Possession is nine-tenths of the law. And she belongs to him.
Ginger Peet has never regretted leaving Nashville with her sister and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton. Now she’s settled in Chicago with Lieutenant Derek Tyler, spending her nights pressed against every inch of his hard, dominating, and panty-meltingly-hot body.
And there’s nowhere Derek would rather be than reminding Ginger—thoroughly and exquisitely—that she belongs to him. But then trouble hits the streets of Chicago. The kind of bust the old-school boys call a “widow-maker.” To keep Ginger safe, Derek’s forced to shut her out and keep himself away from her luscious body, or risk losing her forever.
But Ginger has just been presented with some, er, unexpected news. And right now, it’s best she keeps that news to herself. Because Derek stands to lose far more than he knows, until he takes the law—and Ginger—into his own hands one last time…

5 Sweet little treat Stars
“You do what I tell you, Ginger. Or no tongue between your legs.”
In this little novella we get to see a little more of Ginger, and Derek and I for one am glad. I needed more of them. At the end of the first book I thought I would like to see a little more into their fu... ...more
This wonderful, short novella gives us an update on what's going on with Ginger and Derek from the first book in the series, Protecting What's His.
I really like this couple and was thrilled that TB decided to write more of their story even if it's really short. Also, while I'm not caught up with... ...more
Loved this.. Angst can work so well when you know you can trust the author implicitly to keep the characters loyal. Tessa does alphas like no other. Derek will always be a favorite of mine. ...more
This was a short, sweet, steamy read.
Perfect follow up for Ginger and Derek with just the right amount of angst, longing, love and sex. I'd also forgotten just how Alpha Derek was - lordy, lordy that boy had me wanting him bad!!
Ok really Dolly??? No God no but I guess it makes sense for them. They are so crazy together. It was cute and sweet.
However, What I did not understand is why he needed to keep his job from her? That was not cool at all. He was just so cold, how could she not worry about their relationship. It ma... ...more
Before I write this review, I have a confession to make: I read this at 3am in the morning and when I fell asleep, I promptly had an... intense dream about a hot classmate of mine. Clearly the effect of reading romance - and erotica, on top of that - before bed. The dream itself wasn't erotic o... ...more
OMG! I love these two but geez....my emotions were ripped to shreds there for a little while. ...more
Ya sé que lo prometí, pero la carne es débil. Ginger y Derek, Derek y Ginger. Me encanta esta pareja, la inseguridad de Ginger la entiendo totalmente y Derek se puso en plan legal así que love love por todos lados. ...more
More of Ginger and Derek.
I loved this! I loved their first book and this is a wee bit of decadent chocolate desert HEA. The author dances with hurting our feelings by maligning one MC or the other. But she does it masterfully.
Derek and Ginger's relationship has been created with trust through a... ...more
Derek is planning to a big bust of some mobsters. The kind that’s called a widowmaker. So he decides to pull back some from Ginger to protect her. Um, yeah, ok. And of course Ginger finds out that she’s bringing a little Tyler into the world. But really, this is about their hot sex.
The Bottom Lin... ...more
Ok so I loved it!!Yes he should of told her and not left her in dark for a week but damn I can't stay mad at him! I love this couple :)My only negative is why did it have to end lol I want more!!I want to see them get married and find out what they are having !!! Please tell me the baby is not na... ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. It was a great addition to a great story. That being said, I was disappointed in the lack of epilogue. It was a HFN ending.
It would have been 5 stars if there was an epilogue. ...more
I had totally forgot how much I missed Dereck and his filthy mouth. I loved getting a little extra from him and Ginger, of course I always love to see tough guys reactions to that news, but love the big arrival too. Maybe another shorty?? Lol. Perfect short in between. ...more
I'm not a big fan of novellas; I need a little more substance. Still, this was a cute ending to Ginger and Derek's story. ...more
Protecting What's Theirs by Tessa Bailey
Erotic Romance, Novella to follow Protecting What's His.
“I’ll never be cured of my jealousy. Not now. Not in fifty years.” He gripped Ginger’s hips, worried her ear with his teeth. “And don’t pretend for a second that you don’t love it.”
Good Companion Novella
Thank you to Karla for alerting me about this novella when I posted my review of Protecting What's His. I loved Ginger and Derek from that romantic suspense novel, and this novella is a follow-up to their story one year later.
Unfortunately Lieutenant Derek doesn't do such a... ...more

"Sometimes I look at you... and I can't breathe around these feelings."
"How can you not know by now ? I wouldn't make it a fucking day without you. I don't remember a time before you. It's all a blur right up until the minute you walked in."
Oh Derek... you really have a way with words !
Derek had a hard time persuading Ginger to take a chance on a relationship but he promised they would always be honest with each other. Now he is hiding something to protect her but his guilt is making Ginger feel that he is slipping away from her. Ginger has some major news of her own... ...more
I loved Protecting What's His. I think Ginger and Derek are my favorite Tessa Bailey couple, so I was excited to read their novella. I know a novella is supposed to be short, but I felt like it needed some more meat on its bones. Another 40 pages or so would have made it perfect. And a glimpse in... ...more
