Dive into the first book in this fantastic new series set in the near future from New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart!

I found the blurb for this book intriguing.
Nina Bronson signed on to serve her country as a soldier but after she died she ended up as so much more.
I didn’t have a choice about the tech, you know. I’d signed that agreement when I went into the service, giving them the right to use my body as they saw fit in the service to my country. I thought that meant donating my organs, something like that. I had no idea it meant they could keep my corpse alive long enough to experiment on it. I didn’t k ...more

Megan Hart’s The Protector trilogy is set in the near future, in a world which has suffered a Second Cold War, massive environmental damage following an abortive attempt to colonise the moon and the near destruction of the planet’s computer infrastructure when an unknown hacker wiped out around ninety percent of the world’s servers and back-up data, deleting bank accounts, personal data and c ...more
I had a hard time at the beginning of Dangerous Promise. But, as the story progressed and I got invested in the characters, it grew on me. In fact, I can't wait to start Wicked Attraction to see how everything gets resolved.between Nina and Ewan.
Ewen started off as an egotistical sphincter (in Nina's words). He refused to allow her to protect him in the way she was accustomed to. But, Nina is just as stubborn as he is and eventually gets her way. Besides, he requested her specifically t ...more
Set in a near future (a date is not specified, but I’m guessing late 21st/early 22nd century), Dangerous Promise introduces readers to kick-ass female bodyguard Nina Bronson, one of fifteen former soldiers who were all ‘enhanced’ using newly invented nano-technology which both saved their lives and has given them greater strength an ...more
Dangerous Promise is a science fiction (I think) romance set in the near future written by Megan Hart. I read it because Megan Hart wrote it — it's as simple as that. I didn't even have to read the full summary to know I would be reading it. All I needed to know was that one of my favorite authors wrote it.
Science fiction and futuristic stories don't find themselves on my reading list often, probably because authors tend to set their books in a future time that's far from something to look forwa ...more
First, and I didn’t realize this, the entire series follows Nina and Ewan. I assumed book two would have a different hero and heroine, so I was expecting more to happen in this book. Dangerous Promise started very strong for me b ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I've always been a fan of Megan Hart, as you probably have noticed if you follow this blog for any length of time. Her stories are always interesting and to me they delve a little deeper than just a romantic connection. Dangerous Promise is the beginning of a storyline I can't wait to know all about and a heroine ...more
I'm a super Megan Hart fan!
I grabbed this because it was new Megan Hart. I had no idea it was even sci-fi. Thought it was more contemp rom bodyguard troupe. Which it does play with, but it's much more. I enjoyed this, but I didn't relate to the heroine like I usually do. I probably won't finish this series but will def read more Megan Hart.
I liked the idea of an enhanced solider, loved that it was a woman we were reading about, but hated how/why Nina ended up enhanced. She seemed to do a great job at bodyguarding Ewan. Ewan turned me off from the start. He came off as an entitled rich guy, one who thought he de ...more
How much I enjoyed it: 4/5
Like some readers, I didn't realise that the series is about the same couple until I finished the book. So I kept on having anxiety on when are they going reconcile as I get closer to the end. But that aside, even with the slow pace of the plot, it doesn't feel draggy and I quite enjoy the banter between the H/h.
Nina Bronson is human but while her body and mind were once human she is now part cyborg (Technological enhancements ) for lack of a better word. She signed her life away to the military without realizing the could do w ...more
I've been a Megan Hart fan since the way back, loving the incredibly emotional erotic romances that she published. It seems she is branching out over the last few years and crossing genres into the realms of suspense and thrillers. With The Protector series, Megan offers a futuristic romance with an enhanced heroine and billionaire hero struggling through a contentious relationship.
Nina Bronson is a soldier that died in a futuristic war and was brought back as one of fifteen "Enhanced," stronge ...more
A bit disappointing. The premise was a lot more interesting than the actual book. I found the interactions between the H/h a bit underwhelming and the pace choppy. The narrator's flat narration didn't help, especially with the action scenes. I hope the next book gets better.
Nina's basically the female version of your typical ex-military alpha hero, which worked surprisingly well. I like books with strong heroines, b ...more
Not that a role reversal is uncommon in the plethora of romance stories today, but Nina Bronson is a female protagonist unusual enough to make anyone sit up ...more
The story is based in the not so distant future, but the main focus of the story is about the technology that was used on wounded soldiers that had ei ...more
When I read the premise for “Dangerous Promise,” the first book in author Meghan Hart’s Protector Series, I’ll admit, I was intrigued. Typically, I find that stories set in the future hold little appeal. But there was just something about this story that called to me, inciting me to take a chance. And, oh how so very glad I did!
Nina Bronson was a soldier—a soldier that had died. But thanks to an experimental surgery incorporating new technology, Nina was not only saved, but she jo ...more
Both leading lady, Nina Bronson, and leading man, Ewan Donahue, are alphas in their own right. But Ewan's appreciation for, and attraction to, Nina's fighting prowess, speed, strength, and beauty is a refreshing twist; that one never tires of.
Said appre ...more
It surely got an intriguing plot and there is no doubt of how excellent Megan Hart is as a writer and with that, I can’t help but expect it to be good especially knowing that it is something different from her. And sure enough, this turned out to be a decent one. Ewan and Nina are strong characters whom both have interesting stories to tell. Told in Ewan and Nina’s POVs, it shows how both have strength and power in their own way. I like the interaction between these characters and the ...more
