Duncan and Jade

This is book number 1 of the Claiming Her Heart series and focuses on Duncan and Jade. Duncan meets Jade at the hospital waiting room while he is there with his brother and she is with her friend. They really hit it off and fall hard for each other quickly. I love how protective and supportive Duncan is when it comes to his brother and how Jade really stepped up for his brother when he desperately needed it. This was such a great story and a great introduction to the series.

Great Story

Jade gets a call from her friend that she needs a ride to the emergency room. So Jade rushes to her friend's place without even changing from her pajamas and gets her to the hospital. While in the waiting room she sees a sexy man and starts looking at him out of the corner of her eye. When they both get caught staring at each other they introduce themselves and learn they are waiting for other people. She tells Duncan about her life and where she works but they are interrupted when he needs to go see to his brother. When she is at work she never expected to see Duncan but is happy to see him. Duncan couldn't stop thinking about Jade so he went to find her at her work. They started dating and she unintentionally learns what's wrong with his brother. Will they be able to be together with how sick his brother is? Can Jade show Duncan she can be a support to them?

This is an amazing story that will hook you from the first page. This is a well written and very entertaining story. I would recommend this book to any book lover.

Claimed my heart........

Protector is the first book in the Claiming Her Heart series and this one claimed my heart. It is a wonderfully written sweet and charming story with an engaging story-line that is filled with emotions.
Jade is twenty-three years old and works at the ring toss booth at the big amusement park by the beach. Her parents died when she was young so she was raised by her grandmother. Unfortunately she also passed a few years ago and now Jade is on her own. But she has her bestie Isla who looks out for her, well they are there for each other through thick and thin, including lost eggs and emergency room visits.
Duncan is thirty-five years old and is a lifeguard at the beach, starting when he was twenty. His younger brother Blake has a serious health condition so Duncan is always looking out for him also as their parents died several years ago. It is just the two of them but Duncan would like to have a family of his own if he meets the right woman.
Duncan and Jade meet late one night in the emergency room waiting lounge. Jade has driven Isla there when an adult toy she was testing, as she is is in marketing and the company is a new client, sort of got stuck. Duncan is there because Blake was not doing well and had to be taken in. As they both wait they spot each other and start checking each other out finally making eye contact and starting a conversation. When Duncan is called in by a nurse they say goodbye and she is gone when he leaves. But a few days later he saves her from an obnoxious young man at her booth and then shows his good heart when two young boys come to the booth and he shares his tokens with them ensuring they both walk away with a big stuffie. Let's just say that Duncan did it right there for me and also Jade. They go on a couple wonderful dates and so much more. But when Blake is taken into hospital and it is serious Jade discovers, by mistake, what is happening and she will not let Duncan go it alone. So she rushes to the hospital to be there as a support for Duncan and then goes above and beyond to ensure his heart stays whole.

Kate Hunt has really won the biggest stuffie with this book. It grabbed me from the beginning and kept me riveted until the end. Both Blake and Jade are wonderfully written and developed, both doing anything they can for each other without expecting anything in return. Isla had me laughing so hard every time she showed up and Blake pulled at my heartstrings with his humor in the face of his mortality. This story-line took me from one extreme to the other with emotions, shedding a few tears along the way. The Epilogue is sweet and the perfect delicious happiness that made me smile. I can't wait to read the next in this series. Definite Recommend Read!!!
