Stand-alone Crossroads Bodyguards romance, complete with HEA--and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

Sexy, newly single, former Marine Andrew Charles Elliot IV, aka Ace, was ready for a life with no drama and no one to answer to. After a broken engagement and twelve years in the Corps he hoped his fresh start in Harper's Crossing would be just what he needed. But after laying eyes on his new neighbor, he knew all he really needed was her...

Stephanie Holland excelled at taking care of others both at work as a nurse and as an incredible big sister to her twin siblings. The gorgeous redhead had no room to think of anyone else...that is until he moved next door...

After years of putting the needs of others before her own, would she be able to surrender to the idea of someone taking care of her? Would Ace be able to convince her that he wanted to be there for her--mind, body and soul?

Could he make her see that she was All He Needs?


  • Such an awesome story

    More fabulousness from the Crossroads series by Melanie Shawn! Ace was amazing with Stephanie his perfect match! I had no problem devouring this book quickly. I loved the interactions with Stephanie's twin siblings. Then I wanted to smack her mother repeatedly. Such an awesome story. Don't hesitate to pick this up.
  • Ace is so yummy you will want to eat him up with a spoon!

    Ace has been burned by love and isn’t willing to partake in anything remotely resembling a relationship. So he can’t explain why one look at the pretty girl next door has him wanting to get to know her better. Stephanie has had to be an adult from a very young age. When her mom left her to care for her twin siblings she as carried the weight of the world on her solders. Stephanie cannot afford any sort of distractions the first being the sexy guy next door who has bad news written all over him. Ace and Stephanie are the cutest couple in Harper’s Crossing! Watching Ace fall head over heels for Stephanie was the sweetest hottest story I have read in a while. I loved how from the very beginning Ace could see that Stephanie needed someone to count on and to share her burden with. I loved watching Stephanie realize that she didn’t have to do everything alone and that letting her sexy next door neighbor not only help her out but be the emotional support she so desperately needed was so heartwarming. I love all the books in the Crossroads series but this one really got my heart. I couldn’t put this book down and read the whole thing in a day! If you haven’t read this series yet start with this one and get good and hooked then go back to the beginning and read all of the books from the start. You will not be sorry!
  • Another GREAT read!!!

    Melanie Shawn manages to write a fantastic book EVERY SINGLE TIME! This writing duo never disappoints. I adored this story. I loved sexy, swoony, southern accent Ace and the way he fell head over heels for Stephanie. Stephanie is probably my favorite woman in this whole series. She is simply incredible. Strong, resilient, focused, loyal, caring and the list goes on.She is someone to admire! These two were beyond perfect for each other. I loved how they complimented each other in just about every way. I love that Ace didn't see Stephanie's loyalty of caring for her siblings as a burden, but as another reason to love her more. What a sexy, fun, perfect read!!!
