Book Summary:

He’s more than her protector…

Being a cop in a small Georgia town is a pretty peaceful job, and one that Boone Braddock takes pride in. Babysitting the governor’s daughter, however, isn’t Boone’s idea of police duty. Especially when it’s Susannah Rhodes, who has an impulsive streak a mile wide.

Boone was Susannah’s crush in high school. He’s still unmistakably handsome. Worse yet, it’s impossible to keep anything from him—like the real reason she’s returned home. And it’s more impossible still to keep her distance. Because a long time ago, the two had shared something special. Something that was never finished…


Susannah has always been a wild card for the governor as she was quite a trouble maker growing up. Now that she’s matured and found her purpose in life she has returned home to share her passion with others. Much to her distaste her father insists on 24 hour protection and that protection comes in the form of her once childhood crush Boone Braddock.  Boone ends up being the key to getting what she is after but unbeknownst to her he has not forgotten the kiss they shared long ago.

Susannah’s love for organic farming will be something many will relate to but might be a turn off for others. We see the feisty side of her personality right from the start when she is trying to save a bunch of chickens who are headed to the slaughter house.

This book had a great ending that left me happy and smiling. Since this is a Harlequin Heartwarming title it is of course squeaky clean. Perfect for those who enjoy clean romance.
