Publisher's Summary

A new stand-alone novel from Jodi Ellen Malpas, the best-selling author of the This Man and One Night trilogies.

People think they have Camille Logan nailed: Daddy's girl, beautiful, spoiled young woman with her father's bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But Camille is determined to have a life free from his strings.

Out on her own, she's made mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press. Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father's ruthless business dealings.

Caught between resentment and fear, Camille prepares herself for the measures her father will take to protect her. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.

Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating - both personally and professionally. He vowed to never let that happen again. Accepting the job of bodyguard to Camille Logan isn't the kind of distraction from his demons he should take.

Women and Jake don't mix well, yet protecting the heiress seems the lesser of two evils. But Jake soon discovers that she isn't the woman she's perceived to be. She's warm, compassionate, her presence settling, and his duty to protect her soon goes deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it. He needs absolution. He comes to need Camille. But he knows he can't have both.

    "Disappointing intro to new author"

    I listened to this book on audible and I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it.

    The narrators of this really spoiled my first experience of Jodi Ellen Malpas' work.

    "Disappointed"

    I was really looking forward to the release of this book on Audible. Unfortunately it's not a patch on Jodi's previous works. The storyline was ok but slow in quite a few places. I wasn't in a rush to listen to it and left a while before going back to it. The narrators are awful. Jake's voice is forced and trying to be overly manly with the constant use of the F-word. Camille's voice doesn't match the age of the character and sounds too mature and the long drawn out pronunciation of some words is just irritating. Let's hope her next books have different narrators. Sorry Jodi but this wasn't your best!

    "Refund please!!"

    I am such a fan of audible and this is my only negative feedback in 2 years of listening.

    I am not sure if it was the narration or story or both, but just not my cup of tea. I found this to be quite dreadful . Think I'll stick with Diana Gabalden for a while, Philllipa Gregory or Mary Janice Dickinson :)

    "Thoroughly enjoyed this book"

    This was my first book by this author and I must admit i really enjoyed it. I have just purchased a second book by her. This book kept me riveted and had lots of twists that I didn't expect. Great characters and the narrators were good.

    "Such a let downi"

    I loved This Man and the One Night
    series that I have listed too many times to count , but the female narrator has absolutely killed this book for me she is so wrong , her voice is to old and whilst she tries to put feeling into her performance it really does not work to the point that I have returned it for a refund I find it that bad plus the story is lacking can't get into it at all I will purchase an Ebook when it gets reduced to finish ,
    Sorry Jodi I was so looking forward to it

    "Anther great from Jodie"

    Thanks Jodie, another fantastic book. Love Jake and Cami.
    I would have liked an epilogue which would make the book more of a stand alone or are you hiding something?
