Author: D.E. Haggerty
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Special new release price of just $1.99! Will Ryker the sexy bounty hunter convince Phoebe to throw her vow to give up men out the window? She's got a secret. My entire life is a secret. No, scratch that. I have a secret. My life isn't a secret. I have a new life with new friends. I even have a job for the first time ever. As a PI no less. And I don't suck at it. Take that old life. So does he. When I run into Ryker - literally - my new life is looking better yet. Ryker makes my body feel things I've never felt before. Things I like a lot. Except, I'm not the only one with a secret. No, Ryker has a whopper of a secret. And Ryker's secret might cause my new life to come crashing to the ground. I have no idea what will happen, but like my boss always says Love will OUT. This romantic comedy features a former rich girl with a big fat secret, a sexy bounty hunter who makes her want to forget about her vow to give up men, two girlfriends who don't understand the meaning of 'mind your own business', and a makeshift family of former Army buddies who think telling dirty jokes is a sign of love. Each book in the Love will OUT series can be read as a standalone.
All Phoebe wants to do is be a full-fledged private investigator, like her boss, Hailey, is. The problem is she’s not who she says she is and can’t pass the background check. So, she does little jobs for Hailey and gets paid under the table. She’s a woman on the run and she can’t divulge her secret to anyone. When handsome bounty hunter Ryker swoops into her life, she’s unsure what to make of him. He call her ‘princess’ and wants to be her protector. She doesn’t need a protector or maybe she does in the worst possible way. When Ryker betrays her, she and the ‘uncles’ must choose a plan of action and decide once and for all if Ryker is indeed a protector for Phoebe?
A Protector for Phoebe is not your typical romantic comedy. In fact, it shook me to the core. Don’t misunderstand me, this is a five-star romance with plenty of flirty dialogue and a HEA ending. But when the hero’s betrayal is revealed, I felt hollow inside. Yes, I was truly emotionally invested and like Phoebe, it took me a very long time to forgive his treachery. Luckily, I had the comedic antics of the ’uncles’ to keep me entertained. D.E. Haggerty offers up an unexpected romantic comedy and trust me, you won’t see the betrayal coming. A must-read for romance readers. Highly recommend!

I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom's Harlequin romances, to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn't flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic before returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where, in between tennis matches and failing to save the world, I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.
