Publisher Description

After a foiled abduction attempt, Ellery Mayne realizes that an entire security detail has been shadowing her every move, protecting her from danger she didn’t know she was in. Working to uncover the secrets behind her elusive watchers, she carefully conducts her own surveillance, testing the limits of professionals who think she is clueless about them. Though they are hard to spot, their loyalty and care for her is not. When she finds a way to declare her feelings for one of her guards, he is blindsided with joy but fearful that his team will lose its lucrative security contract because of his relationship with the mark they’ve all come to love.

As secrets to the identity and intentions of the team’s mysterious employer begin to unravel, Ellery’s deeply buried affections resurface and battle with the love and loyalty she feels for her guards and her new love. Searching for answers and conscious that her choices will impact loved ones and guardian angels alike, Ellery finds that her life is ‘In The Spotlight’ and she is the ‘Mayne Attraction.’

I'm hooked!

Took a chance on a free e-book and I'm so glad I did. Who's right for Ellery -Grayson or Ash or will she decide neither? I can't wait to find out.

Great read!

Ann Mauren has created compelling and richly layered characters in this debut novel. I found myself lost in her world and could not put the book down! I have also read the prequel "Barefoot Heroine" and was impressed with how Ann weaves the threads of her story together. I anxiously await the release of "In the Smoke" to get another fix of this story!
