His to Protect by Karen Rock: Fear is a great motivator. Fear of not living life to the fullest, fear of never his-to-protectgetting over loss, fear is one of the most motivating emotions.

Cassie Rowe knew about fear, but for her anger was what was motivating her, or at least that was what she thought. Once past the anger then she realized it wasn’t really anger at all. However between the loss of her brother and her upbringing she just wasn’t able to see what may have been clear to anyone else.

Mark Sampson might bite your head off if you called him afraid, but deep down he knew it. He lost a man on his last rescue mission and he knew that was affecting him more than he wanted to admit. What he really needed was a stop button on all of the feelings he was having and then he saw her. So correction, he needed her.

A one-night stand that was all Cassie and Mark were looking for, no last names, no promises. Fate has a twisted sense of humor though. Can these two work through their grief and realize that what tears them apart may bring them back together?

This is a hot yet difficult read. The plot is amazing and the words leap off the page to help you actually see the connections between these two. It’s a difficult read because Ms. Rock has captured the grief and the loss of a man who was much admired between these two in an incredibly moving way. This read will tug at your heart almost as much as it tugs at your panties. Can’t wait to see what the next one has in story.
