Product Description

Product Description

What would you do if the woman you loved was the one person you could never be with?

Elizabeth Grayson doesn't want a bodyguard. She's worked hard for her normal life and her job as a violinist in the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, and the last thing she needs is a reminder of how much power her father still has over her. He's a good enough man, but as the founder of a booming seafood empire--with a sizable fortune to his name--he's a prime target for his less than ethical competitors. And that means Elizabeth is a target, too.

She doesn't quite believe her life is in danger until the day of the "accident." But when her father hires a bodyguard for Elizabeth, she still utterly refuses...that is, until she meets the mysterious Layne O'Connell. Sarcastic, charming and secretive, Layne is hired to keep Elizabeth safe. But protecting her heart wasn't in the job description.

As Elizabeth's life is threatened again and again, a strange mystery unfolds, and it seems that even her father is keeping secrets from her. And when Layne reveals her true nature, Elizabeth's world is thrown upside down.

Because Elizabeth has fallen for the one person she can't be with: the brooding werewolf who was charged with keeping her alive.

Part heart-pounding mystery, part epic romance, the novel The Protector, the first book in the Lone Wolf series, will leave you spellbound. It is approximately 62,000 words (several days worth of reading or so).

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed... 11 May 2014
By Tracy R Pennington - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I paid more for this story than I normally pay for them. I don't mind when a author leaves me wanting more, but this one left me hanging in a way that I won't be continuing with the story, and come on , not one good sex scenario, or even a tease.

As with her previous books Bridget comes through with another amazing read. A lot of twists I definitely didn't see coming. And as always, I couldn't put it down. I will be waiting anxiously for Book two.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yet, another cliffhanger 9 Nov. 2014
By MC - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like someone else mentioned, I too paid more than I usually pay for these stories, specially such a short one. I like fantasy when it relates to wolves, and while I was following the Madison wolves books, I figured I needed another series.

Well, I paid much more than the other books, and it did not even have an ending. It was a cliffhanger to make us spent, probably another $8.00 on the second book. Well, I guess I will never find out the end of the story. I truly hate this type of selling strategy and they pretty much turn me away than making me come for more.
