This is such a great book, I devoured it in hours. It’s cute how Delilah meets Eric, she’s already really close with his family. He’s a widower with a 5 year old son ( Elias). He gets talked into having her as his nanny ( but has concerns concerning what she’s hiding from). Due to being in the military, they marry for convenience. I actually cried a couple of times, once when Eric messes up and needs her forgiveness and when something happens towards the end. I really loved the ending too. Loved ...more

I just love a book/series that is full of romance, suspense and alpha characters and Protecting Delilah, #2 in the Special Forces: Operation Alpha series, has all that in spades. This author was new to me when I read book 1 of this series (Protecting Bobbi) at which time I fell in love with her writing style. Protecting Delilah is a fast paced novella full of suspense, romance and comradery. The storyline flowed and kept me engrossed to the very end. Plus it was amazing to catch up with the live ...more

Protecting Delilah is a short novella full of romance, suspense, and sweetness. Definitely gave me all the feels! Kat Mizera has a writing style that sucks me in and keeps me captivated, this novella did just that.

Eric is a single father who has drowned himself in work. After losing his wife, relationships were not on the table. Being a Marine has helped hide his pain and grief, but it has also kept him away from his son. He is a big family man, his family holds him together and helps him care

I read this book in one night because I couldn't put it down. This story combines a couple of characters from the Sidewinders world with a couple of characters we met in Protecting Bobbi which was part of the Susan Stoker's Special Forces: Operation Alpha world. When I read Drake (Las Vegas Sidewinders), as well as Protecting Bobbi, I was hoping we'd get books for the rest of Erin's unit. I'm hoping this will continue and we'll get more stories for the rest of her team. This was a fantastic addi ...more

It’s been five years since Eric’s wife passed away while giving birth to his son Elias and he has been finding it more difficult to juggle his career as a marine and being a single father. He is convinced to hire nanny but having a beautiful and caring woman living with him 24/7 and pretending to be married while keeping their relationship strictly professional is becoming more challenging then he thought.

Delilah managed to escape her abusive ex, but she needs to keep a low profile to remain saf

Having read a couple in this world by others this one caught my attention. This is the first time in reading this author though with after this one would do so again. Having military and single parent in this captures you right away but this also has him in this special force group. Must be my thing lately too catching the ones that are running from ex's like this one has. Eric and Delilah take you on this thrill along with the chemistry that fuels it. The unconventional answer has us on our toe ...more

Who is Eric Lopez? Who are Elias, Rosa, Lila, Josephina, Antonia, and company? How does Eric know or meet them? Where do we find him going at the beginning of the book? Whooooo boy! I see trouble coming for Eric from a mile away as I start getting into this book. Why is Delilah in hiding? What happens when Eric runs into Delilah? Who is Derek? Who are Mozart and Wolf? It was great getting to meet Gene briefly! Who is he and why is he there? Enjoy this fun and slightly suspenseful romance!

Eric is a single dad who can be called away on a military mission and Delilah is a nanny in need of a cash only job due to her past.

This novella is part of the Susan Stoker World. This was a good one. I Was drawn to this one because it's written by Kat Mizera, but also be it has a single dad hero. Plus he is a marine which just adds to Eric's yum factor. It's a fast read, but it packs a punch. It has plenty of heart, heat, and suspense that keep flipping the pages. I was instantly hooked by the characters. A marriage of convenience that becomes all too real. Delilah on the run from a dangerous ex. A match making gra

Eric and Delilah may have been “forced” together but their chemistry is phenomenal! This book was a quick read that has romance, adventure, and realistic relationship problems that gives hope to everyday love. I’m not normally a third-person POV reader, but Mizera’s books have a way of pulling me into the story and making me feel like I’m right there with the characters; this HEA was no different.
I definitely recommend this book!

The story of Eric and Delilah is a quick one . Eric, the single, Marine dad and Delilah, the nanny on the run from her ex. They are thrown together immediately because they each offer something that the other needs. It doesn't take long (short story) for them to fall for each other but when her past is front and center can they save each other?

I enjoyed Erica and Delilah as a couple as well as the son and Eric's family they became a complete unit. It also did not hurt that we got to catch up wit

Protecting Delilah is Eric Lopez'z story. You all remember Eric from Drake's story... He is in Erin's unit and that unit is filled with wonderful characters whom all have to recover from their unit's retirement, finding new dreams and hopefully the love of their lives. When Eric sees Delilah his heart reawakens from the loss of his wife, Eric becomes fiercely protective of her as they try to build a life together.

Eric and Delilah

The family next door has had a live-in nanny, but their youngest is starting school, so Delilah is looking for another job.

I love how Delilah is a no nonsense type of girl. Even though she’s on the run she’s taking her future by the horns and putting her life together. It was a ruff start between Lilah and Eric but when Eric kicked he ex’s a** he showed her Marines are no joke. I absolutely love Eric’s grandma Antonia she has an awesome sense of humor and has wisdom for days. Really enjoyed this book.

I love getting a glimpse at the characters from precious Kat Mizera books and having a few of Susan Stoker’s thrown in makes it even better! Eric and Delilah are a non traditional relationship that results in a beautiful and sexy love story!
