I found this book to be a nice blend of suspense and romance.

Gracie VanDoren is a charming, optimistic police psychologist.
Tyler Clark is former DEA agent whose cover was blown.

I commend Stephanie on her writing abilities, especially in keeping with her characters.Sometimes authors tend to lend an air of unbelievability into the story to make for a more fulfilling response.

Stephanie was able to stay true to her characters and her story, yet still give it everything that was needed for a suspense
Stephanie continues to hold the readers attention in this series with the sixth book in the Emerald Coast 911 series. There is plenty of suspense and surprises around each corner. We get to enjoy uniting with friends from the previous books. Her characters come alive each with their own personalities and quirks.

We met Tyler Clark in Flashpoint. Matt's older brother had been gone for three years as he had been undercover as a DEA agent. His cover was blown with the drug bust and now he has to fin

I enjoyed this quick, fun read. The story flowed with an ease that made it interesting.
Tyler Clark is ex-DEA agent who is being forced to go see the police psychologist before he can become a consultant for the police in his home town. He doesn't have the best attitude going in but things change. Tyler had been deep undercover when his cover was blown. He is now trying to become a consultant for the police in his hometown.

Gracie VanDoren is the psychologist/profiler that Tyler has to convince t
Well, I don't know what I was expecting when I read this book, but it was...moderately exciting. The hero in the story had a past with the DEA, but came back to his hometown wanting a normal life, and the heroine 'Miss Sunshine' the police department psychologist did not do dating and was waiting for Mr. Right. Her problem was finding out about a terrible secret her father kept from her. Now, there's nothing wrong with waiting for Mr. Right, but not dating? I thought that was just a little too m ...more
4 out of 5 stars. Tyler moves back into town after his cover .was blown on previous assignment. He hadn't expected to meet (or fall) for the pretty, young psychologist (Gracie). Tyler is smitten by Gracie'e happy, bubbly personality from the very beginning.

Gracie, wants to wait for the "right person" initially treats their relationship as nothing special but feels a strong attraction to Tyler. When Gracie starts getting threatening letters in the mail, Tyler tries to help. Then things get even
Charline Bonham
Former DEA agent is between jobs when psychologist Gracie VanDoren needs help. Someone is threatening her but she had not taken it serious. Tyler Clark wants to protect her but can he protect his heart. Both has issues with the past and may be what the other needs to move on. I like when the women show common sense and are strong. Gracie is strong but is facing odds she didn't expect.
This was one of my favorite LIS books. I loved how the story unfolded, and had been waiting to the chance to read about Tyler's story after he appeared in his brother, Matt's, story. Great addition to the LIS stories, and a must read for any fan of Love Inspired Suspense, type stories!

Point Blank Protector (Steeple Hill Love Inspired Suspense #241) by Stephanie Newton is the first book I have read by Stephanie Newton and the first one I have read in the "Emerald Coast 911" series. As with most "Love Inspired Suspense" books, I really enjoyed this one. It has a bit of a surprise ending that I never anticipated. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
2 1/2 stars, kind of blah.
An enjoyable read, nothing too romantic, preachy or suspenseful. I did like how an idea mentioned in the middle of this book turned out in the end.
Love Inspired is always good, but I particularly enjoyed this one. The characters are interesting, and the premise creates the suspense that makes the story. Tyler’s family adds another angle that gets deeper with the other books in the series. This is a good, quick read, just right for an evening of totally enjoyable reading since you won’t want to put it down.

Suspense intrigue and romance color point blank protector, when DEA agent Tyler Clark is told he needs to see a psychologist Gracie VanDoren he doesn't expect it to end up being a relationship that leads him and his family into danger, will he find the risk worth it?? Find out by reading Point Blank Protector, you won't be dissapointed!!!
Personally, I like the way Gracie's decision for celebacy was handled and thought Tyler's reaction to it was sweet, but it might come across as a bit preachy to some readers. Overall, though, it was a fun read.
Kathleen Sprout
I don't read a lot of category romances, but this was well written and enjoyable. The characters were likable, andthe plot balanced the suspense and romance perfectly. I'll be looking for more from this author.
I was hooked on this book from page one. I had a hard time putting it down to go to bed. :) It is the first one I have read from this series, and I for sure now need to read the others!
Christine Hayes
Found the main character,Grace, to be stupid at times. Really annoying,I did enjoy Tyler's relationship with his family.
This was an amazing book there is another book to this series call A Baby's Bodyguard! that one is amazing too
I am not fond of romantic thrillers, and my reservations about this book relate mostly to that fact.
another one from Love insprired supense, really good.
edge of my seat suspense...what a twist at the end.
good read, Christian but not too preachy....
