BODYGUARD UNDER FIRE (4) by Elle James: James’ next installment in the Covert Cowboys, Inc. series blasts out of the gate with the opening pages and never winds down until the shattering climax, dragging readers along in its breathless wake. Wounded warrior Chuck Bolton returns to Wild Oak Canyon to take a job with Hank Derringer’s Covert Cowboys team but he doesn’t expect his first assignment to be protecting the woman he left behind when he went to war. Nor does he expect that PJ Franks, a waitress at the local diner, has an even bigger surprise for him — while he was away she gave birth to his little girl. Now Chuck has to adapt to parenthood as he struggles to keep PJ safe from a ruthless gang of narcotics smugglers who have targeted her and her child for reasons no one understands.
