Ezio Stark’s Blurb Coming soon. Check back for update.
Sweet, heartfelt and romantic.
Her Intense Protector by Caitlyn O’Leary is the fourth book in her action-packed and thoroughly entertaining Night Storm series, and another example of why readers keep coming back for more of this exceptionally talented author’s work. But while Her Intense Protector does have some danger and suspense to whet your SEAL appetites, this story is more about rebuilding lives and the struggle to find where you ultimately belong.
Samantha and Ezio have met before and the chemistry they felt was undeniable, but also badly timed due to Sam’s recently jilted heart. Ezio never forgot the captivating woman, and Sam has featured in many of Ezio’s more erotic dreams but playing second fiddle to a woman’s heart as the rebound romance just isn’t his style. Sam wants a new start and moving where she has friends for support and can leave the memories behind seems the logical thing to do, and her fresh start definitely doesn’t include sexy SEALs or complex relationships. But Ezio has never been far from her thoughts and reconnecting with the gorgeous and big-hearted SEAL is causing Sam to revaluate her stand on romance.
As this intriguing and captivating story progresses, readers meet a woman who is unfailing loyal and quite often used for the benefit of others. Sam has one unmistakable fault; she simply can’t say no when asked to help someone in need and this can lead to circumstances that put her at risk, even when she’s positive she has everything under control. For his part, Ezio is a man who is more than the stunning and glorious package his surface appearance portrays; as a SEAL he's devoted to his team and the protection of the innocent, he is always on call when his large and boisterous family demand attention, and he also finds time for some extracurricular activates that will melt the heart of the most hardened and cynical soul.
So yes, there is an element of danger in this story and a rescue is required, but for me this one was more about the positive, quirky and sometimes gullible Samantha with her adorable and giving persona and the man who is her equal in the giving stakes and whose heart she captured at their very first meeting. Ezio and Sam have some issues to overcome, and his frustration will be front and centre on more than one occasion, but as with any true love story when your heart says it’s right, why fight the pull and deny your happily ever after. I hope you enjoy this wonderful and heartfelt story as much as I did.
