Dangerous Promise was an original story filled with intrigue and interesting characters. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
A female bodyguard with enhanced abilities. A billionaire playboy committed to destroying people like her. A romance they didn’t expect…
Dive into the first book in the fantastic new Protector series set in the near future from New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart!
Nina Bronson used to be all human — until the experimental surgeries and internal technology that saved her life and enhanced her as a soldier also forced her to leave the army for private service. Now she and her peers are facing slow, painful deaths unless their technology is upgraded, and the one man keeping those upgrades illegal and unavailable is an obnoxious billionaire. A man too gorgeous for his own good.
A man she’s supposed to guard with her life.
Ewan Donahue is the public voice speaking out against the enhancement procedures of injured soldiers. But when his lobbying leads to death threats, he needs someone to protect him around the clock. He doesn’t want to rely on an enhanced soldier—Nina’s tech goes against everything he stands for. But he really doesn’t want her to be beautiful like she is. Doesn’t want her to suffer like she will.
Doesn’t want to succumb to the searing desire he feels for her.
As a series of attacks on his life send them to a remote cabin, their close proximity brings them together in ways they never imagined. They know they must prevent the need simmering between them, resist each other at all costs. But when tensions are high and danger is close, passion burns hottest of all…
I had a hard time at the beginning of Dangerous Promise. But, as the story progressed and I got invested in the characters, it grew on me. In fact, I can’t wait to start Wicked Attraction to see how everything gets resolved.between Nina and Ewan.
Ewen started off as an egotistical sphincter (in Nina’s words). He refused to allow her to protect him in the way she was accustomed to. But, Nina is just as stubborn as he is and eventually gets her way. Besides, he requested her specifically to protect him, now he has to live with the rules. She needs to find a way to control her libido around him. She can control every other bodily reaction because of her enhancements, she should be able to control wanting him so bad. But, there is something about him that has her intrigued and interested. She will only sleep with him on her terms though. She has not been able to feel any emotions since her surgery so she knows there is no way that she could fall in love with him and he doesn’t believe in love. But, when they finally connected, it was more than what she thought it would be and suddenly, all her emotions came back and love bloomed. In the end, she not only felt love but heart-break and betrayal.
Nina may be faster and stronger than him but there is no way she will be in the bathroom with him, sleeping on a cot in his bedroom and beside him every minute of every day. But, as danger strikes more than once, he understands why she needs to be there. She has proven that she can protect him from those trying to kill him and respects her immensely. Now, if she wasn’t so sexy, so enticing, he may have been able to hold himself in check around her. He can’t get involved with her with the secret that he is keeping from her. Besides, she hates him, hates what he lobbied for, hates what he stands for. Now, after finding out the truth, she just hates him. He will do anything to get her back into his life, to try to get her to understand. He’s just not sure if she’ll ever forgive him or want him back.
Like I said, I did have a rough beginning to Dangerous Promise. I’m not sure if it was because of the futuristic aspects of the story or the characters themselves. But, they both started to grow on me as Megan Hart brought them from antagonistic to friendly to being in love. She absolutely drew me in with the transformation of Ewen and has me very curious as to how she is going to resolve the differences now separating them. Like I said, I am looking forward to Wicked Attraction and can only hope that it s half as intriguing and interesting as Dangerouos Promise turned out to be.
