Brier's Bargain

Book one in the Bodyguards in Love Series

Brier Blackstone is learning to find his way out in the world after spending most of his life in a hospital and he is also a man in love. His brother, Bram, is glad, but he feels a bit overprotective of Brier due to their childhood - and he is Brier's guardian.  Bram's fears seem well founded - and well within Brier's own nightmares - when Jackson Benoit, Brier's love, is gravely injured.  Hearing the news, Brier finds himself making a promise to God if Jackie would live and he intends to keep it at all costs.
 
Jackie greatly treasures the life he has with Brier and fears what the cost may be if Brier goes through his promise - which would necessitate testifying against a man who had worked at the hospital Brier had been a patient in.  Jackie has two options: try every way possible to stop Brier from testifying or doing everything he can to protect Brier if he can't stop him.

Brier's Bargain is a touching story of love, promises, survival and about being the best that you are able to be.  It is about hope and understanding and overcoming the past while looking towards the future. Wonderful read.
