Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.

Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.

With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.

Liza's Review:

I absolutely adore the Bodyguard Bad Boy series from Carly Phillips and was super excited to read her cross over book in Lexi Blake's Masters & Mercenaries series. Ms. Philips totally delivered with His to Protect to be a great addition to both series.

I loved every single minute of His to Protect! Talia Shaw is super smart, and knows to call in help when she finds herself in trouble. I love when she calls her brother Tate for help, he immediately contacts his best friend Shane Landon to help Talia out. All I can say is the first time Talia sees Shane again after years, pretty much steamed up my kindle screen. OMG so HOT!

The attraction between Talia and Shane was obvious from the moment they saw each other again. I loved that Shane was so very protective of Talia and did everything in his power to keep her safe and fought his attraction to her along the way. Seriously the sexual tension was so hot and once they finally got together I was fanning myself. Ms. Phillips totally delivered smoking hot love scenes in His to Protect. I also loved the elements of suspense in this story. It never overshadowed the romance and was just the right amount to keep me engaged with the suspense elements until the end.

His to Protect is part of the Masters & Mercenaries Crossover Collection, and I plan to read each and every one of them, as well as the books I've missed out on in the Masters & Mercenaries series. Carly Phillips once again delivers a fabulous fast-paced romance that will keep her readers reading an wanting more.
