A passion sparked by danger. A secret that could tear them apart.
Honorée Cherbourg knows no good deed goes unpunished. When she saves a young boy’s life in Paris, she nearly loses her own – and gets tossed into protective custody while police track the would-be killer. Her protector is the boy’s father, policeman Adrien Gerard. As if facing a killer weren’t bad enough, now she’s cooped up with the sexiest man she’s ever met.
Adrien Gerard knows good things come to those who wait. In this case, the chance to arrest the man who tried to kidnap his son, Collin. But the investigation is about to be derailed by his uncontrollable attraction to Honorée, the only person who can identify the killer.
Honorée isn’t used to putting down roots. But she can’t deny her unexpected bond with Collin, and her unbridled attraction to Adrien. When the kidnapper surfaces again, revealing a connection that strikes at the heart of the Gerard family, she’s forced to make a choice between her freedom and the new family she never knew she wanted.
Can Honorée and Adrien keep Collin safe and catch a kidnapper…or will their forbidden passion destroy everything the Gerard family holds dear?
Combining romance, mystery, and suspense, The Cherbourg Bodyguard is the story of a woman who found the life she didn’t know she wanted…if she can survive long enough to live it.

Meet the Characters
He turned back to the woman lying on the ground. Her head had fallen sideways when she lost consciousness, framed by a tumble of blonde hair. He bent over her and held his hand in front of her mouth. She was breathing, but slowly. He remembered that she’d cried out in English and spoke to her in her own language. “Miss?” he said, touching her shoulder gently. “Can you hear me?”
The woman moaned and moved her head toward the sound of his voice. She licked her lips and her lashes fluttered open gently. It wasn’t until he saw her eyes staring back at him that he realized it. She was absolutely gorgeous. With her creamy skin and aristocratic nose, she would have been striking no matter what the rest of her looked like. But with her rosy lips and wide-set olive eyes, she was like a painting, something worthy of the Louvre.
Who was she? he wondered. Where had she come from?
Adrien swallowed heavily. “Are you all right?”
“The boy,” she murmured.
“Collin’s fine, thanks to you.”
“Thank goodness,” the woman said. She pressed her hands to the ground and tried to sit up.
“Let me help,” Adrien said. He put his arm around her, and a bolt of lightning shot through his veins when his fingers touched the bare skin of her arm. He took a deep breath and shook his head to clear it. Adrenaline, he thought. It’s just the adrenaline talking.
