Retired Navy SEAL James Morton is an expert in security and protection. When his cousin asks him to provide his expertise and services to the staff at Havenhart Academy---a boarding school for child victims of trauma---he doesn't count on working alongside folks who don't operate in his reality, like librarian Morgan Forrester. She's gorgeous, funny...and a witch? James deals solely in facts, science, and rules of engagement. There is no room forwoo-wooin his life, but she knows things about his missing daughters. When he receives a mysterious phone call about his eldest, he'll have to look past his beliefs and accept that even a natural-born Protector needs help.

This book is part of the Gifted Series, and the action overlaps the storylines in both Healer and Connection. It can be read as a standalone, but for more details on this world of supernatural suspense, you may wish to read those books first. Protector was originally released as part of the Happily Ever After Collective.
