#35Romance Spotlight: Her Sexy Sentinel by Jenn Burke
This week’s Around the World in 35 Romance Books spotlight is on Jenn Burke and her book Her Sexy Sentinel, set in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Callie Noble fled to Ottawa to escape danger. But she is far from safe. Overwhelmed by a strange new power she can’t control, Callie is terrified and painfully incapacitated. Her only hope is to seek the help of the one man who broke her heart…
Derrick Llewellyn is one of the Sentinels charged with the protection of the city’s mysterious secret. Seeing Callie again is a shock enough, but the electricity between them is stronger than ever. Still, loving another marked individual is forbidden, and Callie needs his help—not romantic complications.
But there are forces at work in the city, and Callie finds herself inexorably drawn into a world filled with danger and untold magics. A world where loving Derrick isn’t just forbidden…it’s the surest way to drive them both mad.
This book grabbed me from the start with descriptions that brought the setting and characters to life. As a trigger warning, the book begins on an assault wherein Callie’s powers blossom to life, so if sexual assault is a trigger for you, I recommend starting halfway through the first chapter at the scene break. That beginning aside, the magic system and romance between the hero and heroine hooked me. I could not stop reading this book! Loved it, and I’ll definitely be picking up her others.
Next up on the reading list: Masked Possession by Alana Delacroix!
