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.
“Protector for Hire” is the forth book in Tawna Fenske’s “Front and Centre” series and like its predecessors can be read as a standalone.
Schwartz has spent almost a decade alone at his cabin in Montana wilderness. He’s a retired US Army soldier who has some issues from his last tour o... ...more
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

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
I am seriously going to miss the Patton family and their own brand of craziness but what a way to wrap up a series. A man who has been successfully hiding from his life and his family for 10 years and a woman who needs to disappear for her own... ...more

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.

Books, Coffee & Passion
Protector For Hire is the fourth book in Front and Center Series and it made me want to read the first three books. It can be read as a standalone without difficulties but I got curious about the previous stories, so I'll probably read the first books in this series.
Oh, how I loved this one. Much like the rest of the series, this was a total win for me.
This time is the turn for Schwartz to tell his story. We heard a little bit in the previous books, but now we can finally put the pieces together.
I loved Schwartz and Janelle, though I was more partial to Schw... ...more
Hilarious, humorous, fun, sexy and adorable story, that left me smiling.
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.
Schwartz Patton is hiding. He blames himself for the deaths of his comrades and has cut himself off from his family. He lives in a cabin in the Montana woods with his dog. His brother tracks him down and asks him to protect his fiancée's sister. Janelle Keebler saw her ex-husband murdered a rival... ...more

The first I have read in this series (or by this author) Protector For Hire managed to keep me intrigued and interested while providing just enough information from previous books to not feel overwhelmed.

I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review, and here it is.
This is the first novel I've read by this author, and it's a gem! There have been quite a number of Wounded Warrior romances , but they generally deal with physical wounds, while Protector for Hire deals with emotional/... ...more
Well, I had a nice little review all written up and then it got flushed into the internet toilet somehow. The jist of it was:
