Sometimes looking at the body of work of a romance author as accomplished as Brenda Jackson can be a little bit intimidating. Brenda has so many wonderful books out in the world and as a reader who sees a series like the Westmorelands and the Madaris family as a clear reason why I need to quit my job, and abandon my friends and family just so I can catch up, Forged in Desire, the first book in The Protectors series was a great place to jump back into Mrs. Jackson’s catalog. Who doesn’t love the start of a new series?!
After over six weeks serving on a jury for the trial of ultra criminal, Murphy Erickson, Margo Connelly is more than ready to get home so she can resume her life and her business as a wedding dress designer. I didn’t blame her one bit. Jury duty is an important civic duty and emotionally exhausting as all get out. Plus Margo can’t even carry out said duty without being creeped on by a fellow juror with the case of the hots. Margo has earned some peace and quiet, but first she needs to survive.
