honor guard series

Technical analyst for the International Protective Network, Rachel Grant arrives in Sunderland intent on tidying up her grandmother’s cottage, but the disaster she discovers requires more than a gentle sweep of a dust rag. Determined to please the most important person in her life, she trades her computer keyboard for a hammer and nails to make the repairs. She doesn’t count on the chilly reception from the locals who want to claim Nan’s home as their own.
Fractured ParadiseTour guide Aidan Camden wants to buy the cottage. He’s determined to acquire the property no matter how attractive he finds the current occupant. However, when tragedy strikes, throwing them both into a tailspin, he discovers he wants more than the house. He longs for the sexy American as well. Can Aidan put his own ghosts to rest in time to save the woman who’s claimed his heart?

This book is a fast paced romance, very sensuous with suspense added in.

There is a grieving hero and a heroine ridden with guilt.  Both of them want a cottage on Northumbrian Island. Rachel Grant was fighting to keep her Nan's cottage, but Aidan wants it too.  He is striving to honor a promise he made to his deceased wife.  Unfortunately for Rachel, the people on the island seem to be on Aidan's side. But then, wouldn't we all want to have the good looking her beside us?

Alexa Bourne was very descriptive in her writing, especially about Aidan. He was so, oh so, steamy, strong and caring. Rachel was intelligent and down to earth.

The author's description of the town made you feel as though you lived there. The town seemed to care a lot about Rachel, though she hadn't been there in years.  Let's say, most everyone liked her.  Rachel wasn't an outside beauty but an overall beauty inside.  When push came to shove, she became tough and strong. 

Aidan appeared to be the perfect everything, handsome, caring, a gentleman and a perfect lover.  The author made the sex very intimate and steamy.

I really liked this book from the beginning to the surprise ending.  You always felt like you were a part of the town, a part of Rachel and Aidan's lives.  This is a short read but you'll be in a trance every moment you're reading. You'll want to read this over again.  I'm not sure if you can get enough of the steamy sex between Rachel and Aidan.

I give it a 4 TUBS.

I received a complimentary ecopy of FRACTURED PARADISE by Alexa Bourne from Not Now...Mommys Reading for this review.
