Viktoria Jonsdottir is none too pleased with the personal bodyguard her father has insisted on hiring to keep her safe. Safe from what, she has no idea, but she’s convinced having this brooding man hovering over her is completely unnecessary. All she wants to do is get to New York where her father is conducting high-level meetings for their corporation—meetings she arranged, to prove her value to the company. Sure, Lee MacCallister is sexy as hell and his eyes would make an ordinary woman swoon. But Viktoria is no ordinary woman. She’s not going to fall for Lee, even if he does make her feel things she’s never felt before. Like this strange new emotion that just might be…happiness. 

It’s a simple enough assignment for the former Army Ranger—protect some rich, spoiled woman for a few days then pick up the check. Only thing is, Viktoria isn’t like any woman he’s ever met. She’s tough, smart, and has a body that’s more than a little distracting. He can keep it professional, even though she’s beyond tempting as sin. But when things get dicey and Viktoria’s enemies prove to be far more dangerous than Lee anticipated, he realizes Viktoria has become more than an assignment—she’s become personal. And that could be the most dangerous thing of all.

RANGER’S PROTECTION is the conclusion to Leslie North’s SEAL and Veteran series – and it wraps up with a powerful story, a chance to catch up with others from the series and one hot, sexy, former Army Ranger protecting one beautiful, strong and stubborn businesswoman.  Sparks will fly and the banter will flow because that’s what Leslie North does best.

We’ve run into Lee in the previous stories, he’s been in the background and we’ve been aware of what is happening with his military career – but in RANGER’S PROTECTION, he gets the chance to shine.  I never totally warmed up to Viktoria.  I don’t really have a reason why simply the decisions she often made were reckless and put herself and others in the direct line of danger.  I get being independent and proving herself to her father and the company… but in the end, it was enough that Lee found her perfect for him, and I was content with that.

This is a fast-paced Romantic Suspense with sizzling moments, danger hidden, some twists and turns along the way and an intense relationship between Lee and Viktoria.  I enjoyed myself in this world and would not hesitate to recommend RANGER’S PROTECTION to any Romance or Romantic Suspense reader.
