THE PRIVATE BODYGUARD is a quick yet enjoyable romantic suspense from Harlequin Silhouette with a theme that I really like; that of reunited lovers. This story grabbed me right away with its mystery, suspense and deception before unfortunately petering out into just an okay read that I probably won’t remember. I did however enjoy both the hero and the heroine; Gage is delightful in his protectiveness (tight abs) and continued love for Meredith. Who in turn tries not to fall for Gage while still managing to kick some butt protecting herself and those she cares about. This is a couple that while still deeply in love can see no possible future together and with one of them supposedly dead it was sure fun watching them find their way.

Dr Meredith Boren has come to her lake house to box up her dead fiancé’s belongings, it’s been eighteen months after all and its time she moved on with her life. You can only imagine her surprise at waking in the middle of the night to find said fiancé wounded and bleeding but still very much alive in her kitchen.

Gage Parrish is a dead man at least he has been for the past eighteen months while undercover investigating an arson ring. In order to keep Meredith safe he’s had to fake his own death and in putting his job before his relationship he may have just lost her forever. Now with the trial in a week’s time and Gage set to testify the vengeful arsonist is having him hunted down and despite the fact that Meredith wasn’t supposed to be at the cabin Gage has a bullet hole in his shoulder and he’s going to need her help to make it to the trial alive. Oh yes things are going to get tricky, this couple is going to be on the run for the next week, taking lots of baths (why? I don’t know) and stuck together in very tight quarters while Gage tries to deny his feelings and Meredith learns to trust a dead man. Cheers!
