A pretty school teacher like her had no business in a bar like this.
She's strictly off-limits but I've never been known to follow the rules...


She's funny and reckless.
With her tempting curves and innocent smile,
I find it hard to keep my distance.
I keep tripping over my heart after each time I see her, but my head keeps
trying to hold me back.

I’m addicted to her touch

This is another hit for this author. I love this book! Once again sharp writing and witty humour combines with suspense and danger to entertain on all levels. Sarah is a beautiful, loyal and independent heroine, who is determined to find her brother no matter the risk to herself. Fergus is definitely one of my favourite heroes. He is a charming, smart, silver tongued alpha male - who doesn’t shy away from a fight - especially to protect those in danger. The author again brings back the “friends” ...more

Emelia Blair has become one of my favorites, especially now that we got Fergus's story. Fergus and Sarah were funny and super hot! Holy moly, my phone practically melted from the heat. The suspense was great too in trying to figure out what was going on. I love that everyone else also made an appearance and it was more than a passing mention. I can't get enough. I also can't wait to for the next story and I am wishing we get Agatha and Ian; I can sense they're just going to burn my phone right o ...more

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This lovely romance is about Sarah, with an "h," and Fergus. They meet a Fergus' bar. Something comes over Fergus. An intense need to protect Sarah. Ms. Blair's story offers plenty of action and suspense, and some pretty hot sex scenes! Can there be an HEA? This reader read and read to find out. Also, I'm thinking Ms. Blair may have some additional books coming from this crew. The supporting characters were w ...more

Angels come in all shapes & sizes even in the form of hot and dangerous billionaires pretending to be bartenders.

When innocent primary teacher Sarah walks into the Fergus's bar looking for a street gang member who can help her trace her brother, she is saved by Fergus time and again. They try to trace Sarah's brother while evading gangsters, falling in love and a slew of incidents.

A very emotionally rich book. A light read which I enjoyed thoroughly.

Thoroughy engrossing!

From the very beginning, this book drew me in and had me turning pages without stopping. Fergus and Sarah are such a hot couple, their chemistry palpable. The story line was well developed and the other characters fit perfectly. I enjoyed "Unexpected Protector" immensely and would recommend it to anyone who likes a strong, sexy alpha. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Blair.

A flawless fantastic page turner, just LOVED it!
A charming (the Irish lads can do that to you!) story with every imaginable feeling. Anxiety, danger, an undeniable attraction, humour, raw but tender, that brought the hero & heroine to a place of true love. Tissues recommended if you get emotional. Highly recommended.
I received an ARC & this is my honest & voluntary review.

Hot intense romance for Sarah and Fergus with spine-tingling suspense included. Sarah threw Fergus for a loop with her sweet innocence. She wasn't his usual type but he couldn't help himself. Has all the good feels. Surprising twists. You must read Unexpected Protector by Emelia Blair, it is superb.

Thriller

This book has everything, mystery, romance and suspense. I was trying to figure out who the bad guy was and I was stomped. It was a great ride.

***Review can also be found at Jackie's Book World.***

From the sexy cover to the intriguing synopsis, Blair delivers a steamy romance between a pre-school teacher and a bartender who happen to meet by chance and whose lives are about to change forever.

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Fergus who is working at the bar when he suddenly gets called to stop a fight, which ends up hurting one of the patrons there. She is injured and one of his friends takes her to the hospital to get check

This was great – I love a hero. A woman regardless of threat will do what is necessary to make sure her love ones are out of danger, as it should be; it just helps when a strong alpha appears to make sure nothing happens to his love. This is a story about Fergus and Sarah. She is a kindergarten teacher who is caught in the middle of a bar fight and is saved by Fergus while he is working there as a bartender. She frequents the bar, as she is looking for someone but Fergus notices that she does no ...more

(Review with spoilers)


Second book in the series. I loved this romance and I recommend it.


Fergus and Sarah meet by chance in one of Fergus' bars. He doesn't tell her he owns it, he lets her think he's one of the waiters, and she doesn't tell him why she's really there. It wasn't what they planned, but their lives are intertwined, and they don't want to lose each other.

I love Sarah. She doesn't think about the danger she can run into, she only wants to help her brother. She doesn't want anything t

Perfect story

This was SUCH a great story. I loved the characters, even though there were so many for such a short story, I had trouble remembering who is who. The smut was steamy, and there is a twist that I guessed shortly before the reveal, but it was still great. I thought there was going to be another twist, but I was wrong. I wish this was a full length novel. I absolutely loved Fergus, and I found myself smiling constantly as I read this. I wanted to throw my Kindle at one part because of

This is my first novel by Emelia Blair & wow she writes great novels! The type of story where you're pulled into it from the first page to the very last page. Fergus is filling in as bartender where he meets petite & innocent-looking Sarah, wondering why she's in a bar by herself. He becomes her protector when she's asking questions, trying to find her brother. There is suspense, steamy romance, danger & a HEA. I'm looking forward in reading more of her novels.

This strong plot and sizzling hot chemistry has Sarah and Fergus unsure whether they could or should get involved in a relationship. They both are scarred by events that have happened before but as there are threats and ups and down they form a friendship on their journey.

This is a good story that has romance mixed with a little mystery. I love this story. The story has a bad boy who meets a good girl who is trying to solve her own personal mystery. I was surprised by the ending but it was a good ending. The characters were well developed and had a gradual change over the story. I can't wait for the other characters stories.

Fast paced passionate read that keeps interest from beginning to end. I believe is second book in series the way main group of characters are portrayed. This is about bad boy Fergus and quiet school teacher Sarah. Sarah is searching for her brother and trouble follows her. Fergus is there for her. Passion explodes, intrigue,friendship, and love are all there.

A fight breaks out at Fergus's bar and Sarah ends up under one of the fighters. As soon as Fergus sees Sarah he knows she's going to be different than any woman he met. He also knows she's keeping secrets. Will she let him in and help her or will she keep him at arms length? I really am enjoying this series. The main characters suck you in. Can't wait for the next book.

Ferguson and Sarah are an amazing couple. Particularly, Ferguson and his love and caring for Sarah. Add in gang retaliation, kidnapping, assault, murder, and the ultimate deception proves to be an excellent story and very strong characters. Very good read!
