She would trust him with her life. But can either of them trust their hearts?
Rory Sutton Whitfield isn’t a princess, even though her wealthy family insists on treating her like one. Fresh from her travels and finally achieving the independence she craves, the last thing she wants is to become swept up in family problems. But her half-brother has disappeared and her grandfather insists on hiring a bodyguard for her. Rory won’t be controlled by anyone, especially not a taciturn detective like Vince Maroney, a man of few words who nonetheless arouses disturbing emotions.
Vince Maroney has learned his lesson about playing the hero; he stepped up once and it cost him everything. But when he saves the granddaughter of one of Sydney’s wealthiest men, he finds himself embroiled in events beyond his control. Rory is beautiful, smart, independent. But her family is all secrets and lies, money papered over injustices. Rory makes him feel things he thought long dead, but the pains of the past create distance, and she comes from a completely different world. How can one of Sydney’s pampered princesses ever find common ground with her reluctant bodyguard?
I really enjoyed this book. The action starts right at the beginning when Vince saves Rory during a hit and run incident. He is then hired by her grandfather to protect her. Neither Vince nor Rory are ecstatic by this move but they decide to make the best of it and they work together to figure things out. The mystery is intriguing and unpredictable. I thought I had it all figured out but the author spun the story in a different direction and kept me glued to the pages right to its explosive ending.
I'd definitely read more by the author.
I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
