CONCEAL, PROTECT is my first book by Carol Ericson and it
will not be
my last. The writing in CONCEAL, PROTECT is easy to read
and the plot moves at a great pace. What I like about this
story is that the hero and heroine are smart about their
choices and don't make you roll your eyes while reading.
They don't take unnecessary risks and are careful. It makes
for a more realistic read.
Carol Ericson does a great job with Noelle, the heroine of
the story. I like Noelle's strength but also understand her
insecurities considering her background. She isn't a damsel
in distress, but a regular woman who is trying to live her
life while being followed by an international arms dealer
for something she knows nothing about. J.D., the hero and
secret agent manages to insert himself into Noelle's life
without raising too many red flags. What starts out as
routine protection of Noelle, the subject, turns into more
than J.D. planned.
CONCEAL, PROTECT has more suspense than romance. I prefer a
little more romance in my stories, but I think the balance
is very appropriate to the story and the characters. Carol
Ericson writes a story that is intriguing, suspenseful,
emotional and hard to put down. I recommend CONCEAL,
PROTECT and look forward to reading other books in the
BROTHERS IN ARMS series.
A disappearing roommate and a break-in are all Noelle Dupree
needs to take what may be a permanent vacation. The Colorado
ranch she inherited is the perfect getaway. It even comes
with a hard-bodied cowboy who seems more than willing to be
at her beck and call. But there's more to "Jared Douglas"
than meets the eye.
Although Noelle thinks everything that happened is random,
Special Agent J.D. knows better. An international arms
dealer has set his sights on Noelle, and he'll stop at
nothing to get what he wants. Keeping Noelle safe soon
becomes more than just a mission for the highly trained spy.
Because this time, it's not only his career that will suffer
if he fails .
