Protecting His Kidnapped Family by Leslie North
Protecting His Kidnapped Family Series: Southern Soldiers of Fortune #2
Genres: Romantic Suspense, Military Romance

Clint Buckman, former Navy SEAL and member of the elite Southern Soldiers of Fortune, had one job: keep Tara Crumb safe. But when shots ring out at an environmental rally where Tara is speaking—and a bullet grazes her—Clint knows he’s failed. Guilt-ridden, Clint vows to make things right, and takes on a full-time post as Tara’s bodyguard. It isn’t long before he and his six-year-old daughter end up living in Tara’s house where he can watch over her. However, Tara’s smoldering looks are just too tempting to ignore, and it isn’t long before Clint’s resolve to keep things professional crumbles. Yet as threats to Tara increase, Clint knows all his focus has to be on his mission, not on the woman who has him thinking about how nice forming a family might be…

Tara has always been driven by her cause to protect the earth and nothing has ever distracted her from that mission—not even bullets flying at her. Not until burly, sexy, Clint came into her life. How else should a healthy woman react to a half-naked former SEAL doing yoga in her living room? Having a gorgeous man and precocious six-year-old fledgling environmentalist living with her is knocking Tara off her game. She doesn’t have time for all these warm, fuzzy feelings reluctantly filling her heart. Her only focus should be on passing a bill that will protect the local environment, not on the man who makes her blood run hot and her heart go into overdrive. She can’t help wondering if this attraction is a distraction from her cause, or a clear path to happiness?

The real peril, though, is Tara’s mysterious enemy, who could tear them apart before she can discover if what they have is forever…

As a huge fan of Leslie North I am always thrilled to get a new book of hers in my hands. I think was by far one of my favorite books of hers. As always the writing is captivating and will draw you right in.

Poor Serena is being held for ransom that no one seems to be paying. On top of that she is worried that her daughter will be left an orphan. Just when she plans to make her own escape she gets rescued by Noah who happens to also be her daughter’s father. The same man she had a one night stand with who doesn’t know he’s a father.

Of course, Noah isn’t ready to be a father, yet he is so gentle with his daughter. Serena is ready for more but is Noah? His life is perfect the way it is and he thrives on the danger of his job.

This book was so perfect! It had everything I love in a book; danger, a surprise baby, and plenty of steam. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. I’m addicted now!
