Can Christmas be the time when Kirby finally stops running and allows himself to fall in love with the man who saves his life?
CIA Agent Stefan Mortimer is cooling his heels in the UK until he can go home. Taking on easy assignments with Bodyguards Inc. seems like a good solution to keep him sane. He's used to life throwing him curveballs, and it’s just another day at the office when he rescues Kirby Devlin and his niece and nephew. Now he has to keep Kirby and the kids alive and stay professional.
Kirby Devlin has one priority; keeping his small family safe. On the run, and facing danger at every turn, Kirby finally runs out of places to hide on a snowy December day at an Edinburgh train station. Stefan comes to the rescue, saves him and the children. Is it possible that Kirby finally has someone to trust?
Now, if only it would be as easy for Kirby to trust Stefan with his heart.
"...Kirby was on the run with little Andy and Louise, having seen their father stabbed and left for dead. An unexpected attack at the train station left Kirby in a bloody mess and Stefan coming to the rescue. ... Love’s Design was a great addition to the Bodyguard, Inc. series, with a magical Christmas theme..."
This one was a little different than the other books in this series and I absolutely loved where it started out and how things ended. Kirby was such a great character and I love how he is with Andy and Louise. That's a good uncle right there, when he sees them in danger he takes off with them to get them safe.
Poor Stefan didn't know what to think about when he first sees Kirby being beaten and after helping him he refuses to go to a hospital or involve police. Unsure if this guy is really trying to rescue those kids or if he is up to something he offers his help until he can figure it all out.
What follows is a very exciting journey of a desperate man trying to keep his family safe and a man trying to help a man he is developing feelings for. I think I have mentioned before how I lovethe way this author includes previous characters from the previous books in each new book, which gives us an idea of how their lives are going.
Another great addition to this series and can't wait to read more soon! Five stars!!!!
