One of the best things about reading a story by this author is the knowledge that it will be an exciting tale with humor and sensuality, and “Guard Dog” is no exception. The combination of sexy SEAL, danger, heat, and the light relief supplied by a ferocious canine with her own wardrobe makes this another fun addition to an exciting series. The glimpses of the other alpha males who serve with Mason whets the appetite for their stories and makes one hope that they will get their time in the spotlight soon!
"Guard Dog" by Sabrina York is related to the ‘Stone Hard SEALs’ and ‘Hot SEALs’ series and features Mason Steele, who is trying to adjust to his new life as an employee of the Guardian Angel Protection Service after his health issues prevent him from rejoining his SEAL brethren. Pansy Hightower has trouble believing someone wants to kill her, let alone that she has her own personal bodyguard…who won’t let her convince him that she already has a guard dog, fortunately for both of them!
Mason Steele expected to be a SEAL until the day he died. And he was. A pity they revived him. Now he’s been mustered out of the Navy and his life seems wholly unsatisfying. He misses the action; he misses the camaraderie; he misses being able to use his tightly-honed skills. He’s lucky to have snagged this job with GAPS—the Guardian Angel Protective Services—it provides some hope for his future. But the last thing he wants to do is babysit a spoiled heiress who is obsessed with the color of her nail polish and carries a Chihuahua in her purse.
But there’s more to Pansy Hightower than can be seen at first glance. She’s smart, sassy and determined to save the business her late mother built. She resents having a guard dog and does what she can to lose her muscular shadow. But when it becomes clear that someone is targeting her—perhaps for the same kind of fatal “accident” that befell her mother, she decides having the 240 pound SEAL with killer instincts and lethal hands at her back might be a good idea after all.
Until they share a kiss, that is. Until those lethal hands prove they have other talents as well. Talents that leave her breathless and wanting and weak. The last thing either of them wants is a relationship, but the scorching passion between them cannot be denied…even though it will undoubtedly spell disaster for them both.
