 Book Description (Amazon):

He won’t hesitate to put his life on the line…but will he ever risk his heart?

Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw’s otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now he’s back in Fool’s Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won’t abandon her again—and her daughter, too?

When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can’t resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice’s past doesn’t make him husband, or father, material.

Patience and Justice think they’ll succumb to just one kiss… Then one more… Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone’s control.


Just One Kiss is the first of three books in the Fool’s Gold Series Bodyguard Trilogy and it is AWESOME!  The story of Justice and Patience is one of just that having patience to find true love and finding justice in a corrupt world.  Justice is military man turned body-guard who is opening a body-guard training school in none other than Fool’s Gold.  Fool’s Gold is the same town he lived in for a short period when he was a teenager.  The same town he vanished from overnight, the same town he met Patience McGraw, and that just spells trouble.  Everything about this book is perfect – from the setting of Fool’s Gold, CA, to the loveable characters of Patience and Justice.  Not to mention the other characters who are strategically sprinkled throughout the story giving the book a very well-developed small town feel. 

Be ready to go through just about every human emotion as you are reading this book.  You will be laughing, sympathizing, loving, crying, holding on to the edge of your seat…..seriously this is a charming, intriguing read with lots of complexity.  If this was the first book in this series and it is this good I can’t wait for the others.
