The Protector starts out with Jazz, a SEAL, getting arrested when he tries to help a young girl who has been forced into prostitution in Asia. He pays for the girl for two days so he can get her away from the other men but this happens during an Interpol sting set up by GEM operator Vivian Verreau. The sting was targeting servicemen who frequent brothels. It looks like Jazz is paying for her services but he is really just buying her some time away from that life. Jazz is cleared of the charges by his commanding officer but he and his team of SEALs are told to join forces with Vivi's team to take down an international arms dealer. The dealer is working on partnering with the local Triad gang. In general I was very uncomfortable reading about the female teenagers in third world countries being treated so badly. I also found the sex scenes in the first part of the book very disturbing. I liked the blurb and thought it would be entertaining. It really isn't entertaining but a very difficult read.

My first Gennita Low novel, and I was not disappointed. Loved everything about this book - the humour at times, the story, the romance, and especially her well-developed characters. Can't wait to read the rest of her books!

Gennita Low has done it again with her third book The Protector. Jazz is an extremely hot cajun who is a SEAL working on a mission in Vietnam. Vivi is a GEM who is also working on a mission there herself. The story involves prostitution, and child prostitution and how Vivi who once escaped such a fate for herself wants to help these girls. Vivi a mix of Asian/Caucasian does not like men in uniform especially the kind that Jazz wears, because she remembers the American soldiers who comes in and out using the girls as prostitutes whether they were old enough or not. However, Jazz with his sexy attitude comes in and breaks down all her defenses. There is an interesting mystery where Vivi is looking for her childhood friend she left behind when she made her escape from a life darkness and depravity. Is her friend still alive? All these years Vivi has survivor guilt, and she cannot forgive herself until she finds out what happened to her friend. Three out of three for Gennita Low. That is amazing for an author to be able to write three incredible books in a row. What I think this author does so well is that she match make such wonderful heros and heroines. They are so well matched that you believe that they will have a wonderful marriage and live together for the rest of their lives. What I always like about is that neither the heros or heroines ever protest too much about not wanting to be with each other. You do not have to wait for the last few pages for the characters to finally realize that they love each other. Instead what you see is a progression of how the characters start to feel the attraction and eventually it moves to love. And it is so wonderfully done that you just want to keep on reading till the end. This book definitely gets a 5 for the story itself, and the writing. But if I could give another 5 it would be for the intense sexual tension, sexy hero and his 'band of brothers' (whose stories I'm still waiting for), beautiful and likeable heroines, and secondary characters like Stephen whom I just can't get enough of. This is a must read, and there is no doubt in my mind now that Gennita Low will continue to produce such quality romance. This truly is romance at its best and I am more then happy to announce that I am a romance reader and proud of it.

Ms. Low has set high standards with her previous books and I'm happy to report that she lives up to them and more! This book is action packed with a strong hero and heroine and a story that sizzles. Not only that but this is also a book that tugs on the heartstrings. There were moments where I had tears in my eyes. This book will touch you in all the right places.

Gennita Low delivers the goods in the goods in her newest story The Protector. Navy Seal Zola ¿Jazz¿ Zeringue and his team are having some down time after their latest mission. He tries to stop the selling of an under age girl for sex but gets caught in the sting by Interpol. Gem Agent Vivi Verreau releases Jazz after the facts come to light and he is innocent. Vivi intrigues jazz, even more so when she is the leading op on their next mission. Having a woman as a lead is a new twist on things for Jazz and his team. But Vivi proves she is the right person for the job. The interactions between the guys are priceless, funny and serious at times. It¿s fascinating to listen to the male mind at work. Jazz and Vivi are thrown together when something unexpected happens in the trap they set to stop the trafficking of these young girls. Their lives depend on trusting each other and this makes their passion more explosive. Watching Jazz break down Vivi walls one kiss at a time will touch your heart. Their chemistry is sensational. Gennita Low writes and action packed, emotional, all out sexy book. I could not put this book down once I started. Looking forward to the next book, The Hunter¿

