Steamy, action packed and just a smidge of suspense

His To Protect by Carly Phillips

Carly Phillips has been one of my go-to authors for over a year now and she never fails to disappoint. I am also a fan of Lexi Bake’s early Master and Mercenaries books, so when I read that there was going to be a little “cross over” with Carly Phillips writing a story in the M&M world I was very keen to read it.

Talia Shaw is a keen and super talented scientist who has developed a cure for a disease which could cost big pharmaceutical companies a lot of money and when she is targeted at her place of work, Talia’s big brother sends her to his best friend – and Talia’s old high school crush – Shane Landon. Shane is now a bodyguard working at McKay-Taggart (**squee** crossover!!) and once he realises Talia needs his protection, it’s all systems go.

What follows is a fairly fast paced, action packed story that is filled with plenty of chemistry and heat between the two leads. Carly always writes books that have a great balance between plot and steamy sex scenes and “His to Protect” is no different. And I absolutely loved that we got an update about Ian Taggart from Lexi Blake’s M&M series because I always had a soft spot for the head of McKay-Taggart.

This is a great read and I expected nothing less from the talented Carly Phillips. Definitely one to add to your TBR!!
