She would trust him with her life. But can either of them trust their hearts?
Rory Sutton Whitfield isn’t a princess, even though her wealthy family insists on treating her like one. Fresh from her travels and finally achieving the independence she craves, the last thing she wants is to become swept up in family problems. But her half-brother has disappeared and her grandfather insists on hiring a bodyguard for her. Rory won’t be controlled by anyone, especially not a taciturn detective like Vince Maroney, a man of few words who nonetheless arouses disturbing emotions.
Vince Maroney has learned his lesson about playing the hero; he stepped up once and it cost him everything. But when he saves the granddaughter of one of Sydney’s wealthiest men, he finds himself embroiled in events beyond his control. Rory is beautiful, smart, independent. But her family is all secrets and lies, money papered over injustices. Rory makes him feel things he thought long dead, but the pains of the past create distance, and she comes from a completely different world. How can one of Sydney’s pampered princesses ever find common ground with her reluctant bodyguard?
This is the second book I have read by Lizzy Chandler. I have found neither to be disappointing. This story flowed smoothly to keep me hooked on wanting to find out what exactly happened, even though I did suspect the culprit once the theme & characters were drawn together. The romantic aspect of the story was sincere & genuine. All in all, a very enjoyable read & I look forward to further suspense/romantic novels from Lizzy.
