Guarding Suzannah

Serve and Protect Series

Book 1
Norah Wilson

Criminal defense attorney Suzannah Phelps is the bane of the Fredericton police department (they call her She-Rex for her habit of shredding cops in the witness box). She is currently being stalked, but is reluctant to report it to the police, whom she half suspects of being the perpetrators. But when Detective John (Quigg) Quigley learns of it, he's determined to protect her, at considerable risk to his career. They've struck sparks off each other in the courtroom, and he's burning to do the same in the bedroom. When the danger escalates, he has the perfect excuse to pose as her boyfriend, but the closer they get, the more the lines between pretense and reality blur.

What if changing your name is all it takes to change your life? 

For Izzy Gordon, it’s put up or shut up time. How can she go to her ten-year reunion as a lowly traffic manager when she’d always insisted she’d be a filmmaker? She’s determined to make her dream a reality by creating a documentary about the gangster history of an old lodge. But her parents own the property and want to sell – and the lodge owners are fighting to stay open. So Izzy decides it’s best not to tell anyone who she really is.

Gib Murphy, globe-trotting photojournalist, is home recovering from an injury he got on a deadly assignment in Afghanistan. All he wants is some peace. Instead, he’s landed in the middle of his grandparents’ battle to keep the lodge they’ve run for forty years. And then he meets Izzy – and it’s lights, camera, action!

But what happens when Gib discovers Izzy’s real identity? Will their blockbuster beginning become a box-office flop?
