The Reluctant Bodyguard

This time we have a bit of a switch: the bodyguard is a woman! Chad, a local TV personality, has been getting some disturbing mail from a fan. His police buddy sets him up with a female bodyguard, Jenna. This book has it all: romance, suspense, and a guy working through some issues about needing to be protected by a woman. Not that bad. It’s dated, but I am partial to the suspense angle in romance.

The reason I posted this today is that this 1994 paperback was held together with tape and prayer. I blacked out the handwritten “barcode” number. This book also had several layers of a date due stickers on the cover. Question for the holding library: at what point are you willing to say enough is enough? I feel comfortable saying that you can probably weed this and pick up a used paperback in reasonable condition for a buck or two. This owning library has already spent more than the book is worth on tape, stickers, and staff time to buy several copies.

Time to let this go.


book summary

chapter 1



  1. “How would she reconcile her responsibilities as a police officer with her feelings as a woman?” If that is the tenor of the book itself, no, thank you.

    1. Yeah, I doubt “How would he reconcile his responsibilities as a police officer with his feelings as a man?” has been written in any romance novel.
