The first in the series, this is my favorite of them all. Tortured hero and well done sexual tension, make this a compelling read.

Growing up, Jillian Kincaid had an ever present shadow--a body guard. Her father, a high profile publishing mogul, feared someone would try to harm his baby girl. For years Jillian felt like a captive, and now that she's grown, she fights to maintain her freedom. When she starts receiving threatening phone calls at the television station where she's an anchorwoman and at home, her father hires bodyguard Nolan Garret to protect his baby. Jillian doesn't want the incredibly sexy Nolan invading her space or filling her mind with lust filled dreams, but she's scared.

Former Army Ranger Nolan Garret had only been home from the armed forces for three months when his brother came to him asking a favor. Some "princess" needed protecting, and her father only wanted the best; grudgingly, Nolan agreed to help. Demons from his days as a Ranger haunt his dreams and soon the dreams include Jillian. Nolan has already lost too many who were close to him, thus creates a mental image of Jillian being a weak, spoiled-rotten, self-centered, daddy's girl. Self-assured, compassionate, hardworking Jillian soon shatters that image and Nolan finds himself falling for her.

Just when I was afraid TO THE EDGE would hit a sagging middle, Cindy Gerard threw in a twist I hadn't expected and revved up the speed. Toward the end when I was in the swing of things, thinking the novel would wind down, Ms. Gerard threw in another twist that hyped me up again. Watching Jillian and Nolan fight their attraction for each other while they searched for the identity of the stalker was sexual tension at the highest.

Jilliam Kincaid is a TV anchor who is receiving death threats. Her father hires her a bodyguard named Nolan Garrett, a former Ranger trained in Special Ops. The two characters have great chemistry, compelling stories in their lives and they make this a fun book to read. I couldn't put it down once I started it. It was a surprise to the end on who the stalker was!

Evening News Anchor Jillian Kincaid has a stalker. Threatening messages have been left at her home and work. Jillian isn't taking it too seriously, so her father hires a bodyguard against her wishes. Nolan Garrett is just doing a favor for his family's business by taking the bodyguard job. He has no interest in guarding a spoiled rich girl. But Jillian is nothing like he expects. She is independent, smart and sexy, and isn't going to let a stalker slow her down.

This is the first book in Cindy Gerard's Bodyguard series. Jillian is a tough, stubborn heroine who isn't taking the threats seriously. Nolan is a man tortured by the past. He will do anything to keep Jillian alive, but believes, based on his past, he may not be the right person for the job. This story was light on suspense until the last 1/3 of the book. The romance was a bit slow and repetitive. I wish the author would have worked more on the stalker portion of the story. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
