DEA agent, John Smith knows the significance of December fifteenth to Brenda, but when the head of the Nuevo Cartel escapes federal prison he’s forced to let her face the day without him, but not quite alone.

The Bodyguard - Julie Kavanagh
Gwen is a highly successful Romance writer but runs her life with precision until she is left in the charge of Rob Denning, a driver/ bodyguard for a weekend. She is determined to continue her life in her usual manner which means what she says goes.
He is equally determined to keep her under his control, which means he gets his way. Although Gwen is frightened by the appearance of unexpected envelopes, she is single-minded when it comes to dealing with them. Rob is tall, handsome and very stubborn, and once he sees fear in Gwen’s face, he know he must protect her.
Rob begins to crawl beneath Gwen’s intense protection to discover her vulnerability and she, in turn, finds the perfect man in the bodyguard she hates. Gwen realizes that love can exist outside the pages of her romance novels but will Rob see beneath the bad-tempered facade Gwen uses to shield herself from the world and save her from the danger she refuses to admit to? Can they uncover enough to commence a love to last forever or will the past force them apart?
My REVIEW OF The Bodyguard: Gwen is a cold, hard author of romance novels and she is certainly treating Rob Denning with the ice treatment ! He may just cause her to thaw. This novel does have a few curse words, just to alert readers, not that the novel was reviewed in a negative light based for that. This is another 5-star Christmas romance!
I enjoyed the entire volume so much that I read them all within 12 hours, and did not want to stop to do anything else but I had to do a few things to get ready for the holidays. I love the fact that you can carry these author's books along and read a little bit at a time if you like while getting the gifts wrapped, food bought, and decorations up. I highly recommend this volume of Christmas Romance. I purchased this book from amazon while it was on special: free! I hope you got a copy and if you didn't, get one and curl up with a hot peppermint coffee like one of our characters likes to do. Read to find out who!
