Overview

Presidential candidate Miguel Ramirez was under attack, fighting for the future of his people—and his life. He needed a bodyguard, but J.J. Blair wasn't the tough-as-nails muscleman he'd been expecting. With a campaign to win and only a petite, ravenhaired "fiancée" to protect him, Miguel knew he'd have to rely on his instincts to survive. Only J.J. wasn't used to following orders. She was irritating, infuriating...and intoxicatingly beautiful. And although he was drawn to her, body and soul, Miguel couldn't afford to be distracted. Because having an undercover lover could lead not only to passion—but peril.

Meet the Author

A born romantic, Beverly fell in love with The Beauty and the Beast epic at an early age, when her grandfather bought her an illustrated copy of the famous fairy tale. Even before she learned to read and write, Beverly's vivid imagination created magical words and fabulous characters inside her mind.

Movies fascinated Beverly, and by the time she was seven she was rewriting the movies she saw on television and at the local theater to give them all happy endings. By the age of nine she'd penned her first novel. She wrote short stories, TV scripts, poetry, and novels throughout high school and into college.

After her marriage to the ";love of her life"; and the births of her two children, Beverly continued to be a voracious reader and a devoted moviegoer, but she put her writing aspirations on hold until her children were teenagers. In her mid-30s, she returned to her former passion—writing—as a hobby, but before 40, she decided that she wanted to make writing a full-time career.

Beverly believes she has had it all, just not all at the same time. She devoted herself to her husband and children and considers herself one of the many selfless ";supermoms"; who put their family's needs first. At every age of their lives, from infancy to adulthood, Beverly's children have been a true joy to her.

And when Beverly rediscovered an old dream— of becoming a published writer—no one was more supportive of her aspirations than her family. Her children are her greatest cheerleaders and her husband is her biggest supporter. After writing over 40 books and receiving numerous awards and nominations, as well as having books on the USA Today list and consistently on the Waldenbooks bestseller list, Beverly's career is indeed a dream come true.

Having a fantastic family and fabulous friends, as well as making a living doing the one thing she has loved doing since childhood, Beverly considers herself truly blessed.

J.J. was a petite, fragile-appearing woman who had incredible skills as a bodyguard. I liked the fact that Miguel, while being on the macho side listened to J.J.'s opinions. He didn't however follow them. J.J. did not act his bodyguard but was more cover for him except he was the one always protecting her. She became somewhat wimpy. I liked the characters and the plot idea was great, it just wasn't what the book ended up being about.
