Keeping her safe will be his hardest assignment yet. . .
Reeling from trauma and divorce, Cara Halperin takes what should be a simple job with an expensive agency. As a nanny to rich children, she shouldnâ€™t have much to worry about, and her job is just complex enough to keep her from brooding. Unfortunately, the agencyâ€™s sent her into a trap.
Vincent Desmarais wants to go back into the field, but instead, heâ€™s put on leave. The diagnosis? PTSD. No problem--he can pick up security work on the side to keep himself sharp--that is, if the side work isnâ€™t just as dangerous as the bloody places heâ€™s longing to get back to.
When the lights go out, Cara and her young charge have only one option: to trust the new security guy. Vincent finds himself unwilling to abandon them to fate or let them out of his sight. If the trio wants to stay alive, theyâ€™ve got to trust each other. . .
. . .but that may just be what their enemies are counting on.

Even the light books, like this one, are a little gritty - but the heroines are always plausible and full of agency. This is a quick read, full of action and a respectable romance that doesn’t rely on sex or any weird tropes to be believable.
