          People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy's girl; beautiful, spoiled young woman with her father's bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But Camille is determined to have a life free from his strings. Out on her own, she's made mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press. Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father's ruthless business dealings. Caught between resentment and fear, Camille prepares herself for the measures her father will take to protect her. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.
          Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating--both personally and professionally. He vowed never to let that happen again. Accepting the job of bodyguard to Camille Logan isn't the kind of distraction from his demons he should take. Women and Jake don't mix well, yet protecting the heiress seems the lesser of two evils. But Jake soon discovers that she isn't the woman she's perceived to be. She's warm, compassionate, her presence settling, and his duty to protect her soon goes deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it. He needs absolution. He comes to need Camille. But he knows he can't have both.

Here’s a book trailer for THE PROTECTOR for your viewing pleasure:

British talent Jodi Ellen Malpas sold hundreds of thousands of e-books of her passionately erotic trilogy This Man before landing a major US publishing deal and sailing straight to the top of the New York Times bestsellers chart in a few short months. Success quickly followed in the UK, with thousands of readers falling head-over-heels for the devastatingly handsome Lord of the Manor Jesse Ward and his feisty counterpart, Ava O’Shea, as all three books became major Sunday Times bestsellers. This was followed by further success with her second series One Night, which introduced the irresistibly enigmatic M.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse and, mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males. 

Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers. She’s now a proud #1 New York Times bestselling author – all six of her published novels having hit the New York Times bestsellers list – as well as a Sunday Times bestseller and international bestseller. Her work is published in over 20 languages across the world.

Thanks for dropping by today during Ellen’s visit. Have you ever had or wanted a bodyguard? What do you think it would be like?


  1. Fortunately my low key life (and minimal importance) means that a bodyguard has no relevance to me. I really don't envy those who spend their lives in the public eye, particularly those who do so from birth.
    Thank you for introducing Jodi's work to us.

  2. Reminds me of the film The Bodyguard although I'm sure it's much better.
    No bodyguard needed for me since I've kept my private life private.

  3. I've taken my husband along to some of my events as a bodyguard.

  4. Hmm...what an interesting idea for a plot context - a bodyguard! And these sound like interesting characters. Thanks for sharing, Mason.

  5. Wow, she's had quite an impressive career. Congrats to Jodi!

  6. The Protector sounds really good. Nice trailer!

  7. The author's last name caught my eye. There used to be a small village in Cornwall that I often visited (wonderful pub by the river) called Malpas.

  8. I love the trailer. This looks like a fantastic read.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
