Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company.  She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her

Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either. 

With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her.  Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.


  • Fabulous fast-pace romance

    By Mslizalou
    I absolutely adore the Bodyguard Bad Boy series from Carly Phillips and was super excited to read her cross over book in Lexi Blake's Masters & Mercenaries series. Ms. Philips totally delivered with His to Protect to be a great addition to both series. I loved every single minute of His to Protect! Talia Shaw is super smart, and knows to call in help when she finds herself in trouble. I love when she calls her brother Tate for help, he immediately contacts his best friend Shane Landon to help Talia out. All I can say is the first time Talia sees Shane again after years, pretty much steamed up my kindle screen. OMG so HOT! The attraction between Talia and Shane was obvious from the moment they saw each other again. I loved that Shane was so very protective of Talia and did everything in his power to keep her safe and fought his attraction to her along the way. Seriously the sexual tension was so hot and once they finally got together I was fanning myself. Ms. Phillips totally delivered smoking hot love scenes in His to Protect. I also loved the elements of suspense in this story. It never overshadowed the romance and was just the right amount to keep me engaged with the suspense elements until the end. His to Protect is part of the Masters & Mercenaries Crossover Collection, and I plan to read each and every one of them, as well as the books I've missed out on in the Masters & Mercenaries series. Carly Phillips once again delivers a fabulous fast-paced romance that will keep her readers reading an wanting more. Rating: 5 Stars (A)

  • Couldn’t Put This Down!!

    By Evergreenbrdx
    Shaw has spent her entire life searching for a cure for heart defects. Finally close to the cure her lab is broken into and everything stolen. No where to turn she calls her brother Tate who tells her to go see Shane Landon knowing Shane will keep her safe. Guarding Talia is something Shane will do whole heartedly now if he can control the sparks flying between him and Talia. Neither of two thought love was in their future but love shows them how wrong they were.
  • Cross Over Heaven

    By KellyMcClure
    This is one of the novella’s in the new crossover series by Lexi Blake and six other awesome authors. I was very excited to see some of my favorite authors and characters come to life together. It amazes me how this can be done and seem so normal. It helps blur my reality even more!!! Talia was the nerdy book worm in high school with the cool brother and friends. Shane was one of those cool friends...Captain of the football team, star athlete, chick magnet...The one chance she had with him, her innocence and shyness pushed him away. Now she won’t!! Shane has had a pretty exciting life...Never did he think someone like Talia would come back into his life, especially needing his help. Marriage had jaded him to relationships. It just wasn’t his thing right now. But could Talia change that? And could he keep her safe long enough to figure it out? Fun, quick read with familiar characters all over. Do yourself a favor and pick up the entire crossover collection. Then if you don’t know one of the authors, you will....lots of good reading ahead.
  • Great crossover

    This was a terrific read. I could not put it down. It was fast moving and the characters were interesting and had a great backstory. Talia is a scientist for a pharmaceutical company that she found a breakthrough medication that others don’t want her to have so she needs protection which brings her bac to Shane, her brothers best friend and her crush from their childhood, who is a bodyguard for McKay-Tagart. When they go on the run they find out they both still have chemistry and both decide to just have what time they have together. But somehow whoever is after Talia they keep finding them. There is always something being going on in this book. Thee was so many twists and turns and the ending was great. Carly Phillips did not disappoint in this book. I highly recommend this read.
