After a difficult childhood and a turbulent stint in the military, Declan Burke finally got his act together. Now he’s a battle-hardened professional bodyguard who takes his job at McKay-Taggart seriously and his playtime – and his playmates – just as seriously. One thing he never does, however, is mix business with pleasure. But when the mysterious, gorgeous Suzanne D’Angelo needs his protection from a stalker, his desire for her burns out of control, tempting him to break all the rules…even as he’s drawn into a dark, dangerous world he didn’t know existed.
Suzanne is an earthbound angel on her critical first mission: protecting Declan from an emerging supernatural threat at all costs. To keep him close, she hires him as her bodyguard. It doesn’t take long for her to realize that she’s in over her head, defenseless against this devastatingly sexy human who makes her crave his forbidden touch.
Together they’ll have to draw on every ounce of their collective training to resist each other as the enemy closes in, but soon it becomes apparent that nothing could have prepared them for the menace to their lives…or their hearts.
Well I thought this installment was always going to be the hardest for me to immerse myself in because it combines contemporary and paranormal world series’…. I was not sure I could suspend my belief to embrace this story…but I was wrong because this crossover was just as compulsive reading as the others in the collection; the Demonica Underworld and M and M worlds married together seamlessly.
Declan Burke works for the ubiquitous McKay-Taggart security and Suzanne D’Angelo (the job is in the title, so to speak) is an earth bound angel with a deadly, other world stalker… the premise is a repeat of several of the other crossover books in the collection but the alternative universe gives it a completely new perspective..
I thoroughly enjoyed this story although truth be told I think I would have been even more appreciative if I had been familiar with the Demonica world before commencing ..that said it was a worthy addition to the collection and even though it was longer than the other novellas in the series I actually read it in one sitting…
