Protecting the Enemy
The Protectors Book 2
by Samantha Chase
and Noelle Adams
Protecting the Enemy was originally published as Honor Bound. It has since been expanded, revised, and re-edited.
Twelve years ago, I gave up the love of my life because my family made the relationship impossible. Now that Ali has come back to me, I’m not going to give her up again.
It’s been years since I’ve seen her, and I know she’s hated me all this time. I never expected to see her working as an event planner for one of my father’s business partners. But here she is, always snooping around and getting into trouble. I’m supposed to be providing security, but I can’t stop thinking about her.
She’s up to something, and it might put her in danger. She sees me as the enemy now. Maybe I am, but I’m not going to lose her again. I might be hired to protect the man she’s working against, but my heart only wants to protect her.
This was like coming home to that one place that meant the most to you— that one place where you knew that you were accepted for who and what you were and loved for it.
I adored this couple and second chance romance storyline. Ali and Sebastian had fallen in love as teenagers but were forced apart by Sebastian’s monstrous father. During the final pages of the first book in the series, Sebastian and three other returning wounded veterans, who had bonded during boot camp, found they were struggling with the transition back into civilian life. The four friends went into business together, established a security company, and were working hard to get their fledgling company off the ground. Asking Sebastian’s wealthy father for a start on potential contacts proved to be a misstep as when Sebastian refused to bend to his will, his vile father’s deplorable business tactics were employed against him. The storyline was engaging, entertaining, relevant, occasionally amusing, and oh so steamy. I really liked the chemistry and banter between these clever and endearing characters and am looking forward to getting a closer look at the other two members.
About the Author
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina
