FORGED IN DESIRE is the first book in The
Protectors Series by
Brenda Jackson which is a spin off of The
Grangers Series. In
this story you will be reintroduced to the Grangers and how
Shep Granger became involved with the men of The Protectors.
If you read The Granger Series then you will
strong-willed, take charge men who meet women who are very
much their equal. FORGED IN DESIRE shows how a person with a
not so clean past comes out on the other side and changes his
Margo Connelly served on a jury and now her life is
threatened. Her uncle gets her a bodyguard who serves as her
protector. Lamar "Striker" Jennings will do anything to help
his friend. So when that friend asks for his help in
protecting someone he cares about he takes on the assignment.
Margo and Striker will lock horns because Margo does not like
the way Striker takes control. Striker is an alpha male who
expects Margo to follow his directions. There is a strong
sexual chemistry between them that Striker has every intention
of avoiding. Margo sees no reason why they can't go with
Because of his past Striker finds it difficult to go with what
he's feeling. It will take some soul searching and coming to
terms with his past before he can a allow himself to accept
what is in front of him. Margo understands the issues that
Striker is battling with and is very supportive in giving him
the room and space he needs.
This is a great beginning for a new Brenda Jackson series
about family and the dynamics involved in what family means
whether by blood or not. If you have not read The Granger
Series I recommend them because you will see how and
these men become the men they are.
Strong enough to protect her. Bold enough to love
When good girl Margo Connelly
becomes Lamar "Striker" Jennings's latest assignment, she
knows she's in trouble. And not just because he's been hired
to protect her from an underworld criminal. The reformed bad
boy's appeal is breaching all her defenses, and as the
threats against her increase, Margo isn't sure which is more
dangerous: the gangster targeting her, or the far too
alluring protector tempting her to let
Though Striker's now living on the right
side of the law, he's convinced his troubled past keeps
Margo out of his league. But physical chemistry explodes
into full-blown passion when they go on the run together.
Surrendering to desire could be a deadly distraction—or
finally prove that he's the only man qualified to keep her
safe, and win her love.
