What I'm Reading...
Here's the information from her Jessica Bird website:
A beautiful woman pursued by a serial killer. A hard-hearted bodyguard. A passionate love that changes the course of two lives.
Grace Hall lives in the lap of luxury, surrounded by gorgeous things and glittering people but when a serial killer marks her for death, she finds herself totally alone.
She hires John Smith as her protector and finds a passion she never dreamed of, in a tough man from a different world. Beneath his brash self-confidence, she sees the potential for true love in him and it becomes clear that, although he's nothing she's ever wanted before, he's everything she needs.
At first, Smith is convinced Grace is only what she appears to be - rich, pampered, beautiful - so he isn't concerned about the hot desire he feels for her. He's a man with total faith in his self-control and he has no intention of getting involved. She's a client, she's in danger and she's not his type, anyway. But the longer he's with her, the more he's impressed by her courage and strength, tested by her honesty and intelligence, tempted by her very presence. Soon, he realizes he'll never find another like her and he's caught between what's professional and what he wants.
As the killer gets closer, and the emotional stakes get higher, Grace and Smith face a crucial choice. Whether to follow the rules or follow their hearts.
I can't begin to tell you how glad I am I picked up this book. It's good, but it's nothing like the BDB books. Her voice is soooo different, and it all gives me hope. Maybe I really can get better over time! LOl
Have a fantastic weekend!!
Peace and love,
