Not a single thing ordinary about this story, it is a refreshing change from the norm. The Bodyguards’ Princess is suspenseful and sexy with terrorists and some light BDSM – an erotic ménage to leave the reader fanning themselves on one page while trying to figure out the mystery on the next.
Right off, the book begins with the realistic issue of Lalita Chetana, the Goth daughter of a UN Diplomat, surviving an attempted kidnapping by a terrorist group. Readers are thrown into her world as she struggles during her difficult recovery. She is depicted as strong but not perfect – the kind of heroine most readers love.
Still fearing for her, Lalita’s father hires two bodyguards, ex-Marines and friends Asher and Kent. While they do as much as possible to keep her safe, the terrorists are still using her without anyone’s knowledge by hypnotizing her into stealing UN secrets. When she’s framed and wanted by the government, Lalita goes into hiding with Asher and Kent who continue to guard her while using their old contacts to uncover the reason for the threats on her life.
The romance part of the story gets more intense when the men discover that the terrorists have placed a hypnotic trigger causing her to become aroused to the point of pain anytime she hears the word “bitch”. In such close proximity, neither man is able to hide their desire for her. And once her trigger is hit and it’s up to them to relieve her sexual needs, nothing between the three of them will be the same again. Adding to the realism in this book is the jealousy that plays out between the men which also plays into any woman’s fantasy of being fought over by two hot men.
Two sexy heroes, a suspenseful adventure and one fiery heroine… what’s not to like about this book? It's absolutely a five chocolate-dipped strawberry review.
