A warm home for broken hearts, the Fireside Grill serves up hope and healing in equal measure. Stacey Lynn’s sensual, deeply emotional series heats up as a jaded restaurateur falls hard for a woman who’s hiding from a damaged past.
Declan James lost his last ounce of trust the day his wife walked out the door, leaving him to save the restaurant they built together. Throwing himself into his work, Declan swears off women—or at least, women who expect him to stick around in the morning. But when he discovers a skittish beauty scrounging through the Fireside’s trash to feed her dog, Declan offers her a job and a place to rest her head. There’s just something about her that awakens his protective side. And soon, not even that mangy mutt can stop Declan from caring for her.
After one too many trips to the ER, Trina Wilson finally gathered the courage to leave her husband, taking only her car and hyperactive boxer. Unfortunately, life on the run proves harder than she anticipated—until Declan takes a leap of faith on her. But even as Trina starts to see beyond his gruff exterior, she can’t relax, even for a moment. Not with her husband still tracking her down. What Trina doesn’t know is that in Declan, she has a powerful ally—and, if she would only follow her heart, a devoted lover.

Stacey Lynn is a simple girl, raised most of her life in the MidWest. Perhaps it was the long, frigid winters that left her so bored she had nothing to do but spend time reading every book she could get her hands on from John Grisham and Danielle Steel to Ann M. Martin and CS Lewis. As an avid reader, she began penning poems and short stories long before she reached high school and her love of the written word has never diminished.
Now, as a wife and mother to four children, she finds solace from the craziness of her life by creating steamy, sexy stories that generally tug at your emotions. What began as a hobby and a way to survive a Minnesota winter three years ago and the dream of publishing her first book, has now turned into an unending passion.

Was it just me or did Declan totally steal every scene he was in His to Love?!? It left me anticipating his book so much so that I squealed when it hit my device. I then proceeded to devour His to Protect and I loved every moment of it.
Because oh my brooding hotness…. I desperately needed to know why Declan was so angry and bitter. Turns out that his ex-wife was a greedy, self-serving tart who left him carrying their dream of owning the Fireside Grill all by himself. And although he knows he’s better off without her – he’s struggling finding his new normal and success for his business.
A hungry dog (and a bit of fate) lands Trina at his doorstep and everything about her calls out to Declan. When he realizes that she’s in danger, all of his protective instincts kick in and he does all that he can to help her even though she reminds him out his ex-wife. Except Trina is nothing like what he expected and he finds that he truly admires her strength of character.
It isn’t long before they are both consumed by long dormant feelings of passion and lust ignited by one another. They develop a strong connection and you’re rooting for them to pull through the drama in their lives.
However, thanks to Trina’s baggage (aka her marriage), their romance is intense and exciting. I was on the edge of my seat, waiting for the moment that Trina’s husband would appear and throw chaos into this happy couple’s lives. It created an extra layer of depth to this love story and the way it all unfolded made the story even more enjoyable.
Overall, I loved the second installment, His to Protect and I can’t wait for the next book. I definitely recommend checking this series out – the Fireside Grill peeps keep you on your toes and a smile on your face! Grab a copy of His to Protect today!
