by Catherine Bybee (Goodreads Author)Gwen Harrison:
The beautiful, high-born daughter of an English duke came to America to take over her sister-in-law’s matchmaking business. But just because she’s the boss doesn’t mean she can’t fantasize about making her own perfect match with bodyguard Neil MacBain. Will the enigmatic man who haunts her dreams cost her more than she bargained for?
The retired Marine can’t deny the effect blue-blooded Gwen has on his troubled soul or his battle-hardened body. But as a client, Gwen is off-limits—until a threat from Neil’s past returns…and Gwen is caught in the crossfire. Now to keep her safe he will risk it all: his career, his life…and his heart.

I don't know what it is with this series but I love them. They have the perfect combination of suspense, mystery, passion, family, loyalty, and love.
It has felt like forever that we have been waiting for Gwen and Neil to FINALLY get together. The first two books were like the longest foreplay between the two.
For Neil the giant with a jaded past and a soft heart
For Gwen, the lady with a heart of gold and strength of a warrior
Neil tried to deny his feeling for as long as he could not wanting to bring him down but even though it was obvious that those two had a connection well expect for Blake. Even the bad guy saw it which caused Gwen to be the target for a way to get to Neil.
With Neil being dealt this hand he is forced to shit or get off the pot. Well since it was a full book with a HEA we all know what he chose.
The development and ease of Neil and Gwen was great to see. With this relationship you got to see Neil open up and to finally see light in his otherwise dark world.
Loved the interaction of all the past characters and hopefully some new ones. This series just always seems to put a smile on my face when I read them.
