Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.
Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.
With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.
5 Star Review of His To Protect by Carly Phillips
This is part of the current Lexi Blake Crossover Collection and when I heard that Carly Phillips was going to be a part of this series I was excited. Having read numerous books from Ms.Phillips and virtually every book that Lexi Blake has written I couldn’t wait to see how these two worlds came together.
Shane Landon is a bodyguard for McKay Taggart. When his best friend’s sister Talia Shaw lands on his doorstep terrified and on the run, Shane knows he will do everything in his power to protect her. Talia is a scientist who has been working on a top secret project,which has garnered the interest of some not so savoury characters.
Can Shane keep Talia safe, whilst becoming more and more attracted to the hot scientist? After all he has been fighting his attraction to her for years and Talia has had a crush on SHane as well. I really liked Talia, not only is she smart, but she has such a strength of character that endears her to the reader. Shane is smoking hot and totally ticks all the boxes for me.
Although not a particularly long read, His To Protect was extremely well written with fast paced action and danger. A great read and one I recommend.
