About the book (provided by Goddess Fish Promotions)
Anything can happen when you let your guard down . . .

After receiving a violent threat on the heels of her father’s disappearance from the town of Arrowhead Bay, Devon Cole fears for her life—until Vigilance, a local private security agency, steps in to shield her from danger. Although she isn’t usually quick to surrender her freedom, she has no problem stripping her defenses for her new sexy bodyguard . . .

Tortured by the painful memory of lost love, Logan Malik is determined not to fall for a client again. So when he’s tasked with watching over Devon day and night, he’s focused on doing his job. Day is no problem, but as tensions rise at night, nothing can protect them from giving in to unbridled passion . . .
And I thought
A thrilling ride from page 1.  I was pulled in and could not put this book down!  

I loved the story.  I loved the characters all of them.  

Except the bad guys.  And there were a few them!  

Devon and Logan hit if off the moment they meet.  There is sizzle that they can't overlook.  My momma would definitely blush. 
My sassy grandma might be intrigued.  This isn't a book for a young reader.  The bedroom door is open.  But it isn't overally graphic.  

The plot storyline is well written and kept me on the edge of my seat all the way to the end. 

Hide & Seek is book 1 of the Vigilance Series.  I always enjoy getting into a series with book 1.  I can't wait to see more.  As book 1 ends with a happily ever after for Devon and Logan I wonder which other characters will rise to the lead in book 2. 

Sheri the town sheriff or maybe her sister Avery owner of Vigilance the private security firm.  Or will we be introduced to a totally new character.   This reader is patiently waiting! 

Until then Hide & Seek joins the party of the 5 star reviews!

Read an excerpt...
setting the scene.  I was glad to have the opportunity to share this excerpt.  One of my favorite scenes in the book. 
Here's the scene Devon is followed from her fathers home by the bad guys.  They run her off the road and then come back to 
prod her about here fathers whereabouts. 
Logan drives up on the scene . . . 

He wasn’t as much shocked by his physical reaction as by the fact that it happened at all. For a long time now, he’d managed to keep a clamp on his sex drive and take it out only when required, like taking aspirin for a headache.

“You’re a smart woman,” he congratulated her. “I didn’t know if you’d play along with me.”

She inhaled an unsteady breath and blew it out. “I took a chance. You could have been worse than they were.”

“Still, that shows brains and quick thinking. Good for you.” He studied the interior of her car. “Wow. They did a number with that window. Don’t move. There’s chunks and pebbles everywhere.”

She stared at him, studying his face. “You promise you aren’t the second wave? You know, like good cop, bad cop? The bad guys threaten me and you come along and win my confidence by helping me?”

“Nope. Scout’s honor.”

“I, uh, saw that you have a gun.”

“So did those jackasses. I wanted them to see it.” He smiled at her. “But I only use it as part of my job.”

She caught her lower lip in her teeth. “They just came at me out of nowhere and ran me off the road. Then they boxed me in and smashed the window.”

“Later I’ll want all the details. Right now let’s get you out of here.”

“Do you know who they are? Those men?”

“No.” His voice hardened. “But I know other garbage like them.”

She swallowed. “So who are you, anyway?”

“Oh. Sorry.” He winked at her, and the tension in her body visibly eased. “Logan Malik. Savior of women in danger.”

“Devyn Cole.” She dug up a smile. “Woman in danger who needed saving.”
