Description

She’s always been an outsider, but it’s a dangerous time to be alone and he may be her only hope.

Being raised in the foster system has made Kinley Taylor feel like a lifelong outcast, but it’s witnessing a young girl’s last few minutes on Earth that proves just how alone she truly is. Kinley has no one to turn to, no family, no friends…except perhaps the gorgeous Delta Force soldier she met months ago. The one she ignored when he’d tried to keep in touch, convinced he couldn’t really be interested in a relationship.

When Kinley ghosts him not once, but twice, Gage “Lefty” Haskins takes the hint. Clearly the pretty personal assistant didn’t feel the same connection he did. Or so he assumes…until she shows up in Texas, on the run for her life after already surviving an assassination attempt. Lefty couldn’t turn her away even if he wanted to—and he doesn’t. The longer he knows her, the greater the connection he feels. He just has to keep Kinley alive long enough to convince her she’s The One.

Easier said than done, when the man who wants her dead has friends in high places…and a very patient hitman on retainer.

** Shielding Kinley is the 2nd book in the Delta Team Two Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

    Purchased and reread nearly every book from this author; this one is not up to her usual standard. Weak plotting and inconsistent characterization. Uber-competent alpha soldier who KNOWS the hitman is out there and does nothing for weeks on end? Super patient hitman choosing a public place with cameras and witnesses galore to make his move? Nonsense.
  • AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

    I never do book reviews. However after starting this book this afternoon and literally not putting it down. I have to. It’s phenomenal. The characters, the twists, the romance. One of the best romantic suspense books I’ve read (and I’ve read plenty). I started book one yesterday evening. Now I’m starting book 3 at 11pm and I have work tomorrow at 7. Pray for me. Do not pass this series up.

    By far, one of the best books by this author I’ve read. This was great cover to cover and had you intrigued and page turning so fast, you thought you learned speed reading. Carefully crafting the characters strength and love for each other is a skill that few others of this genre possess. I hope all her books take me to another place that is so sweet to read the whole collection. Love the connection between the teams and the women who support them and each other. Just Wow!

    I finished this book in just a couple days. My only complaint is the name use for the male main character. Sometimes he’s Gage; sometimes he’s Lefty. It would make sense if he was referred to as Lefty in his team/work setting then Gage in everyday life. However, there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to why the author alternates between the names.

    I really enjoyed reading this. The connection of the men, how they are family. The sadness of Kinley due to her history . One I could not put down till done. TY

    Loved the book but I don’t like God’s name being used in vane even if it was only one time books and movies would be so much more entertaining with out foul language and cursing against God

    This story gave me all the feels of a great romantic suspense. It has intrigue, excitement, heart pounding suspense and a beautiful developing relationship between Kinley and Gage “Lefty” Haskins. My heart went out to Kinley. When she felt so invisible and lonely because of all that life had shown her I could feel that also. But when Gage came along and showed her friendship and loyalty and love it was beautiful. On the other hand the suspense kept me on edge of your seat and I couldn’t put it down. LOVED IT!!!
  • Soooo good!!
