Ember Harris has sworn to save lives. Joseph King is an assassin. Death is their common ground, only they stand on opposing sides. Thrown together they find that in life, like death, everyone needs a Guardian.
A dead man’s plea pushes Ember headfirst into a swirling mire of drugs, death and political corruption. Chased by a murderous drug cartel, she runs straight into the arms Joseph King, a former Navy Seal turned assassin.
Protecting Em is Joseph King’s last mission and this time he’ll risk anything, including his life, to keep her safe. As a matter of fact he’d stroll through the sin-stoked fires of hell and gut the devil himself.
OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:
Victoria Marshall didn't cooperate by dying in the Afghani hell-hole like the CIA expected. Defying all probability, a privately-funded black ops group led by a handsome, sexy-as-sin southerner pulled her out of the warlord's prison cell and brought her home. Even half out of her mind with pain Tori knew this man was special. She made a date with the commander to meet one year later at a restaurant of his choice. Keeping that date was the best thing she ever did.
Jacob King found little physically attractive about the woman he saved from the warlord’s camp, though it was hard to see what lay under the filth and suppurating wounds she suffered from countless beatings. He admired her brave humor in the face of her agonizing injuries. This kind of tough-minded woman was someone he'd like to know as a friend. He never expected the leggy, blond bomb-shell in the red dress who showed up for their date.
But then he never expected she would save his life, either. In a world of shadows, smoke, and dangerous covert missions, where people routinely vanish and living one more day was never a given, Tori and Jacob fight to build their happily ever after.
Buy The Book:
Joseph King is a man who knows how to work through his pain. Ember Harris is all about helping people. This is one book that once the action starts; you are not going to want to put the book down. Once thing that I thought was kinda cute was that Em calls him Joey. Can you imagine calling a real physically fit man Joey? Makes you wonder how he it would feel if anyone other than Em called him that. Ember is a good name for the female character because the sex scenes may self-combust the book.
Joseph may be a big alpha military man but he has his weaknesses just like any normal human being. It’s also a little sad that he has had to endure so much and most don’t recognize what he has had to go through in order to keep others safe. He’s one of our unsung heroes. Em is also an unsung hero just by way of her profession. But her current circumstance is what brings these two together – don’t know if I could be as strong.
I wouldn’t mind having an adventure with Joseph but not sure I’d want the kind that he has with Em. But this is why it’s better to read about that type of adventure instead of experiencing it the way Em did. It shows that sometimes you just need the help of others in order for the good guys to win. Make sure to read through the Epilogue because the author gives you a glimpse of the characters that will come to life in the next book of the series. This book made me a fan of Kris Michaels and left me wanting to go back and read the first book.