Trying to save a woman child from at least a night or two of depravity, Jazz gets arrested, only to be saved by Vivi Verreau, a woman with more than one face and many secrets, ones Jazz is determined to learn. This is how he and his men find themselves recruited into Vivi's covert operation to stop a drug cartel in Asia and how Jazz finds himself falling in love with a lady as dangerous as he is. .............................................................. * *** Prepare to board a roller coaster when you start this book. Action and adventure pause only long enough to raise your blood pressure in other ways. Ms. Low is rapidly proving herself a force to be reckoned with in romantic suspense. ****

Gennita Low turns from CIA/espionage stuff to SEAL action adventure in her new book, The Protector. .... The story line is different, though, from the usual SEAL plots. This one is set in Southeast Asia, with a half-Asian heroine. .... Cajun-yummy Navy SEAL Jazz Zeringue finds himself in hot water when he tries to rescue a young girl from prostituting herself. Mistaken by Interpol as someone trying to take advantage of a child, he's taken into custody. .... Vivi Verreau, the Interpol liaison, believes Jazz to be innocent and sets him free. Things get interesting when Jazz realizes that Vivi isn't just working for Interpol, but is also a GEM operative who will be working closely with his team. .... It's fun to see the testosterone fly when eight SEALs are told they have to follow a woman's orders! Gennita Low's male dialogue seems very true to life and at times very amusing. .... I really enjoyed the 'guy' camaraderie in her story and it's fun to be reunited with Hawk (yum-yum), Cucumber, Dirk and Mink again, as well as several other members of the SEAL team. .... If you've enjoyed Ms. Low's other books, I guarantee you won't be disappointed with this one.

This book is awesome!! Another winner from Ms. Low who just keeps getting better and better. .... Jazz Zeringue, Navy SEAL, is put behind bars for an act of kindness. A mysterious stranger, Vivi Verreau, comes to his rescue. Sparks fly from them moment these two meet. .... Jazz wants to know more about the woman behind the Interpol liaison but he first has to gain Vivi's trust and Vivi has to see the man beyond the warrior in the uniform. .... This book is a roller coaster ride. I just can't praise it enough. Anyone who likes romantic suspense with a Navy SEAL hero and a sympathetic heroine will love it, too! .... I really anxious to read her next book - it will be Hawk's story. We've seen Hawk in at least two of her books (Into Danger and The Protector) and I can tell his story is going to be AWESOME!!

In Southeast Asia, Covert Ops SEAL Zola ¿Jazz¿ Zeringue intercedes when a pimp and a GI barter over an underage girl by paying cash for her. When the elderly grandmamson tries to stop him from following the child into the back room, he ignores her to make sure the child is safe. Interpol arrests Jazz for having sex with a minor........................... Grandmamson is actually Vivienne ¿Vivi¿ Verreau working undercover g for GEM, but currently serving as the liaison between the United Third World of Women and the UN. Vivi interviews Jazz, who says he just wanted to protect Rose, who affirms his testimony. Vivi frees him..................... Jazz is attracted to Vivi, but she hates soldiers who kill or rape and plunder. Vivi and GEM lead Jazz and his squad on a mission to stop European weapons dealer Dilaver peddling his toys to the Triad brothers, dealers in drugs and girl prostitution. They are to allow GEM to extract the girls and steal the weapons, but allow Dilaver to escape thinking the Triad attacked him. This is the first step in a widening plot to catch bigger fish........................ This is a strong suspense thriller that excitingly ties together the fight against international drug, weapons, and underage girl trafficking into a fine tale starring two likable strong lead protagonists. The locale and the secondary cast add authenticity to the fine story line. Readers will shake their heads when the lead couple stops while on the lam to make love. Although the cleverly devised final confrontation is more a set up to Hawk¿s future tale than a closing climax, romantic suspense readers will gain high levels of pleasure from THE PROTECTOR.................
