Forbidden Hero: A brother’s best friend & bodyguard romance


SKU: 9798841674481 Category: Tag: Product ID: 1037793


Things that awaken my inner rage monster (in no particular order):

  • The F-nugget who thought it would be fun to try to kidnap me. Throwing me in a trunk? Rude!
  • My oldest brother – For insisting I need constant babysitters since I’m in danger. Oops! Did I say babysitters? I meant bodyguards.
  • Same brother again – For having a ridiculously hot best friend, then assigning him as my primary bodyguard and telepathically forbidding him from dating me, even though I’m starting to suspect that he’s seriously crushing on me. (The best friend is crushing, not my brother. Don’t be weird.)
  • My brother’s best friend (i.e.: my new bodyguard) – For having a jaw so chiseled it could probably slice through a huge block of aged cheddar, and yet, not letting me lick it. (His jaw, not the cheddar. Now you’re waking up my rage monster.)
  • My bodyguard’s stupid rules – For forbidding me from flirting with him, touching him more than necessary, and kissing him again. Even though he started it!
  • Wine – For having calories.
  • My ex-husband – For breathing.
  • The law – For prohibiting st*bbing.
  • My heart and bodyguard – Both for making me fall in love again… the audacity!

Author’s Note:
Forbidden Hero is a stand-alone romantic comedy mixed with a romantic suspense and is the second book in the Redleg Security series. Each book in the series features a different couple’s love story and happily ever after. Although it’s not necessary to read all books in the series, for those who love reading all books in order, start with “Heartbreak Hero” to avoid any minor potential spoilers for side plots that may overlap from book to book.

This novel is written in alternating first person point of view and contains steamy open-door scenes, profanity, a strong heroine with mild anger issues due to her bumpy past, a hero who will make you laugh one minute and swoon the next (especially when he helps her reclaim her body). There’s page-turning action and all the feels, along with a healthy dose of humor. There is an HEA, no cheating, and no “other woman” drama.

Tropes are: Brother’s Best Friend, Secret Relationship/Forbidden Love, and Friends to Lovers with a dash of forced proximity.

Since this is an action-packed, suspenseful, bodyguard novel, it features some content that sensitive readers may like to know about before reading. More details about these topics are available after the Dedication in the front of the e-book and will be posted to my website by publication date.
