Protective Instincts by Shirlee McCoy
After losing her family, and then nearly her life when she was held hostage in Africa, grieving widow Raina Lowery only wants to put the past behind her. Instead, she's finding her son's toys in the woods and dodging a gunman's bullets. Raina is trapped in a real-life nightmare—until Jackson Miller reappears. Months ago, saving Raina was Jackson's job as a member of HEART, a private rescue team. But now it's personal. The hardened protector wants to give Raina—and himself—a second chance at love. But first he has to save her…again.

My Review: Protective Instincts by Shirlee McCoy
This is one series I want to read all the books in the series. I really like the characters and want to see more of them. It is a good suspense. I did figure out who the bad guy was early on. I like the humor and banter between the brothers. I like that they worry about keeping people safe over money. It has some action, caring relationships and is a clean read.
Raina has suffered a lot in the past few years. She lost her family, then was kidnapped. Now she is trying to bring Samuel a little boy that helped her when she was a captive to live with her for a year and to get a artificial leg fitted.
Samuel has lost his family in Africa. Then he lost his leg during the rescue of the missionaries. You just want to hug him and comfort him. He comes here to where things are so different. He has a mind of his own about what he wants.
Jackson Miller helped bring Raina home from being kidnapped in Africa. Now he and another member of their team are escorting Samuel to Raina. When they get there they find Raina in danger. Jackson is not just going to leave her and Samuel to fight by themselves.
When Jackson is questioned by the cops, his brothers show up to help him.
Raina is wanting to help Samuel, but she can't face going back to Africa. So she arranges for Samuel to be escorted so he is not traveling alone. She has cleaned out her son's room to make room for Samuel. It was hard for her, but she is doing the right thing for her.
I just really enjoyed reading Protective Instincts.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it in return by Netgalley and Harlequin.
