Haunted by his time in Iraq, former soldier Schwartz Patton goes off the grid, retreating deep into Montana's untamed wilderness. Now, ten years into his self-imposed solitude, his brother tracks him down and asks for a favor. A woman is in danger, and she needs help...and Schwartz is the only one who can protect her.
Designer-loving city girls like Janelle Keebler don't belong in the wilderness. Unless, of course, they're witnesses to a murder by their psycho drug-trafficking ex-husbands. Still, Janelle can't help the immediate physical response she has to her sexy-as-sin protector that leaves her wanting more than she could have ever imagined. Even if he does make terrible coffee....
Every word, every touch, every kiss ignites a need Schwartz thought he'd lost forever. He can't stop the desperate attraction simmering between him and Janelle, even if he wanted to. Even if it means it could get them both killed.
Each book in the Front and Center series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
A little cheesy and ridiculous at times, this book was good enough that I actually finished it! I have a bad dropping habit if I am not interested enough, and the two leads in this were cute enough together to keep me with it til the end. The other can write a good sex scene, but the stuff in between needs a lot of work. It was funny, and did make me laugh quite a few times, but don’t write a bodyguard romance and not be able to write suspense well. It just makes it fall flat. And this fell very flat in that aspect. But if you just want an easy read with two people trapped In a cabin, this is what you want.
If you want two people trapped in a cabin with amazing chemistry and actual suspense and real bad guys, check out Cherry Adair’s
Kiss and Tell. This book made me desperately wish there was an audiobook of that one.

Protect My Heart
Schwartz is haunted by his service in Iraq and has lived the past last 10 years in a self-imposed isolation. Janelle is a city girl running scared from her ruthless and possessive ex-husband. Both are dealing with traumatic memories and the feeling of guilt for mistakes they’ve made. The question becomes can they give themselves permission to be loved by the other before their past catches up with them.
After my initial thoughts that I had heard it all before, I was delighted to be pulled into Janelle and Schwartz's story. The side characters, including the Moose, added to the tale. Definitely worth a credit.
