A great start to a new series. The Marino family only knows how to serve and protect in their occupations. This is the story of Nick, of the secret service, who has been asked to protect the president's sister, Isabelle. Isabelle is a widow and young mother of twins. Nick and Isabelle can not deny the chemistry between them but Nick does not want to risk his career.
Plenty of family love with the Marino clan. Loved the developing relationship of Nick and Isabelle, even though Nick tried to fight it off. Great suspense with who was threatening Isabelle and keeping her and boys safe.
