Being ripped from her mundane life by a swarm of police officers is not what Rae Chapin expected when she woke up this morning. Accused of a series of murders she didn’t commit, Rae doesn’t have anyone to rely on. Except him. Alec Bronson, the popular boy who broke her heart all those years ago – now a smoking hot man – is her only hope of proving her innocence and finding the person eager to kill everyone she loves.

It’s been two decades since Texas Ranger Alec Bronson last saw Rae. He shouldn’t get involved, but with one look at his childhood friend behind the steel bars and her proclamations of innocence, he’s convinced to take the case. The battle to keep his renewed feelings for the curvaceous woman hidden becomes impossible when the true killer emerges once again, targeting the only woman he’s ever loved.

Life-altering secrets are revealed as the evidence mounts, pointing toward the killer who’s determined to make Rae pay for her past. When confronted with the truth, Rae is forced to make a decision.

His life or hers.

If you love a little darkness, murder, and possessive alpha heroes with the need for control mixed into your suspense then this series is for you. Please note this book is for mature readers due to detailed sexual content, foul language, discussion of abuse, and a killer who will stop at nothing.

Mine to Guard is the third book in the Protection series and tells the story of Rae and Alec! Although this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone.

I really loved the first two books in the Protection series, so I was really excited to start reading my ARC of Mine to Guard. When I started reading Rae and Alec’s story, I was so angry at the beginning. I really hate men who criticise women’s bodies. Rae is so beautiful and she needs to be treated like a goddess!!! But besides that, I loved Rae and Alec’s story and I really enjoyed reading Mine to Guard!

Rae’s story was so interesting and I just had to know who did all those murders. I liked Rae’s personality and I’m so happy that she ‘found’ Alec again. I also really liked getting to know Alec, he’s so perfect for Rae. I’m a sucker for second chance Romance reads so it was no surprise that I really liked reading Rae and Alec’s love story.

Mine to Guard was such a good Romantic Suspense book and I really loved getting to know Rae and Alec! I was also really surprised with the ending of the book. Kennedy L. Mitchell did yet again an amazing job with this book. The Protection series is such a good Romance series and I highly recommend it! I’m so excited for Kennedy L. Mitchell’s next book!
