Threatening e-mails and letters have Blythe Cooper’s mothering instinct on high alert. Blythe is the tutor and guardian to child star, Ashley Nicole Davis, age seven. This child may not be Blythe’s, but that will not lessen the lengths she will go to in order to protect Ashley.

Cursed by his great-grandmother, a Mexican bruja, Ethan Ryan has played the field with no consequences. The curse made the three Ryan siblings sterile. When the Ryans’ security company takes on the task of guarding a seven-year old child star, it is Ethan’s heart that might be in danger.

Someone is stalking Ashley Nicole Davis and the motive is not clear. Police are not taking the threat seriously, since nothing can be traced. Ethan enters the scene just shortly after a stranger is seen leaving the Davis home, scaring the daylights out of Blythe. With Ashley’s summer tour schedule in high gear, it is up to Ethan and Blythe to keep this child safe. Will the two of them guard their hearts as protectively as they guard Ashley?

This story makes your heart hurt for a child who does not have the chance to act like a child and the two people who have her best interests at heart. This is such a touching tale of a couple coming together for the better good of someone else and finding love and romance along the way. That does not mean there is not suspense and danger. This book holds enough of that also as Blythe and Ethan work to protect Ashley. Ms. Conrad packs a lot of love and drama between the covers of Safe By His Side.
