Psychologist Sarabeth Lucking’s life is turned upside down when the upscale couples’
retreat she works for winds up embroiled in the biggest scandal of the year. With her reputation in tatters, she can’t imagine things getting worse, until her former co-workers are murdered, one by one. A bad-ass, ex-Army Ranger might be able to keep her safe, but something tells her she’s getting more than she bargained for...

Gavin McClintock grew up on the streets of Edinburgh, and protecting prissy Dr. Stick-Up-Her-Rear isn’t high on his list of things to do. Still, a promise is a promise, and he’ll need a clear head if he’s going to keep her off the growing list of victims. He didn’t count on the fire in her, or how distracted he’d be by her. As the flames grow hotter, he starts to wonder if she’s the one who needs protecting.

Will Sarabeth and Gavin outrun a killer and give into the passion burning between them?

Guardian for Hire had a perfect mix for me.  A great heroine with great inner strength just waiting to get out and a super hot hero that is an amazing gentleman willing to do anything to keep her safe.  Throw in a lot of drama and a couple near death experiences and you just can't put this one down.

Sarabeth seems stubborn and weak at the beginning, but she readily embraces the life of being protected when she finally realizes her life is in danger.  She pulls from her repertoire of action flick lines to help her cope and Gavin thinks it's just adorable.  Neither wants to admit their attraction at first - it's just the result of being forced together in a tense situation right?  Wrong!  Even Gavin's partner Maddy can see the sparks they don't want to admit exist.  (And Maddy is quite the character in her own right as well).

This book is perfect for anyone who likes strong characters with a bit of intense action thrown in alond the way.
