PRAISE FOR HIS TO PROTECT
“His to Protect will have you on the edge of your seat the entire read. I swooned one moment and held my breath the next. Stacey Lynn will leave you wanting more—so much more!”—New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott
“Stunning characters and a bright, refreshing voice drew me in on the first page. I didn’t want to put it down!”—New York Times bestselling author Claudia Connor
Stacey Lynn is a simple girl, raised most of her life in the MidWest. Perhaps it was the long, frigid winters that left her so bored she had nothing to do but spend time reading every book she could get her hands on from John Grisham and Danielle Steel to Ann M. Martin and CS Lewis. As an avid reader, she began penning poems and short stories long before she reached high school and her love of the written word has never diminished.
Now, as a wife and mother to four children, she finds solace from the craziness of her life by creating steamy, sexy stories that generally tug at your emotions. What began as a hobby and a way to survive a Minnesota winter three years ago and the dream of publishing her first book, has now turned into an unending passion.
His to Protect is the second book in the fireside series. I really enjoyed the first one and was a little nervous about the second one being just as good if not better. Stacey definitely didn’t disappoint with the second installment, in fact I think that I may have liked this one a little more. I instantly fell in love with Declan. He was everything that I love in a book boyfriend. Watching the relationship between him and Trina unfold was amazing. The only complaint, is that I felt that their relationship moved a little too fast.
Overall His to Protect was a fantastic read. Well-written, and the character development was on point. Not that I would expect anything less from Stacey. While I did feel that the relationship moved too fast, I still had so much love for the story that it definitely deserved the five stars. I can’t wait to see what Stacey brings in the next book in the Fireside series.
