The Bodyguard - a highly entertaining, swoon-worthy contemporary romance.

Hannah Brooks is 5-foot-5 and is the last person you'd believe is a bodyguard. But she's the top female agent at her firm and loves working undercover and traveling all over the world. She's been unlucky in love having just been dumped by Robby, her fellow agent. The two become rivals for a big promotion when Glenn, their boss, gives Hannah the local assignment of protecting sexiest-man-alive actor Jack Stapleton, who is in the Houston area to visit his ill mother. If she handles this high-profile client well, Hannah will be a lock to head the company's London office. In order to not worry his family that he has a stalker, Jack pretends that Hannah is his girlfriend, and she is embraced as a refreshing change from his normal parade of models and starlets. And Hannah finds herself enjoying being surrounded by Jack's family. And Jack has turned out to be very different than she expected.

The always joyful Katherine Center has created a sweet, heartwarming story that will keep you smiling throughout. The Bodyguard doesn't break any new ground, but it will make you swoon and hope for a happily ever after. When it's time for a break from heavier reads, consider adding this enjoyable, feel-good book to your list.

Very nice review.

I have no idea why I didn't grab this one. I've read several by this author and really enjoyed them so much.

Thanks. This was one of her lightest books - I can envision it being a Hallmark movie.
