Overview

From the author of the Firefighters of Station Five novels...

Sugarland loves their men in blue, especially Detective Shane Ford. But Shane’s mission to protect and to serve has just gotten personal....


Detective Shane Ford, Sugarland’s favorite cop, has been blindsided by the sudden death of his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, and by becoming the legal guardian of Brad’s son, Drew—a bitter, angry sixteen-year-old with a dangerous secret. Shane is determined to pry the truth from Drew, but he manages only to alienate him—and winds up going head-to-head with Juvenile Officer Daisy Callahan, whose job is to protect the teen’s best interests.

Shane has always been drawn to Daisy’s beauty and strength, but he’s determined not to allow their intense attraction to interfere with his duty ever again. It’s a vow that will prove difficult to keep, as the realities of Shane and Daisy’s blossoming love and their growing bond with the grieving teen propel Shane headlong into danger for the new family he has sworn to protect.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Davis’s new Sugarland Blue series, a spinoff of the Firefighters of Station Five series, features detectives from the Sugarland, Tenn., police department. In the strong series launch, Det. Shane Ford can’t forget his brief affair with fellow officer Daisy Callahan. Though hurt and betrayed by his rejection, Daisy doesn’t hesitate to offer Shane support when his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, is found dead from a suspected drug overdose, and Shane becomes the guardian of Brad’s 16-year-old son, Drew. As Daisy helps Shane and Drew cope with Brad’s death, the attraction between Shane and Daisy ignites, and she must decide whether she can trust Shane not to break her heart again. Daisy’s independence and tough nature cover a heart of gold, and her romantic interludes with Shane reveal hidden depths of his character beneath the surface machismo. Explicit erotic scenes and the mystery behind Brad’s death make this a satisfying, fast-paced read. Agent: Roberta Brown, the Brown Literary Agency. (May)

    Good but not great

    ## The heroine really bugged me in this story. She was so clingy and needy and that ruined the story for me. She was a cop so I just expected her to stand firm, not keep falling into Shane's bed after the way he dumped her. Also, just an FYI, the romance is definitely secondary in this story. Most of the story centered around the teenager and his issues dealing with his dad's death. Interesting but not great.

    This is my first Jo Davis book. It is also my last. I can't believe this person is claiming to be an author. Shane is a stupid wimp and Daisy is more stupid than he is. Let's hope our real police personnel are a lot more intellegent than they are.

    Really?

    I know this is fiction, but really? Man loses best friend, lets have sex. Girl gets concussion, lets have sex. Man almost drowns, lets have sex. Kid is constantly rude and finds trouble, lets have sex. Then when I can barely try to finish this book, the only thing I think about is that this author dedicated this book to her son! That just creeps me out. Dont get me wrong, I like romance and sex in a good book with a semi believable story line, but this is just too much. No more books for me by this author.

    Sworn to Protect is the first book in Jo Davis¿s new Sugarland B

    Sworn to Protect is the first book in Jo Davis’s new Sugarland Blue series. This is my first time reading anything by Jo Davis, and this will not be my last. Sworn to Protect is Contemporary Romance Suspense, and an excellent fun read.

    We meet our hero, Shane Ford, at the Sugarland police station, as all the detectives were sitting around complaining of boredom, and the simple cases they get. Shortly thereafter, Shane and another detective are called onto a murder case.

    During this time, Shane laments his lost relationship with Daisy, a female cop in the Juvenile division. Daisy Callahan is our heroine, and she makes a wonderful caring cop, who works with young & teenage children. She still loves Shane, but was hurt badly when they broke up. Shane was not ready to settle down, and now he regrets his actions, especially every time he sees Daisy, who is very beautiful and sexy, as all the men ogle Daisy, which makes Shane angry.

    When Shane’s best friend dies, he has to take care of his teenage god-son, Drew. It is Daisy, who drops everything to help Shane, who needs all the help he can get trying to be a father figure to Drew. From this point on, this becomes a multi faceted story of a beautiful romance, a teenage boy trying to rebuild his life and get past a terrible tragedy, of friends and family joining together to help those they care about, and a murder mystery that puts a few lives in danger. Shane and Daisy made the perfect couple, and their steamy sex scenes were on fire. During the suspense of tying together a mystery that will tie all the pieces together, it was a wonderful story of true romance, with a great cast of wonderful characters. I really enjoyed this story, as I read this in one day. I plan to continue to read this series.
