Generally speaking, we as readers know the trajectory of a bodyguard story. Our bodyguard hero is forced to protect the heroine from danger. She will be vulnerable and she will be thrust into our hero’s arms, and most likely, as a result, into his heart (if she wasn’t there before them). In the hands of a master, they’re amazing. (see Roxanne St. Claire and Cindy Gerard’s bodyguard stories )
We also know what a rock star story has started to look like over the years; a tortured alpha rockstar is a very obvious sexual object, strutting around and either showing people who they really are behind the mask, or allowing their real life, no holds barred personality full reign, both to fall in love with a heroine who loves them for being themselves. (see Nalini Singh’s amazing Rock Kiss series, for example).
But what if. What if.
What if a bodyguard falls in love with the rockstar they’re protecting. This is a story rarely seen in romance. But in the hands of someone like Tara Wyatt, it’s revolutionary. Which of course you’d be expecting considering the contents of her first book.
