Brenda Storm loves being a doctor and is very good at it. So why is
someone out to kill her? After the delivery of poisoned cupcakes, the
hospital assigns her a bodyguard to protect her at all times. Kyle
Martin is an ex-SEAL who is prepared to give his life, if necessary, to
protect Brenda. What he's unprepared for is the attraction he feels for
her. Brenda doesn't quite know what to think about Kyle. He's strong,
cocky and bit full of himself but she finds herself drawn to him as
well. They both are courageous except when it comes to love. Will they
have an opportunity to explore the possibility of their feelings or will
the killer get his target?
I enjoyed The Doctor's Defender. It
was the type of story that keeps you on edge the whole way through. You
also don't know who it is behind the attempts until the very end, which
is something I really like. The characters were interesting to get to

woman but not unreasonable. The chemistry between them was strong. There
were a couple of questions, as a reader, I felt were unanswered but it
didn't detract from the enjoyment of the story. This is the third
installment in the Protection Specialists Series but I didn't feel lost
having not read the previous books. If you're looking for a quick,
fast-paced, suspenseful read, The Doctor's Defender just might do the

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
