Love on the Run
#5, Pine Harbour
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A person hired to escort and protect another person. Escort and protect. Definitely no flirting, kissing, or testing the bounds of third base.
Dean Foster has nearly two decades experience being calm, cool, and collected. His first gig in his new private security contractor role should be more of the same, but Nashville superstar Liana Hansen blows all that out of the water in one breathy hello.
Liana isn’t sure how she feels about the straight-laced cop shadowing her everywhere she goes, but there’s no denying the chemistry between them. Too bad he insists on keeping his clothes on. And then there’s the pesky matter of feelings. Neither of them likes those.
With only a dozen stops left on the tour, one of them is going to have to bend. Or the other is going to wind up breaking something.
Book 5 in the Pine Harbour series: Dean Foster (ex-cop, army reservist, newly minted bodyguard) meets his match in Liana Hansen (Nashville superstar, woman of many secrets, supremely reluctant protectee).
Dean and Liana's relationship burns up the pages
I fell in love with hero Dean Foster in the very first pages of Love on the Run. Zoe York is known for writing hero-centric, sexy stories and this one does not disappoint. Dean is the perfect temperament for hot-mess musician Liana. He joins her as his bodyguard but its quickly apparent he's so much more: part therapist, part bodyguard, 100% lover. Their relationship burns up the pages from the minute their eyes meet and by the time they get together, their relationship is explosive. Stolen moments in concert venues and shadowy corners heighten the intensity until they are able to find a moment alone.
Dean's a protector in all aspects of his life, and that's why he's perfect for Liana. He quickly figures out how to read her moods and meet her needs, whether its for a protector, friend, or lover. I just love him.
The author realistically depicts the life of a musician, at least as best as I would imagine, not being one myself, but the frenetic pace of life on the road comes through the words on the page. The interpersonal dynamic of Liana and her band and their differing personalities creates humorous and tense situations. But in the end, the intensity of Dean and Liana's relationship burns up the pages of Love on the Run.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
So happy to return to Pine Harbour! This is the fifth book in the series but each book reads as a standalone. Dean Foster is a former cop who is now working private security. His first job is to watch over Nashville superstar Liana Hansen. These two couldn't be more different but the spark between them is bright and fierce. He lives his life in the shadows making sure everyone he loves is safe. She lives her life in the light with tons of adoring fans and people pulling her in all directions. Together they can perhaps find the perfect balance for both of them to have it all. This story is wonderfully written and I adored these characters. This is one I highly recommend.
Sexy, unexpected, and empowering!!!

Sexy, unexpected, and empowering. When your world is caving in it's great to know you have a safe place to run to even if you are famous and well known. Liana Hansen put that to the test and her friend Hope proved that friendship runs deep even if she is falling apart and wont talk about why. Hope knows Liana cannot hide much longer but she wants her protected. She hires her a bodyguard since she doesn't know what the issue is. Will Liana accept the offer of help from Hope? Can the bodyguard keep her safe? Why did Liana run in the first place?
