Publisher's Summary

A new standalone novel from Jodi Ellen Malpas, the best-selling author of the This Man and One Night trilogies.
Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy - the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.
Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily must be dangerous. But she's already in too deep. And Jack isn't only dangerous. He is forbidden.


What the Critics Say

"The latest queen of erotic literature." (The Sunday Times)
"Every kiss, every sexy scene, every word between this pair owned a piece of my soul. I could read this book a hundred times and still react as if it was the first time. The Protector is a top 2016 fave for me." (Audrey Carlan, best-selling author of The Calendar Girl series)

loved it

yet another fantastic read from jodi. for those who complain about the adulterous storyline I'd just say not to be put off by this. the author has handled this subject with great sensitivity, and if I avoided every work of fiction with a topic I found offensive then my kindle library wouldn't be half as full as it is.
If I had to find fault all I can say is there are so many American terms starting to show up in a story about a London girl that's set in London. but that's just me being picky, however the English accent with American pronunciations did get a little annoying as the story went on.
10 out of 10 for the story
9 out of 10 for the naration
