Guarding Midnight

Canadian Muscle, #1

Suspense, raw energy, determination sweetened with racy romance describe what’s found between the pages of Guarding Midnight. Vibrations and excitement hit the reader’s senses as they explore the story. Get ready for danger and the true meaning of devotion. The title alone is an attention grabber.

Gifted author Kacey Hammell masterfully creates a narrative that has all of the elements of a well thought out storyline packed with realism.

The setting, characters, plot and resolution are well defined and in my opinion readers will have no problem identifying with the characters and their personas. The excitement builds at a steady clip and holds a reader breathless and waiting to exhale throughout several segments of Guarding Midnight.

The twists and turns embedded in the story are heartwarming and sexy. Ms. Hammell’s key characters possess all the qualities that captivates my spirit: strong, determined, no nonsense men and women with pasts that entwine into dynamic chemistry.

Gavin is the Canadian hunk of steel, former military hero whom I would love to embrace and have him protecting me in my private world. Hmm, to describe more of this awesome man would be a disservice to you. I want you to have the joy and pleasure of coming up close and personal with this fine upstanding, hunk of a man.

Shree aka Midnight, is a woman who inspires and delights everyone in her presence. Her unyielding spirit makes her a champion. Shree’s lifestyle is one of a woman with a clear, unwavering, and meaningful purpose. She shows off her tenacity.

Ms. Hammell’s development of the supporting characters is as substantial to the storyline as the main characters.

Guarding Midnight, in my opinion, is a book that will touch your soul with the conception of deep abiding friendship, love and sparks of raw, carnal energy. This makes Guarding Midnight a keeper. I anticipate the hot, spicy, and thrilling ride will continue as Ms. Hammell spins her magical writing skills to keep me hooked and up all night.

Book Blurb for Guarding Midnight

Being the hired muscle just got a whole lot harder...

No one knows sacrifice better than former Army Sergeant Gavin Bennett. He’s witnessed firsthand the emotional, physical, and mental toll of being caught in the crossfire. Being a bouncer-slash-bodyguard may not be Gavin’s dream job, but he’s willing to do just about anything to help out family. When Gavin reports for his first day of work, he quickly discovers a woman who threatens to crack his legendary cool.

Shree Walker is on the run from a dark past she tried to shut away. Battered and broken, happily ever after doesn’t exist for her. Ready to start fresh with a new life in a new city, she is happy dancing at the Vixen Club. She’d be even happier without the presence of the prickly new bouncer who won’t let anyone or anything get past his carefully guarded defenses. He’s a distraction she doesn’t need. And a temptation she can’t resist.

When Shree is kidnapped by the criminal mastermind hell-bent on taking the club at any cost, Gavin has to make a decision. Hold tight and continue to keep Shree at arm’s length. Or break down his walls and take a chance on something more powerful than them both: Love.
