Review Her Unlikely Bodyguard by Lorraine Nelson

Title: Her Unlikely Bodyguard
Source: Request
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: Novel (ebook 211pgs)
Release Date : June 15 2012 from Breathless Press 

 A stalker who wants revenge… 
A past flame rekindled…
 Jemma Leigh's summer just got interesting.

Jemma Leigh Harding has drawn the attention of an unknown stalker and returns to her hometown of Somerville, a safe haven—or so, she thinks—on the east coast of Canada.

Theodore Garrity is the last person she expects to see, considering how easily he walked away from her after graduation to join the army.

Their past history involves secrets Jemma Leigh is not ready or willing to share. When it becomes clear the stalker has followed her home, Teddy becomes her unlikely bodyguard. Will the terror and past hurts separate them forever? Or will love blaze a fresh path for their future?

 Cute story within the "I need a hero" niche.

We all loved the knight in shining armor saving the princess from the dragon in our fairy tales. So, why not modernize it with an ex-army special ops commando saving the school teacher from a stalker?  Sure, the stalker thing has been played out before, but when I'm in the mood for a 'knight' in a contemporary setting there's no better route. 

While the twists and turns in the plot were definitely sensationalized (think Lifetime movie) Her Unlikely Bodyguard  is a fun summer read.
