Heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has everything she wants, including the perfect fiancé. Having left two other men at the altar, Victoria is sure that this time she's found her true love and will finally live happily ever after. As her wedding draws near, however, Victoria's life is threatened. To keep her safe, Victoria's father hires a bodyguard.
Tom Cushman's number one priority is protecting his clients which means no personal entanglements. But he's never guarded someone as beautiful and winsome as Victoria. After a near-kidnapping, the wedding is cancelled, and Tom hides Victoria at Cape Cod's Race Point Lighthouse until her attacker can be found. Appointed as assistant light keeper with Victoria posing as his wife. Tom believes the isolation of the lighthouse will keep her safe.
As Victoria struggles to live without familiar luxuries, her heart betrays her with growing feelings for her protector. Determined to help Tom stop fleeing from his haunted past, can the runaway bride learn to face her own fears? With the attacker closing in, will both of them ever be able to stop running and find the safety they long for?
Supply checklist necessary before starting to read Forever Safe:
fainting couch (and you might just need a back up one! Or a lot of cushy pillows on your floor to soften those mid-swoon falls.)
Fan...electrical, ceiling, paper...all of the above...in duplicate.
Chocolate....just because it goes so well with a reading binge and you won't be able to stop reading once you start this one.
Y'all think I'm joking, right? Uh-uh. Because while this is the fourth book in the Beacon of Hope series, it's the first indie published one. And that means that the author hasn't been restricted by traditional Christian publishing rules when it comes to the romantical. Now that doesn't mean that she crosses any lines, but gentle readers should know that passion explodes off the page in some scenes. In others it is barely restrained desire that set my heart a pitter-pattering. But both are always tempered by respect and gentle tenderness. Tom is just....thud.....well, he's why you need the fainting couch and the pillows on the floor. An honorable protector who made a promise to Victoria's father and intends to keep it....despite the fact that Victoria doesn't want him to. :-)
Victoria is ridiculously wealthy, spoiled but not snooty and endearing from the very first page -- and I loved the runaway bride angle! They say opposites attract and that fits Tom and Victoria perfectly. He challenges her to look beyond her pampered lifestyle so she can become the woman God made her to be. And she soothes the brokenness in his battered soul. Together they make each other stronger....if they can stop running from each other long enough to figure that out!
Hedlund blends humour, suspense and toe-tingling romance into a page-turner of a read.
