GUARDIAN FOR HIRE (For Hire #2) by Christine Bell
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date January 13, 2014
Psychologist Sarabeth Lucking’s life is turned upside down when the upscale couples’ retreat she works for winds up embroiled in the biggest scandal of the year. With her reputation in tatters, she can’t imagine things getting worse, until her former co-workers are murdered, one by one. A bad-ass, ex-Army Ranger might be able to keep her safe, but something tells her she’s getting more than she bargained for…
Gavin McClintock grew up on the streets of Edinburgh, and protecting prissy Dr. Stick-Up-Her-Rear isn’t high on his list of things to do. Still, a promise is a promise, and he’ll need a clear head if he’s going to keep her off the growing list of victims. He didn’t count on the fire in her, or how distracted he’d be by her. As the flames grow hotter, he starts to wonder if she’s the one who needs protecting.
Will Sarabeth and Gavin outrun a killer and give into the passion burning between them?
REVIEW: GUARDIAN FOR HIRE is the second storyline in Christine Bell’s adult, contemporary For Hire romance series. Although this is the second in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty. Some of the previous storyline characters play a minor role in the story. This is Sarabeth and Gavin’s story.
Sarabeth is a psychologist whose life is about to spiral out of control when former co-workers and colleagues are dying under mysterious circumstances. Believing Sarabeth is next in line, Gavin McLintock is hired to keep Sarabeth safe and alive. But life on the run is not what Sarabeth had in mind until she finds herself holed up in Gavin’s fortress of a home. One thing leads to another and Sarabeth begins to fall for the man hired to keep her safe.
The relationship between Sarabeth and Gavin begins slowly as Gavin endeavors to keep Sarabeth safe but she has plans where Gavin is concerned. The sexual heat begins almost immediately and as the story progresses, so too, does the building love. But Gavin was hired to do a job and in the end, he will walk away from the woman with whom he is falling in love.
Christine Bell brings together a story of suspense, romance and a little sex. Guardian For Hire is a tale about two people brought together under dangerous circumstances and in the end Sarabeth is the one to keep Gavin safe when he willingly puts himself in danger to protect the woman under his care. If you like a romantic storyline with a little bit of everything, Guardian For Hire is the perfect read for a lazy afternoon.
