The Protector: MAC is the first book in the Cover Six Security series by Lisa B. Kamps. This book follows on from Covered By A Kiss, A Cover Six Security Novella. Even though you could read this book as a standalone, I recommend reading the novella as it is where a lot of the characters backstories are shared, and where their story ‘begins’- although we originally meet them in The Chesapeake Blades Series (I think it’s in Loving Hard- Book #2). So, I guess this is a bit of a spin-off from that series.
Without giving too much away, I can divulge that Gordon MacGregor (Mac) is ex-military who is now working at Cover Six Security, specializing in dark-ops private security. He left the military under a bit of a cloud, which has left him feeling disappointed by the whole experience. He is badly scarred, physically and emotionally- and has a lot of inner turmoil. When he met Tabitha (TR), he was completely bowled over by her- and she seemed to see beyond his outer appearance. This is a woman he could fall hard for. But, instead of drawing her closer, her pushes her away.
TR is a reporter who’s having a bit of an unlucky time lately. She just seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But Mac seems to think there might be more to it . He’s sure there is a real threat to her safety and is determined to do everything he can to protect her. Has the story she’s been working on drawn attention her way and put a target on her back? What lengths will Mac go to in order to protect her? Will he let down his defences and take a chance on love? With a powerful adversary intent on destroying her/them, there is a lot of intensity and suspense that will keep you flipping the pages to discover what happens. Will TR and Mac make it through unscathed, or will their deranged and powerful enemy win out in the end? You really should read all the thrilling details for yourself- you are sure to love it as much as I have! This is definitely my favourite story of Ms. Kamps, so far.
The story has so much emotion, suspense, intrigue, action, drama, romance, revenge, hidden agendas, deception, secrets, lies, risks, chemistry, sizzle- and with such superb characters you won’t want to put the book down until you have read every single word!! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series now!!! Bring on Book #2!!
Thank you, Ms. Kamps!
