She’s sworn to protect…

But does that include a speeding celebrity?

Violet Hawks is a by-the-books police officer—so when she catches a man speeding, she arrests him. Only, the man is famous race car driver Josh Stevens. To make amends, Josh launches a charm campaign, and it works on the small town…and on Violet. But when Josh is connected to an investigation, Violet begins to wonder—can she trust her instincts when her heart is involved?


My Review

Hers to Protect was a really good story. This was the first book that I have read by this author, and now I look forward to reading more of her books in the future!

Although this story is the eleventh in a series, I had no trouble stepping in and enjoying the setting and the characters.

At first, I wasn’t sure if I would like Josh Stevens very much. He seemed very cocky toward the beginning of the book, as he reacted to being arrested by the heroine of the story, Violet Hawks. However, I quickly began to like Josh as I learned his back story and saw that his behavior was a bit of a protection mechanism.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Josh and Violet and the line they had to walk between attraction and Violet’s duty to her job. I didn’t always agree with the decisions they made, but I still anxiously turned the pages to see how things would work out for them.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    I’ve read a few books in this series, and I do love how even though they’re a series, you can jump in anywhere and read them! This one sounds like another winner!

    The cover is so romantic! I don’t get the Hallmark Channel, otherwise I would surely tune in!

    I am a Hallmark junkie so there is a good chance I will be watching it. I am interested in Josh’s background.
