Publisher's Summary

I was hired to protect her, not make her scream my name.

From dodging bullets in Afghanistan to working for the Secret Service, I know danger pretty well.

Or I thought I did. That was before my latest assignment came with a whole new kind of danger.

Her name? Ruby.

She's the gorgeous as hell, opinionated, spitfire daughter of Senator Burgess. Her family's beyond strict, but for a girl who's so innocent, she's anything but sweet.

Wicked green eyes, curves that beg me to touch them, and a smile that makes me think dirty, dirty thoughts.

Her father's a nightmare - a totalitarian who rules his family with an iron fist. He decides what clothes his daughters wear, what books they read, where they can go - hell, who they marry.

Ruby can pretend with them, but she can't pretend with me. I can tell there's more to her than the demure southern belle she has to be in public.

But I'm a professional, hired to be her bodyguard. I know better than to fall for someone I'm supposed to protect, but with every glance, every accidental touch, every word she says to me, I just want her more.

I want to tear away the innocent good girl veneer and make the real Ruby scream my name as she rakes her nails down my back.

It's f*cking dangerous. If we get caught, there will be hell to pay - and it'll be worse for her.

But I don't think I can stay away.

Slow Burn is a full-length completely standalone novel with a happily-ever-after ending and steamy scenes that might require a cold shower.

Hot as sin!

The heroine in this story is the daughter of a ultra-conservative, hyper religious senator who’s up for re-election. Recently divorced and having attracted a stalker, her father hires a bodyguard who is a Secret Service agent on administrative leave. She’s so oppressed by her family, having moved back into her parents home after divorcing her gay husband, and isn’t allowed to have any opinions of her own. Her bodyguard falls for her and they start having a secret affair, while the stalker continues to send letters and follow her. This audiobook was just engaging and the narration was spot on for the characters. Great entertainment!

Slow Burn: A Bodyguard Romance

This was my first Roxie Noir book. It won't be my last one. It wasn't very original but I stilled enjoyed it. the sex scenes were very hot and explicit. So if you don't like scenes like that then it won't be your cup of tea.
