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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Love comes unexpectedly

Well written and well performed. Julie Garthan has a sweet and very expressive voice. Very good listen.

I have literally not stopped listening to this audiobook - just wow! My first book by this author and I’m genuinely blown away, I loved every moment of it. I love the characters, the storyline, the shocks and surprises along the way. I didn’t want it to end!! Will definitely buy more from Jodi Ellen Malpas. The narration was great too, I’m sometimes wary about women having to perform as a man but Julie did a great job!

Eh? It was o-Kay. Not my fave

The story was ok. I think I may have enjoyed the book better. I wasn't keen on the narrator. The H was a coward, but in saying that he was obviously in an abusive relationship and found that his reaction may have been natural considering all he endured. The wife seemed like a crack pot. Didn't enjoy the h character. In my opinion I think it was predictable and underwhelming. Just my opinion some may enjoy this story.
