RITA AWARD FINALIST • In this steamy novel of seduction and international intrigue, two brave men are stripped of their defenses—and exposed to dangers and desires that simmer below the surface.
As an agent with the CIA’s special activities division, Seth Lang lives for risk—and yet he’s stuck playing bodyguard to the U.S. consul general in Munich. Although Seth’s last assignment nearly killed him, babysitting some desk jockey in a suit sounds way too easy. But when he lays eyes on the new top man, tactical expert Rick Fine, Seth’s thrilled to see just how hard this job is going to get. Mr. Tall, Dark, and Quiet has a body worth guarding—and he requires hands-on attention day and night.
Dispatched to a German consulate to expose the murder of his predecessor, Rick finds himself in an extremely vulnerable position. He needs a man like Seth—in so many ways. This mission will inevitably plunge them both into jeopardy, but each new threat only brings them closer. Rick just hopes that he can keep his deepest, darkest secret hidden—or else risk imperiling a relationship they’re both fighting for their lives to protect.

Praise for Guarding Mr. Fine
“[Guarding Mr. Fine] finds two men struggling with their attraction to one another, and the over-protective alpha-ness of being in charge. The premise is entertaining and spicy; the characters are sexy and colorful; the romance is intoxicating and intense. Guarding Mr. Fine is an intimate story of passion and intrigue.”—The Reading Cafe
“This was an edge-of-your-seat . . . thriller that had me reading faster and faster just so I could see if what I was thinking was right. Through it all, trust was gained, perfection was debunked, the mystery was dealt with and love saved the day. I do not hesitate in recommending this book. It was wild, juicy, detail orientated and kept me invested.”—Alpha Book Club
“[Guarding Mr. Fine is] action-packed, high energy, [with] sparking physical chemistry and smoking hot sex scenes. And though the mystery in this one is good, the pure attraction and companionable teamwork these two men undergo to solve it are what really makes it work.”—Hearts on Fire Reviews
“Tightly plotted and very exciting, the pace is very brisk, the writing suits Rick and Seth to a tee. . . . [They have] combustible chemistry.”—Fresh Fiction

This is book # 3 in the Tough Love series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. The series is actually fast paced and amazing. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading these in order.
Rick and Seth have worked together before. Only one of them knows it. Now they are in Germany trying to keep a murderer from striking again.
Seth tries hard to never mix business with pleasure. Guarding a sexy man can be done with keeping his hands to himself. Right?
This was a great installment to the series. Has a very good pace and the characters are very real. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about these two.

Loved, loved, loved!! This is a super sexy M/M romance that once I started reading I couldn't put down. It's filled with action, suspense, and some seriously sexy moments between Seth and Rick. Rick is in Germany to look into the sudden death of the previous Consulate, Seth is there to protect Rick. An assignment he's not originally too thrilled with but once he sees who exactly he's babysitting Seth is all in! Both these characters are swoon-worthy and the excitement of the story makes this a book you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.
This is my first book by HelenKay Dimon and I must say I am quite impressed. The plot is spectacular, full of intrigue, mystery, and espionage, and the characters are complex, well developed and real. They really draw you right into the story and you just can't help but become invested in their lives. This book hooked me from the start and kept me riveted to the very last page. The pace is steady and never boring. Overall, I found the book to be provocative and gripping and romantic and absorbing and sexy and completely compelling. If you love romantic thrillers, this is the book for you!
