Hudson Riggs has returned to his family’s ranch after years spent traveling the world. The former Navy SEAL accepted a position as a Personal Security Specialist, a job that didn’t leave much free time. He never expected his visit to his hometown to turn into another job. His former High School flame has been arrested for murder but Hudson’s gut instinct is she didn’t do it. All he has to do now is prove it.
For Sunny Travers, being back in Canyon Springs is bittersweet. She desperately misses her life in California but her grandmother needs her. Sunny’s world flips upside down when she’s arrested for killing the local hero. Now the citizens of Canyon Springs have turned against her and she’s forced to accept help from the man who broke her heart all those years ago.
Hudson knows Sunny hasn’t forgiven him. Hell, he hasn’t forgiven himself for how he left things but all his emotions take a back seat when someone tries to kill Sunny. Can Hudson protect Sunny long enough to apologize to her and right old wrongs or will the killer get to her first?

Murder/mystery with a healthy dose of romance.
This book is from a series (Brotherhood Protectors) I don’t think you need to read the previous books (I don’t think I missed anything)
Hudson has finally returned home, after years of serving his country and getting a job as a bodyguard he’s back to lend the family a helping hand at the ranch they own.
He’s taken a job as a favour to a friend, but this one could be the trickiest one ever!
Sunny didn’t think she’d be too long visiting her gran, that was two years ago! Leaving LA had been a hard decision, but she was needed here, if she’d known then that two years late she’d be charged with murder she would have thought twice! But it’s the hate the town is throwing at her that hurts the most!
Sunny and Hudson have history, childhood sweethearts, and lovers. But after Hudson left her, Sunny had moved on with her life. Knowing he was in town was hard enough, knowing he was now her shadow was going to be painful……
But someone killed Wayne, and if it wasn’t Sunny then they are still out there. And Sunny is in danger!!
Really well written, it’s not a short story, it’s somewhere in the middle.
I liked Sunny and Hudson. They had history and I was curious as to why Hudson left Sunny all those years ago.
I get the impression Sunny isn’t a damsel in distress, she’s an independent woman, but being made the target of a murder has to be frightening!
The clues are all there to figure out who did it, and a few twists along the way make it an interesting read.
So when Hudson finally gets Sunny to agree to be her shadow you can be assured he won’t be in the background.
There are sparks between Sunny and Hudson, but she won’t be letting him back in, he ripped out her heart when he left town, so he won’t be getting another chance. But Sunny can’t help reminiscing about the past, and with Hudson her heart won’t listen to her head.
But how can she even think of her ex when there is a murder trial hanging over her head?
Hudson is like a dog with a bone, he knows his Sunny didn’t kill Wayne. But who did? And will she be next?
My interest is now piqued, I’m going to be adding this series to my TBR list.
