(Sequel to Logan's Redemption)

"When a female bodyguard is hired to protect a reformed playboy, she finds saving his life is easier than protecting her heart."

When the past and present collide...

Somebody wants rich playboy Franco Callahan dead. When security expert Josephine Fortune arrives on his doorstep thanks to his sister Doriana, Franco finds it hard to refuse. He's had a secret attraction for the diminutive bodyguard since they met at Doriana's wedding five years before.

But attraction is all it is. Combat boot-clad Jo is not the kind of woman Franco usually loves and leaves. Which makes the ruse that Jo is his new live-in girlfriend just that until Jo gets a makeover. Suddenly seduction is on his mind and Franco has all the time in the world to pursue it—and Jo.

Martial artist Jo can take down men twice her size without blinking, but Franco's appeal outmaneuvers her emotional defenses. Jo's tough exterior hides a dark past, and Franco seems determined to learn her every secret. But he has secrets of his own.

The more Franco gets to know Jo, the more he realizes he needs her in his life, and not as his bodyguard. But as the threats to Franco escalate, Jo must use every one of her combat skills to protect him.

Can Jo keep both Franco and her heart safe, or will they pay the ultimate price for love?

Editorial Reviews

NetGalley - G Pangel
Car chases and shootouts as well as hot romance combined makes this a really unique take on the romantic suspense novel. I loved that the bodyguard was a woman and we were treated to something a little different from the usual damsel in distress story line. This book would appeal to romance fans and mystery fans alike.
NetGalley - Julie Whiteley
The pacing was even, the dialogue appropriate and the sex scenes passionate and sensual. The suspense aspect was masterfully plotted and the romance woven intricately and beautifully. The ending was satisfying. I look forward to more from this author.
NetGalley - Becca Prater
This is a great addition to the Redemption series. These two characters were set up well at the end of the first book Logan’s Redemption. I couldn’t wait for this book.
NetGalley - Mau Aqua
Suspenseful story, good plot, great characters and wonderful ending. I really enjoyed this book.

    ¿Franco¿s Fortune¿ by Cara Marsi is a wonderful story about two

    ‘Franco’s Fortune’ by Cara Marsi is a wonderful story about two very complex people who show the world one face while hiding who they truly are, even from themselves.
    Both of these characters were introduced in ‘Logan’s Redemption’. Franco Callahan, the arrogant playboy brother of Dorian and Josephine ‘Jo’ Fortune, security expert employed by Logan.
    Jo is given no choice but to act as Franco’s bodyguard after a series of threatening incidents almost kills him. Together, they must figure out where the threats are coming from and put a stop to them. They also have to deal with their ever-increasing attraction to each other. 
    I admit that I took a dislike to Franco while reading ‘Logan’s Redemption’, and I figured it might take me at least a few chapters warm up to him. I was right, but his character was developed in such a way that I liked him even when I wanted to smack him for being such a prick. I also admit that I was almost a little disappointed that Jo had such a hard time resisting her attraction to Franco (yes, I wanted him to suffer a little more!) but it turned out fine in the very end.
    I truly enjoy Ms. Marsi’s writing style. Her characters are always very well developed, and this book was no exception. Her plots are always clever and intriguing, holding my attention until the end. 
    I highly recommend this book to readers of all the various romance genres available. Happy Reading!

     A kick-ass heroine. A scrumptious hero. What more could a roman

     A kick-ass heroine. A scrumptious hero. What more could a romance reader want? I loved Franco's Fortune. I also loved seeing the characters from Logan's Redemption.

    When a threat on Franco's life throws them together, sparks--all kinds of sparks--start to fly between Jo and Franco. Jo is strong, yet Franco can tell she's vulnerable. Jo sees a different side of Franco while protecting him, a side he hides from the world and a side she finds endearing.

    The book is filled with action and will tug at your heartstrings. FIVE STARS!
