She must protect a baby…
With her secret husband’s help
In this Gold Country Cowboys novel, Jack Thorn gets a surprise call from the woman he married in secret years ago. Shannon Livingston needs his protection for herself and the baby she’s hiding from a biker gang targeting the mother. Now Jack must help Shannon, even if shielding her means pretending to be a true husband to the only woman he’s ever loved…
Guest Post from Dana Mentink
I’ve spent a bit of time in emergency rooms lately. Not to complain, mind you. The asthma related treatments worked like a charm and we were blessed by good care, so I am not grateful. There’s a bonus, too. The emergency room is a great place for people watching! Hour upon hour I spent surveying patients, relatives, nurses and doctors. I came away pondering what it must be like to work in the strange bustle that is an emergency room. That’s where character Shannon Livingston was born.
The E.R doc and nurses must be brilliant problem solvers with nerves of steel because they never know what will roll through their doors. Since they are not responsible for follow up care, they have only a short term relationship with their patients. But what would happen, my fictional mind wanted to know, if one emergency room treatment ensnared Shannon in a “run for your life” scenario? And what if her incredible life saving skills weren’t nearly enough to save her own life, or the baby she’s suddenly become responsible for? Ah me! The perfect scenario for a suspense novel, no? I hope you enjoy Cowboy Bodyguard. I can promise it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

Book Review by Bree Herron
Wow, this story packs a punch of love and suspense into its small pages. I couldn’t put the story down and finished it within hours. Shannon and jack have a huge past that could make a reader wonder what their future will be? Bring in the rival gangs in to Gold Bar and have a baby that is wanted by everyone, you have a great book. I think one point that I always love about the way this author writes, is she has the ability to create smart, witty characters that will have you smiling by the end of each book. I love the banter between Jack and Shannon, the way they communicate was part of the reason I loved this story.
I always know I can turn to this author for a great read that is never anything less than 5 stars in my mind. You don’t want to miss the latest in this series, and I am hoping to see what will be next!
