Series Saturday: The Bodyguards by Cindy Gerard

When I was thinking of a series to spotlight today this series popped into my mind and wouldn’t go away so I figure why not share it with you. This was one of the first romantic suspense series I read. While I really liked the first couple of books my favorite book in the series is the 4th book.  Cindy has also just been nominated for a lifetime achievement award in romantic suspense.
