The Bodyguard

Book 4: Sexy Men...Savvy Women

Welcome to Sexy Men…Sassy Women

A bestselling author, a medevac pilot, a hotshot lawyer, a bodyguard, a football coach and a children’s book author…all sexy, sensitive men who can be stubborn and infuriating.

A reclusive artist, a CEO, a family court judge, a businesswoman, a college professor and a celebrity food channel host… all successful, smart and sassy women who try to tame the men they love.

In THE BODYGUARD, when Cord McKay saves Stacey Webb from an attack, she has no idea he’s played a devastating role in her past.

After a second incident, she insists he become her bodyguard. Both Cord, who is guilt-ridden, and her father, who hates Cord with a righteous passion, balk at the idea but Stacey wins out.

Though he tries to remain distant and remote, a vehicle accident and a kidnapping attempt bring Stacey and Cord together and nothing can stop the irrepressible attraction and ensuing love between these two very appealing characters.

Don’t miss all the books in the Sexy Men…Sassy Women series. While not connected by characters and plot, in all six books, you’ll find the men sexy and women sassy.
