This is one of those series that if you like this subject - you'll like the series. If not, you won't. It really is that simple, and even though the series has been in the romance/adventure category for a good long while, it won't appeal to just anyone.

In this newest release, readers follow their favorite bodyguard, Natasha, as she runs far and long from a crime boss who is after her head. And she has to deal with the fact that she now has her own bodyguard - protected by the one man she can’t seem to get over - her fiancé, Striker. This is a strong woman who became a bodyguard because it’s what she loved to do, so having a man give her instructions and tell her how to hide out is not exactly her style. She and Striker broke off their engagement in one of the previous novels because he wants her to get out of the ‘biz’ and become the ‘safe’ wife and mother.

Donahue is the ultimate boss, and a man by the name of Dean Lanford has broken away from the clan and is making his own name in the world of crime. One of his greatest achievements will be to take out Natasha and bring Donahue to his knees.

As Striker heads them up into the middle of nowhere, to an old cabin that belongs to his family, his ‘helpers,’ Pit and Bigun, come along for the protection detail. Not to mention, Natasha’s dog, Brutus. But they can’t hide for long, as Lanford and his men are hot on their trail - taking out some and eventually wounding Striker.

When Striker has to be led back to a vet’s office in the middle of the woods in order to get treatment, Natasha strikes out on her own. What follows are scenes that rival 24, as this woman takes her stalkers out one by one, trying her best to avoid Lanford and her ultimate fate.

There is no end for Natasha in sight. The next title promised will include poor Natasha, her ‘mending’ relationship with Striker, and a Bridezilla who is about to have the most frightening need for a bodyguard - protection from her own fiancé that she is still determined to marry. Ms. French certainly has the ability to set up scenes and bring her readers with her through some thrilling escapes, as well as some chilling moments and dead-on romance. BUT, if you didn’t begin with Book One of this series, you need to start there in order for these characters to become one of your favorite teams.
