Peek Inside Her Enemy Protector

By-the-book secret agent Lucas Bendtsen will do anything to keep his country safe—even if that means blackmailing the stepdaughter of a notorious mobster. He'll pose as her fiancé in order to access her stepfather's guarded compound and find out the location of the arms deal. Only a fool would double-cross the Organization, but Ruby doesn't have any choice—not if she's going to save her brother and mother. So she places her life in the hands of a man who turns her on as much as he ticks her off... Their fake engagement is the beginning of a high-stakes game of subterfuge, but when their hearts get involved, Lucas has to decide whether to break the rules or break Ruby's heart.

Enemies can make the most tempting lovers…

By-the-book secret agent Lucas Bendtsen will do anything to keep his country safe—even if that means blackmailing the stepdaughter of a notorious mobster who is about to sell guns to a group of terrorists. The plan? He’ll pose as her fiancé in order to access her stepfather’s guarded compound and find out the location of the arms deal. The problem? Despite her reputation as a heartless femme fatale, Ruby Macintosh is not at all what she seems.

Only a fool would double-cross the Organization, but Ruby doesn’t have any choice—not if she’s going to save her brother and mother from her stepfather. So she places her life in the hands of a man who turns her on as much as he ticks her off…

The fake engagement may be the beginning of a high-stakes game of subterfuge, but when their hearts get involved, Lucas has to decide whether to break the rules or break Ruby’s heart.

"To say these two have smoking hot chemistry is an understatement." - Sub Club Book Reviews

"Light, fun, and full of heat." - I Was Angelized Reviews

"Oh my, this book was awesome! It was full of suspense, secrets and romance. It was a definite page turner." - Goodreads

"An exciting, well written suspenseful romance novel that I could not put down once I started reading." - Goodreads

This is the second book in the Tempt Me series by this author, the first one being ‘His Undercover Princess’ which I’ve also enjoyed reading and reviewed. I actually think it is beneficial to have read the books in sequence as many of the characters are in both stories and the events from the first ...more

Received in exchange for a honest review.

This is a dangerously sexy read. Lucas is definitely delish and has the edge of danger to him. He had a past that is shady but he rose above it and is now the head of the Silver Knights. When first meeting him it seems he is tough as nails and only thinks of ...more

By Debbie April 17, 2018

This is the second book in this series. The main characters from book one make appearances, so you would be more familiar with everyone if you read book one first, but it isn't necessary.

3.5 stars

"Her Enemy Protector" is the first book by Avery Flynn I have read. There is another book "His Undercover Princess" that comes before this one and contains many of the same characters.

By Cynthia November 19, 2016

I just love a story where enemies can’t help themselves and fall in love it really gives me peace of mind that maybe there is still hope for this world. There isn’t anything that Lucas will not do for his county to keep it safe and his queen on the throne. With the threat of an over throw and guns b ...more

By Melanie November 05, 2016

This story started out sort of confusing for me but once I got it all figured out, it ended up being a good read. I always enjoy Avery Flynn's books so for me this was a no brainer if I was going to read it or not!

Ruby and Lucas

A different twist on the enemies-to-lovers trope. Lucas goes under cover to stop an arms transaction and meets the love of his life, although he is, of course, resistant. Good story but some spelling/incorrect word usage detracts a but. ...more

By Scarlett November 19, 2016

The premise of this book was not a new one - the idea of a fake engagement to get what one (or sometimes both) individuals want. The blackmailing aspect was a little new - but we generally know how these things end: the two people end up falling for each other and realize they have deeper feelings t ...more
