SWORN TO PROTECT - Sugarland Blue, Book 1

May 7, 2013

Sugarland loves their men in blue, especially Detective Shane Ford. But Shane’s mission to protect and to serve has just gotten personal.... 

Detective Shane Ford, Sugarland’s favorite cop, has been blindsided by the sudden death of his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, and by becoming the legal guardian of Brad’s son, Drew—a bitter, angry sixteen-year-old with a dangerous secret. Shane is determined to pry the truth from Drew, but he manages only to alienate him—and winds up going head-to-head with Juvenile Officer Daisy Callahan, whose job is to protect the teen’s best interests.

Shane has always been drawn to Daisy’s beauty and strength, but he’s determined not to allow their intense attraction to interfere with his duty ever again. It’s a vow that will prove difficult to keep, as the realities of Shane and Daisy’s blossoming love and their growing bond with the grieving teen propel Shane headlong into danger for the new family he has sworn to protect.

“Davis’s new Sugarland Blue series, a spinoff of the Firefighters of Station Five series, features detectives from the Sugarland, Tenn., police department. In the strong series launch, Det. Shane Ford can’t forget his brief affair with fellow officer Daisy Callahan. Though hurt and betrayed by his rejection, Daisy doesn’t hesitate to offer Shane support when his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, is found dead from a suspected drug overdose, and Shane becomes the guardian of Brad’s 16-year-old son, Drew. As Daisy helps Shane and Drew cope with Brad’s death, the attraction between Shane and Daisy ignites, and she must decide whether she can trust Shane not to break her heart again. Daisy’s independence and tough nature cover a heart of gold, and her romantic interludes with Shane reveal hidden depths of his character beneath the surface machismo. Explicit erotic scenes and the mystery behind Brad’s death make this a satisfying, fast-paced read.” Agent: Roberta Brown, the Brown Literary Agency. (May)—Publisher’s Weekly Reviewed on: 03/11/2013

“What’s not to love about sexy men in blue with fast hands, true hearts, and the courage of their convictions? Davis certainly knows how to draw the perfect balance of vulnerability and strength, giving readers a superhero without a cape and pairing him with his perfect mate. She wraps it all up in an action novel that falls just shy of a police procedural, but with plenty of pure steamy romance and family drama. A great start to the Sugarland Blue series!" —4 ½ Stars, RT Book Reviews

“Sworn to Protect by Jo Davis brings us characters we are familiar with and the long awaited return to Sugarland the setting of The Firefighters of Station Five series. As a reader I have been longing for a return to this series and Jo Davis has not disappointed with this release. The hero is Detective Shane Ford, brother to Shea Ford from Line of Fire, and readers will finally have the opportunity to enjoy his story and evolution from bachelor to sudden family man. This book was well worth the wait and Jo Davis delivers a rich story filled with emotion and intrigue. The chance to see and hear about some of my favorite characters from the earlier books in the series was wonderful.

When Shane is blindsided by the death of his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, Juvenile Officer Daisy Callahan is the one person that he wants by his side and looks to for guidance. Suddenly thrust into the role of legal guardian, Shane is going to need all the help he can get to deal with his best friend’s sixteen-year-old son Drew. In addition, the mysterious circumstances surrounding Brad’s death and possible drug use have his detective instincts humming. Add in his attraction to Daisy Callahan, he’s already blown it once with her, he knows he’s not only fighting for his life but the very survival of his budding family.”—Reviewer Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews
