His to Protect

Book 2, Fireside - A Fireside Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A warm home for broken hearts, the Fireside Grill serves up hope and healing in equal measure. Stacey Lynn’s sensual, deeply emotional series heats up as a jaded restaurateur falls hard for a woman who’s hiding from a damaged past.

Declan James lost his last ounce of trust the day his wife walked out the door, leaving him to save the restaurant they built together. Throwing himself into his work, Declan swears off women—or at least, women who expect him to stick around in the morning. But when he discovers a skittish beauty scrounging through the Fireside’s trash to feed her dog, Declan offers her a job and a place to rest her head. There’s just something about her that awakens his protective side. And soon, not even that mangy mutt can stop Declan from caring for her.

After one too many trips to the ER, Trina Wilson finally gathered the courage to leave her husband, taking only her car and hyperactive boxer. Unfortunately, life on the run proves harder than she anticipated—until Declan takes a leap of faith on her. But even as Trina starts to see beyond his gruff exterior, she can’t relax, even for a moment. Not with her husband still tracking her down. What Trina doesn’t know is that in Declan, she has a powerful ally—and, if she would only follow her heart, a devoted lover.

From Publishers Weekly

May 23, 2016 – The second in the Fireside series (after His to Love) pulls in characters from the first book and ends with a cliff-hanger that sets up the love story of the next, in the process creating a strong sense of the Detroit neighborhood community that supports the characters. Declan Moore, the owner of the Fireside Grill, is instantly drawn to protect the woman he finds feeding her dog out of his restaurant's dumpster. Trina Wilson, running from her powerful and abusive husband, is reluctant to trust any man, but she can't resist the offer of a hot meal and a bed to sleep in. Trina's husband is still looking for her, though, and as Declan and Trina get closer, Trina gets more anxious about staying in Detroit, all too close to the home she fled in Kentucky. The alternating points of view create windows into the characters' motivations, and the reader will be gripped by Trina's fear of her husband and Declan's compassion and anger on her behalf. The final showdown feels a bit contrived, but the personalities and prose shine through the formula.

Customer Reviews

4.5 Stars!

Stacey Lynn did a great job of writing about an abused woman learning to let her walls down while the big overprotective guy does everything he can to show her not all men are like her abusive husband. Declan was very protective and even possessive with Trina but not in a way that would scare off an abuse victim. Everything about Declan draws you in. The way he treats Trina yet still carry his own hurt and bitterness from a failed marriage just makes you want to swoon and be the one to show him love. Trina, despite the abuse she suffered is very strong and caring and showed Declan that not all women are like his ex-wife. They were the perfect fit for each other. I enjoyed the side characters and look forward to reading Tyson's, Aiden's and David's story.

His To Protect

His to Protect by Stacey Lynn is the second book in the Fireside series. This is the story of Declan and Trina who are two broken souls who find each other and together make each other whole. This is a beautifully written love story that grips your heart and takes you on an emotional journey. I highly recommend this book!

4.5 stars

"His to Protect" is the second book in the "Fireside" series by Stacey Lynn. Both books are amazing! "His to Love", is the first book in the series. His to Protect can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading His to Love!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved how Declan was protective and caring in spite of his recent divorce. He felt a draw to Trina early on and always seemed to put her first. He knew she was fragile and was kind, caring and compassionate to her.
