This one is tricky for me to rate, so I'm giving it 3.5, but sticking to 3 stars.

It's a good story, the plot has really great twists and the setting is used well, with just enough description, likewise the secondary characters.

I have two main problems with it though. First, the heroine really annoys me. I hate it when authors use "citygirl" as a euphemism for flaming idiot. I'm sorry, I live in a city, my friends live in a city and yet, we don't spend our lives in white capris or wear 3 inch M
She saw a killer's face, but can't remember it, so a cop, before she might end up dead, whisks her off in the middle of Wyoming, to the only man who can protect her.

But who will protect the small-town Chief of Police from the bombshell with a serial on her heels?

Yes! Another winner by (one of my favorite authors) Jenna Ryan. I absolutely loved it from beginning to end, the pacing was spot-on, the characters amazing, the tension wonderful, the attraction between Sera and Logan palpable, the suspe

I have to say that I’m fairly disappointed in this story. The reason is that I think it had great potential, but didn’t deliver in the end.

The love story was typical and you can’t help but fall in love with a rough and tumble cowboy that also is trying to protect the heroine. However, his backstory was lost amid the other unnecessary drama going on in the story so it was hard to empathize with his reasons for leaving the “big city.” I would have loved to have seen more of his character developm

Confession: I still read a lot of series romance. My favorite lines are Silhouette Romantic Suspense, Harlequin Intrigue, and Silhouette Desire. I love these books. They are my secret vice. While I can see the umm cheesiest sometimes, I still devour them.

I couldn't devour SHADOW PROTECTOR. Usually I can read a series romance in about a day and a half, it took me almost two weeks to read SHADOW PROTECTOR. I just couldn't get into it.

Usually when I read a series romance I can see that even if it w

This wasn't horrible and in the end I really enjoy the story, but a lot of it exasperated me to no end. First off, I don't care how out of the way, podunk-y type of town this is, there is no excuse for people who are going around threatening people by knife and alluding to rape to only be detained for a night in jail. Logan even said something along the lines of "this happens all the time."

This book starts off as a pretty good serial killer thriller involving a doctor who manages to survive an attack by the mysterious Blindfold Killer. She is sent to Wyoming for her own safety - and from there things just started to fall apart. The writing felt a bit choppy and the book jumped around too much for me to stay interested so DNF for me

Shadow Protector

Sera and Logan seemed destined to be together. This was a very good novel. Several good cops died trying to keep Sera alive.
