Peek Inside Protector for Hire

Ten years ago, former soldier Schwartz Patton retreated to the untamed beauty of the Montana wilderness. Now a woman is in danger, and she needs help...and Schwartz is the only one who can protect her. Designer-loving city girls don't belong in the wilderness, and Janelle Keebler knows it. Still, Janelle can't help the immediate physical response she has to her solitary, gorgeous protector. Every word, every touch, Schwartz can't stop this attraction even if he wanted to. Even if it means it could get them both killed.

Keeping her safe is crucial. Guarding his heart is impossible.


Haunted by his time in Iraq, former soldier Schwartz Patton goes off the grid, retreating deep into Montana’s untamed wilderness. Now, ten years into his self-imposed solitude, his brother tracks him down and asks for a favor. A woman is in danger, and she needs help…and Schwartz is the only one who can protect her.


Designer-loving city girls like Janelle Keebler don’t belong in the wilderness. Unless, of course, they’re witnesses to a murder by their psycho drug-trafficking ex-husbands. Still, Janelle can’t help the immediate physical response she has to her sexy-as-sin protector that leaves her wanting more than she could have ever imagined. Even if he does make terrible coffee…


Every word, every touch, every kiss ignites a need Schwartz thought he’d lost forever. He can’t stop the desperate attraction simmering between him and Janelle, even if he wanted to. Even if it means it could get them both killed.

Praise

"The author, this book, the whole series... absolutely outstanding." -- Claire R., Goodreads Review
 
"Protector for Hire is able to go from laugh out loud funny to scorchingly hot in a way not many books are able to achieve. I loved Schwartz's journey and Janelle's influence. If this is truly the end of the Front and Center series it went out with a bang." -Ashley, Books on Migs
 
"Protector for Hire is truly one of the best romantic suspense books I have read so far this year!" -Cara's Book Boudoir
 
"Schwartz is hands down my favorite Patton sibling." -Musings and Ramblings
 
"The story is well written, and the dialog is brilliant, with the humor, word associations, and felicitous marks. The characters are developed, the family unit tight and a bit nuts, just over all truly enjoyable tale." - Books and Spoons

4 - "It's been a while." Stars!

The author, this book, the whole series… absolutely outstanding. The Patton family all in their own unique ways have been pretty easy to fall in love with, and Schwartz Patton, the elusive and up to this book pretty much unknown elder brother is no exception. I have... ...more

It is without any pretension that Tawna Fenske accomplished an awesome job at putting a huge smile on my face for a few hours. Second time reading this author and I can say it won’t be the last.

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I loved Protector for Hire!

Loved both Schwartz and Janelle, they were both likable and relatable characters, loved their humor and banter. I found myself laughing out loud and smiling non stop.

Sheridan. MacArthur. Grant. Schwarzkopf. You’d think I was talking about American military men and in a way I am, but I’m not.

Oh, how I loved this one. Much like the rest of the series, this was a total win for me.
