Lalita Chetana, daughter of a United Nations Diplomat, survives an attempted kidnapping by a terrorist group known as the anarchists. She has a difficult time with her recovery, and her father hires two bodyguards, ex-Marines Asher Epson and Kent Warne, to keep her safe and give her time to heal. Unfortunately, even their skills can't save her from an enemy determined to destroy her.
Hypnotized into stealing UN secrets, she is framed by the anarchists. As part of their plan to humiliate and break her father, they plant a hypnotic trigger that anytime she hears the word “bitch” she will become aroused to the point of pain. She is forced to flee and go into hiding with Asher and Kent. The men become unable to hide their real feelings for her after her trigger is hit and they have to relieve her of her sexual torment.
Warning: This book contains hot,dominant men who will do anything to please their lady including light bondage, spanking, public caning, and decadent ménages.
The Bodyguards’ Princess is a unique story filled with suspense: terrorism, fugitives, hypnotism, and near death experiences. These aspects combined with the pure hotness of the main characters are wonderfully entertaining.
Lalita is a diplomat’s daughter who is wrongly accused of being a terrorist. On the run, her bodyguards, Asher and Kent, protect her and help her clear her name while searching for the bad guys. It doesn’t take long for the three to realize Lalita has been conditioned/hypnotized by her enemies to respond sexually to the word “bitch”. Though they work at finding a way to break her conditioning, the three also enjoy her intense sexual response. The sex scenes were hot while the ménage depicted was well written, with light BDSM and some M/M.
There were a few drawbacks, for example, Lalita’s personality annoyed me at times. She was…brattish at times and I thought Asher and Kent’s long lasting relationship goals with women were a bit ridiculous.
This is of Ann Mayburn’s books I have read and I must say, her writing style has caught my interest and I’ve already added a couple of her books to my to-read list.
I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy ménage with some light kink.
