Two gargoyles and a woman who needs them…

Medina Argos is a woman on the run from her present and her past. One of three sisters in an international art theft ring, she flees when a routine art heist goes too far. But this curvy girl is about to learn that some hearts beat to a different drum and the road to love is sometimes the less traveled one, even for a woman with secrets.

Thomas Sauveterre is a renowned art restoration specialist. Nothing is more important to him than his daughter, Gabrielle. When he takes on the largest project of his career, he also gains a security officer in the bargain. But love can be hiding in the most surprising places if he can only open his heart to find it.

Grayson Maberry is a man on the brink. Charged with protecting property and guarding the family he’s currently assigned, he is torn by duty and a love that may never be. But a true guardian will wait forever and this gargoyle may have just met his match. Twice.

Medina thought her sisters loved and respected her. But when she learns just how badly they have used her, she runs. Thomas thought his wife could at least accept who and what he is. But when she attempts suicide in front of him and their daughter, he hides. Grayson found his mate, married to a woman. But when his job involves protecting both his mate and a precious art collection, he perseveres. Can these three find a way to move beyond their past and grab a future together?
In Heart’s Protector by Ezrabet Bishop, Medina, Thomas and Grayson must find a way to accept the opportunity for love fate has handed them. I really liked these characters. Both Medina and Thomas had been hurt by love. They struggled to trust. They struggled to find their center. And then they met Grayson. He satisfied differing needs for Thomas and Medina. I loved that Ms. Bishop showed us why Medina and Thomas were so skittish. I loved that Grayson’s strength provided a port in their storm. My only issue with this story is that Ms. Bishop focused so much energy on showing how we get to this point. The cause of their pain was well articulated but I then struggled to believe just how quickly they trusted Grayson with very little communication, especially between Grayson and Medina. Grayson was there for much of Thomas’s pain so I found it easier to accept but not by much. I would have loved to see Ms. Bishop flesh out the growing relationship not just between Grayson and Thomas but also between the men and Medina. The connection between the three felt rushed which I regret seeing. However, overall this story was well written and enjoyable.
