Description

A warm home for broken hearts, the Fireside Grill serves up hope and healing in equal measure. Stacey Lynn’s sensual, deeply emotional series heats up as a jaded restaurateur falls hard for a woman who’s hiding from a damaged past.

Declan James lost his last ounce of trust the day his wife walked out the door, leaving him to save the restaurant they built together. Throwing himself into his work, Declan swears off women—or at least, women who expect him to stick around in the morning. But when he discovers a skittish beauty scrounging through the Fireside’s trash to feed her dog, Declan offers her a job and a place to rest her head. There’s just something about her that awakens his protective side. And soon, not even that mangy mutt can stop Declan from caring for her.

After one too many trips to the ER, Trina Wilson finally gathered the courage to leave her husband, taking only her car and hyperactive boxer. Unfortunately, life on the run proves harder than she anticipated—until Declan takes a leap of faith on her. But even as Trina starts to see beyond his gruff exterior, she can’t relax, even for a moment. Not with her husband still tracking her down. What Trina doesn’t know is that in Declan, she has a powerful ally—and, if she would only follow her heart, a devoted lover.

  • Embodiment of a Protector

    This is the first book by this author I've read and I must say I am truly impressed with her attention to detail in her character creations. Each movement is described in such detail to the point that I can actually visualize the characters entire demeanor and movements...it truly is as though I'm watching a movie in my mind. Declan can only be explain by one word...WOW! He is the embodiment of a protector of those weaker than himself, and with a kind and gentle heart thrown in. He was exactly what Trina needed to begin her healing from the years of abuse at the hands of her husband. The story grabs ahold of you from the prologue and takes you on a ride filled with suspense, and plenty of angst, but is balanced beautifully with passion and the growth of learning to live a new life filled with freedom. This is the first book (second in the Fireside series) by Ms Lynn I've read and now find that I'd not only like to read the first book in the series, but I'm anxious for the third book. At no time while reading this story, did I feel lost by not having read the first book...the author did a fine job of providing the backstory, as well as the appearance of the Tyson and Blue tied in nicely with Declan and Trina's story. This book was provided by Netgalley for my honest review.

    "His to Protect" is the second book in the "Fireside" series by Stacey Lynn. Both books are amazing! "His to Love", is the first book in the series. His to Protect can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading His to Love! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved how Declan was protective and caring in spite of his recent divorce. He felt a draw to Trina early on and always seemed to put her first. He knew she was fragile and was kind, caring and compassionate to her.

    His to Protect by Stacey Lynn is the second book in the Fireside series. This is the story of Declan and Trina who are two broken souls who find each other and together make each other whole. This is a beautifully written love story that grips your heart and takes you on an emotional journey. I highly recommend this book!

    Stacey Lynn did a great job of writing about an abused woman learning to let her walls down while the big overprotective guy does everything he can to show her not all men are like her abusive husband. Declan was very protective and even possessive with Trina but not in a way that would scare off an abuse victim. Everything about Declan draws you in. The way he treats Trina yet still carry his own hurt and bitterness from a failed marriage just makes you want to swoon and be the one to show him love. Trina, despite the abuse she suffered is very strong and caring and showed Declan that not all women are like his ex-wife. They were the perfect fit for each other. I enjoyed the side characters and look forward to reading Tyson's, Aiden's and David's story. ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
