After losing her family, and then nearly her life when she was held hostage in Africa, grieving widow Raina Lowery only wants to put the past behind her. Instead, she’s finding her son’s toys in the woods and dodging a gunman’s bullets. Raina is trapped in a real-life nightmare—until Jackson Miller reappears. Months ago, saving Raina was Jackson’s job as a member of HEART, a private rescue team. But now it’s personal. The hardened protector wants to give Raina—and himself—a second chance at love. But first he has to save her…again.
Mission: Rescue—No job is too dangerous for these fearless heroes.
When I go looking for a book to read that’s just for me, I look for anything by Shirlee McCoy. She’s a top notch romantic suspense writer and Protective Instincts was another book proving so.
Although I found some plot points predictable, I kept turning the pages for the well developed characters and chemistry between them. I especially liked Samuel, and definitely enjoyed Jackson. Raina’s fears were realistic and played out well.
There are some summer days left to toss a book in your bag and head for the beach. I think you’ll enjoy taking Protective Instincts along with you.
