Twelve years ago, I gave up the love of my life because my family made the relationship impossible. Now that Ali has come back to me, I'm not going to give her up again.
It's been years since I've seen her, and I know she's hated me all this time. I never expected to see her working as an event planner for one of my father's business partners. But here she is, always snooping around and getting into trouble. I'm supposed to be providing security, but I can't stop thinking about her.
She's up to something, and it might put her in danger. She sees me as the enemy now. Maybe I am, but I'm not going to lose her again. I might be hired to protect the man she's working against, but my heart only wants to protect her.
Protecting the Enemy was originally published as Honor Bound. It has since been expanded, revised, and re-edited.

Second Chance at Love
Another awesome story written by Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams as they penned Protecting the Enemy, the second book in their Protector’s Series. These two ladies are definitely a dynamic duo in the author world. This is a second chance story between Sebastian and Ali. When he was nineteen Sebastian listened to his father and gave up the girl he loved. Fast forward twelve years and Sebastian is a body guard for Ali’s event planner friend. Ali is there to uncover information of Sebastian’s father, the man who ruined not only their relationship but also her family. Sometimes attraction and chemistry does not die with time and separation.
Protecting the Enemy is a great story with plenty of drama and danger. This is a story about redemption and second chances. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting it down. I recommend this book to other readers. It makes for a wonderful, light easy read. Although this book is part of a series it is a standalone story.
