Under His Protection is the first book in the Protect and Defend series. I was hooked from the beginning. The chemistry between Blake and Mason sizzles off the page. The push and pull of Mason fighting his desire for Blake and attempting to stay strictly professional is well written and intriguing to see how he will finally give in. This is a romance so we all know he gives in.
The question that kept me turning the pages in beginning of the book was how he would give in. Once Mason gave in, I was hooked to find out how they would come to terms with their attraction and get their happily ever after.
I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. A must read for anyone looking for a hot, contemporary romance.

He’ll protect her at any cost…
Protect and Defend, Book 1
Protecting the vice president’s daughter is Secret Service agent Mason Russell’s top priority. With the election looming and the party’s hold shaky, Mason’s been given an important assignment – rein the controversial party girl Blake Hewitt in.
He’d like to rein Blake in all right. Keep her under his control and naked beneath him at all times. Blake is the sexiest thing he’s ever seen but she’s strictly off limits. Though she tempts him like no other.
Banished from the capital and sent far away to the family’s vacation home, Blake seizes her chance. She’ll make Mason hers no matter what it takes. But the noble Mason doesn’t make it easy, and danger lurks where they least expect it…
