When Natasha is shot after the first concert, her fiancť, Jonce Striker, steps in.  Determined to keep Natasha safe, he sends his best men, Pitt and Bigun, to watch over her.  Striker wants Natasha to marry him and give up her dangerous line of work, but he's having trouble convincing her of that fact.

Natasha's torn between her love for Striker and her desire to do her job. Will she give in to Striker's demands and forget about her profession? Or will she stay with Giki and do whatever it takes to protect her? The choic is obvious to Natasha, but will she live to regret it?




Review Blurbs

Cata Single Titles, Donna, Reviewer:

The Bodyguard and the Rock Star is a stand-alone book but why deprive yourself of a single amusing word from the talented pen of Christy Tillery French? We learn more about the relationship of fun-loving Natasha and hunky mysterious Striker in this book and the pages are in danger of spontaneous combustion. Ms. French weaves familiar characters into a fresh storyline with humor and wit that will snag readers immediately and send them into gales of laughter. From the cat fight between Natasha and Giki over a sinfully yummy doughnut to finding Giki in bed with Bigun and Pit; readers indeed have a treat in store with The Bodyguard and the Rock Star by Christy Tillery French.


The Long and The Short of It, Snapdragon, Reviewer:

Striker is a strong, take-charge type man and, predictably, Natasha both admires and loves him. He is, after all, the sort to set any pulse racing. Natasha is her own woman, though, and when it comes to her profession, no one else gets to "take charge". The pressing danger, crazy rockstar, the battle of wills in the moment-by-moment changes in the romance will keep readers guessing right through. The background of the tour, Natasha's strange array of assistants-and even the oversized photographer (Lumpy) all add quality and character. This is an absolute page-turner, but be warned: if you attempt to read it in your cubicle at work, people will wonder why you are laughing so hard. I give this one as many books as we've got and just wanted to know if I can nominate it for some kind of award.

Coffee Time Romance, Maura, Reviewer:

The story made me laugh and had me at the edge of my seat in suspense all within a couple of pages. Natasha is a magnet for trouble, and though she is competent, circumstances just do not cooperate. I could see why she and Striker have so many conflicts. His secrecry regarding his assignment with the large-breasted readhead only adds to her insecurities, since he is constantly undermining her in her current job, first sending Pit and Bigun, unique characters by the way, then assigning her her own bodyguard. He is one sexy character and the love scenes and fights between the two are scorchingly hot. Giki is  a combination of the worst traits of any rock star ever to grace the tabloids. I love her addiction to donuts and chocolate. Her entourage is controlling and manipulative and not in a good way, leading to a very dangerous and exciting conclusion. Thsi story is a definite keeper to be reread.

Midwest Book Review, Laurel Johnson, Senior Reviewer:

Bodyguard Natasha Chamberlain is back, and to quote her, "Dang!" Book Three in the series is quite a thrill ride and may just be Christy Tillery French's best book yet. Her distinctive writing style gains strength with each new book. Fans will be happy to know that Natasha hasn't changed a bit this time around. She's still feisty, stubborn, strong-willed, and wildly in love with her delicious fiance, Jonce Striker. No one does action adventure and fiery romance better than Christy Tillery French. That is a fast, fun, exciting read.
