She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste. And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.
Ginger Peet has been taking care of her teenage sister for years. She wants something more for her sister, and when a bundle of money drops in her lap she knows now is the time to start over somewhere new. Ginger and her sister leave Nashville and land in Chicago. Ginger has never been a big fan of cops but it seems Chicago is full of hot ones. It really is too bad she’s on the run.
Derek Tyler is intrigued by the sexy woman that just moved in next door. She is like a puzzle he needs to figure out and a gift in dire need of unwrapping. However, Ginger is making it difficult for Derek to get close. Determined as ever, Derek is willing to do whatever it takes to unravel the mysterious Ginger.
Protecting What’s His by Tessa Bailey is a sensual and hilarious good time. Ms. Bailey has a unique way of bringing humor into her hot stories. Ginger and her sister own this life-sized Dolly Parton statue and the scenes that include this statue are so darn funny! The connection between Ginger and Derek is sweet and irresistible. These two make a great couple. I just love how great Derek is with Ginger’s sister. Protecting What’s His does have some suspenseful elements and they add nicely to the story. Derek gets to bring out his Alpha side seducing the reader even more. The Line of Duty stories are proving to be captivating.
