Brenda Storm loves being a doctor and is very good at it. So why is someone out to kill her? After the delivery of poisoned cupcakes, the hospital assigns her a bodyguard to protect her at all times. Kyle Martin is an ex-SEAL who is prepared to give his life, if necessary, to protect Brenda. What he's unprepared for is the attraction he feels for her. Brenda doesn't quite know what to think about Kyle. He's strong, cocky and bit full of himself but she finds herself drawn to him as well. They both are courageous except when it comes to love. Will they have an opportunity to explore the possibility of their feelings or will the killer get his target?

I enjoyed The Doctor's Defender. It was the type of story that keeps you on edge the whole way through. You also don't know who it is behind the attempts until the very end, which is something I really like. The characters were interesting to get to know. I liked that Kyle was strong and intense but was also a joker. Yet it was his faith that made him really appealing. Brenda was a strong woman but not unreasonable. The chemistry between them was strong. There were a couple of questions, as a reader, I felt were unanswered but it didn't detract from the enjoyment of the story. This is the third installment in the Protection Specialists Series but I didn't feel lost having not read the previous books. If you're looking for a quick, fast-paced, suspenseful read, The Doctor's Defender just might do the trick.

The Doctor Defender by Terri Reed
4 STARS It is a Protection Specialists series. I enjoyed it, but would have liked a little more information about the bad guys. Thier is nothing that should offend anyone in this book. Dr. Brenda Storm was trying to find a way to say no to a date with a fellow doctor when she got a delivery of Cupcakes in a fancy box. She did not want the calories so she offered the guard who brought up the delivery and the other doctor the cupcakes. Next the guard comes back to the doctors saying help and before long was dead. The cupcakes were poisoned. The hospital hires someone to be her bodyguard Kyle Martin. Kyle Martin takes her home to pack and her condo is trashed. He takes her to her parents house which they have a gated community and a security system in place. Brenda finds out while she is thier that her father has cancer. Her father was keeping it secret from her. Thier is another attempt on her life at the hospital and so they leave so other innocents won't be hurt. She does not take her phone but somehow she is easily followed around whereever they are. Kyle has good instincts but is having a hard time finding places that the bad guys don't find. Kyle belives in God answering prayers. He learned about God from someone else in the milatary with him and tells Dr. Brenda Strom a little when he offers to pray for her father to get better. Brenda has a hardtime believing in something she can't see. As Brenda life keeps getting in danger and Kyle keeps saving her they get closer and closer. They do have one kiss. Kyle knows that it is easy for someone to get close with thier bodyguard and warns himself why it would never work. The bad guy has a lot in his favor but Kyle is tough and keeps Brenda safe. Doctor Defender is action packed novel that I was given to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley, 09/03/2012 PUB Harlequin Harlequin Love Inspired ( )

Epigraph
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him I will trust."
                                                                                            ---Psalms 91:2
Dedication
To my husband, who is always my hero.
First words
"You're working late again."
    Dr. Brenda Storm glanced up from the open files spread out across her desk and winced. Dr Sam Johnson walked into her office, looking very GQ, with his gelled hair, pressed slacks and starched shirt beneath his white lab coat. She hadn't heard the door open, let alone a knock.
    The thought of having to fend off another of his unwelcome advances made her stomach churn. The plastic surgeon might have excellent skills when it came to facial reconstruction, but he hadn't a clue about her lack of interest in him. He was probably so used to women falling at his feet that he saw her disinterest as a challenge.
