she's done a great job of introducing her readers to the HEART team. I predict more thrilling reads in the future.

    1. Hmmm...have I read Heroes for Hire? Must check. She's written so many but I only started reading LIS a few tears ago. Now she's definitely a 'don't-think-twice-just-buy-it' author for me. Good luck aerykah.

  5. Well Kav. You've done it again. Made everyone really want this book. Good job. I have not read any books by Shirlee McCoy. She is new to me. I also love the suspense/mystery/romance in a book. So I am going to give it a try to win. Thanks. Maxie
