Peek Inside Hard to Protect

Black Ops agent Will Berwick doesn’t care what his orders are; he’s not taking the enemy—the lovely but arctic Dr. Angel Treherne—to bed. Oh, he’ll root out her secrets, but on his own terms. But Angel trusts no one—certainly not Will

Some Black Op missions are too dark—even for him.

Volcanic hot and ambitious Special Agent Will Berwick doesn’t give a damn what his orders are; he’s not taking the enemy—the lovely but arctic Dr. Angel Treherne—to bed. Oh, he’ll root out her secrets, but on his own terms.

Caught up in a tangled web of deceit and betrayal, Angel trusts no one—certainly not alpha-cocky, cunning Will Berwick. First he’s hostile, then he’s charming. Why? What’s he hiding? With her life on the line, she needs to know. Preferably without losing her heart in the process.

 "I've always liked Incy Black's writing. It's flashy, confident, with just the right tinge of exaggeration, sharp insights and quotable quotes that make all my senses sing and tingle. 'Hard to Protect' has all these hallmarks and more." - Piper Kelly, Netgalley

Sometimes Will's logic is just hard to understand, “nope,” he interrupted, arms folded across his chest. “I had you locked up so I couldn’t eff you, because I sure as h*** wanted to.” I totally agree with Angel its hard to get comfortable if simething keeps poking you:
“You’ve got an erection the... ...more

I was really excited to start reading Hard To Protect. I've read the others in this series and I know this author has a way of writing that makes you remember.

By Meghan February 19, 2017

This was a deep, thought-provoking book about the horrors of childhood trauma and the effects of war (both foreign and domestic) on the human psyche. I experienced so many emotions right alongside the characters, whether it was Angel, Will, or one of their family members, it opened up all my sens... ...more

This is the second book from this author I've read having heard loads on social media about Ms Black. And like her other book I really didn't like the cover as I'm not a fan of black ops or military type books and esp not guns.

Yet given that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Most of the way thru i... ...more

I have read all three books in this series and have loved all of them. I was hoping Will would get his own story since I really liked him in the first story. Will and Angel hold their feelings and have a hard time letting the other in. Their journey to love is a great story. There are a lot of tw... ...more

Incy Black

About the author

Incy Black

It took a swan dive from a roof to convince Incy (aged 5) she wasn't an avenging fairy and no, she most certainly couldn't fly. Bruised, but undefeated, she retreated deeper into her imaginary world populated with the brave and the poisonous. When not fighting injustice and righting wrongs on "Planet Incy" she works as a Marketing Director. (Unfortunately, her law degree languishes unused, the distinction between good and evil proving too worrisome in real life.) Her five children are well versed in what scares her (most things) and delight in pushing her neurotic buttons, at their peril.
