Blurb


I’ve always thought of myself as a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of person. I wanted to save the world, or at least leave my stamp behind. In my own naïve way I thought I could bribe karma but life has a way of teaching us lessons. 

I never knew how selfish I was until my life was ripped away from me. 

Taken. 

I’m forced to watch as they torture and kill my family … and I know I’m next. 

I hear their screams. 

I watch them die. 

It’s the worst kind of torture 

Then he comes. He made a promise to my brother. It’s the only thing keeping him bound to me. 

A promise to protect me.

I should set him free of the promise … but I don’t. He’s my shield against karma. He’s my protector.

Excerpt 


Have you ever seen a bomb detonate? Just after the explosion, there’s this hissing silence and then chaos follows - rubble, destruction and so much pain and sorrow. 

Right now, it’s as if that scenario is being played in reverse. 

It’s a terrifying chaos as that man goes to stand in front of Dad. Dad’s still unconscious. He can’t even do anything to defend himself. 

Life seems to be returning to my body in flashes. First, I start to yank at the chain. Then my mouth opens in a horrifying, silent scream. 

The man grabs a fistful of Dad’s hair, shoves his head back, and then I watch as he presses the blade to Dad’s neck. 

A violent pain blossoms in my chest and it threatens to bring the walls down around me. I watch as blood starts to trickle down Dad’s neck and then the man shoves the blade deeper. 

I start to scream as hysteria hits me in waves. Part of me is caught in a nightmare-like state, refusing to believe that this is actually happening right now. 

The man just walks away after slicing Dad’s neck open. My eyes are glued to my father’s blood flowing from the wound. The hysteria rages inside of me until I’m swept away in a maddening mania. 

I can’t think clearly anymore. 

I can’t process what I’m seeing. 

All I can do is weep, scream, and yank at the unforgiving chain around my neck. 

This - whatever this sick and twisted situation is - cannot be happening.

This is not real … this is not real … this is not real.







My Review

It’s been a while since I’ve read a story that took me on such an emotionally draining joy ride like this book did.  Protector is my very first Michelle Horst novel and it won’t be my last.

Riley lives an amazing life, she has travelled the world, racking up good karma points and now she is coming home.  Her family is everything to her, especially her big brother Josh.  But nothing could prepare her for the horrific turn her life is about to take.  From living the perfect, carefree life to watching everything and everyone she loves ripped away from her in the most savage way.  How do you survive when you would give anything to never wake up again?

Griffin is the ultimate in tortured heroes.  This guy is going to stay with me for a long while yet.  The perfect combination of rock hard protector and sensitive, soul melting charisma, He’s made it to my top five-book boyfriend list of 2016.  Backed up with well-developed secondary characters, and a captivating storyline, Protector and Michelle Horst’s writing style has stolen a little piece of my heart.

As beautiful as it was brutal, filled with twists and turns.  It is about surviving the un-survivable, conquering the nightmares that even the light can’t keep away and finding the strength to be the anchor for another, even when you are barely hanging on yourself.
