Lara Spenser is running for her life. She guards a treasured relic from ages past that no one outside a select group is supposed to know about. Yet, an evil one has learned of its existence and his minions are hot on Lara’s trail. Although she has escaped to Ireland and is living under an alias, her special sixth sense tells her the “Hellhounds” are growing near. Injured in a car wreck that killed her beloved uncle, she is desperate for someone to act as her bodyguard.
Enter Connor O’Shea, ex-Special Forces soldier. Now the foreman for a crew of oil and gas well firefighters, Conn is on an extended vacation after a devastating explosion on his last job. Out of curiosity, he answers Lara’s ad for a “strong chauffeur” and takes on the job of guarding her temporarily.
Conn has his hands full, not only keeping Lara safe but also trying to help her recover from deep physical and emotional wounds. As days and weeks pass the two grow closer and romance blooms, but their tenuous peace is shattered one terrifying night by Lara’s pursuers. Conn may prove his ability to protect her, but can he help her fulfill her destiny as High Guardian of apocalyptic secrets? Can he rescue her from the soul-deep pain that holds her prisoner?

I enjoyed the book a lot, Lyn has a knack for describing so many aspects of daily life for someone living in a wheelchair hiding overseas. She did a nice job of preserving POV, I get easily confused when an author starts head hopping.
I would have liked more background about the Hellhounds and their master. But since this is only book one, I am confident about further revelations to flesh this story out. The sexy parts were very sexy, a little more than I am accustomed to.
I found a couple of spelling errors of the homonym type.
I rate this book 4.6 of 5 stars!
