Product Description

"5 out of 5 Breathtaking Stars!!!" -The Book Nuts

"Amazing heat, a bit of suspense and an unexpected shocker near the end." -Goodreads

* International Bestseller * Recommended Read on USA Today's Happy Ever After blog. *

One scar.
One betrayal.
No escape.

When Sloan Reynolds beats criminal charges, Melissa Jones stops believing her wealthy, connected ex-husband will ever pay for what he did to her. Derek Alexander can't accept that--a tiny silver scar won't let him forget, and as a leader in the security business, he is determined to get the man who hurt his fiancée.

Then the body of a former call girl turns up dead. She's the breakthrough Derek's been waiting for, the link to Sloan's sordid past he needs. But as usual, legal paths to justice have been covered up or erased.

Derek's ready to do whatever it takes to protect his family when his partner Patrick Knight devises a plan that changes everything. It's a plan that involves coloring outside the lines and taking a walk on the dark side. It goes against everything on which Alexander-Knight, LLC, is based. And it's a plan Derek's more than ready to follow.

A STAND-ALONE, ONE TO HOLD NOVEL. Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and elements of erotic romance, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smoking Hot!!! Grab a Fan Ladies! 10 May 2014
By Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was smoking hot with lots of sexy scenes. You may want to take your kindle into the bedroom for this one.

I highly recommend that you pick up One To Hold before reading One to Protect. I have read all the books in this series and have loved them immensely. One to Protect picks up after One to Keep. Melissa and Derek are living the happily ever after with a baby on the way when a dead call girl shows up that looks identical to Melissa. Derek knows that Sloan is involved in her death and is out to prove it this time. How far will he go to risk his own life and miss out on the wonderful life he has?

This book will have you on the edge of your seat. Sloan is an evil bastard and he will stop at nothing to get back what belongs to him. When Melissa starts hearing noises in her house at night I was literally spooked. Then her necklace goes missing and I thought for sure that Sloan was going to kidnap her and drive Derek to an early grave. Talk about evoking emotion. I was seriously anxious to see what was going to happen and of course could not put the book down because if I tried to go to sleep I would be hearing things that go bump in the night.

Tia does a great job developing her characters and you see Melissa only get stronger. I really enjoyed seeing Patrick and Lainey again and look forward to the next chapter in their story.

If you like alpha males and lots of scorching chemistry pick up Tia’s entire series. You will be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book and this series!!! 23 April 2014
By Vera Machado - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Love this book and this series!

In this book the story of Melissa and Derek continues. They are in a relationship and expecting their first child. Although they're happy, they still have a few obstacles to overcome: the fact that they live in different cities and Melissa's ex-husband.
Melissa's ex-husband continues to harass her. In order to protect her, Derek enlists the help of Patrick and Toni. The three of them work together in order to bring Sloan down. Will they be successful?

Love Melissa and Derek together. They have an amazing chemistry. Melissa is a very strong woman, trying to regain the control she lost of her life when she was married with Sloan, while trying to be happy with Derek. Derek is one of the most swoon worthy male charecters I ever read. He is loving and kind, protective and possessive and doesn't fear showing that.

Loved Toni and would love to read more about her and her story.

Like the previous books, One To Protect is a great book with an amazing story, that sucks you in. This is a very sweet love story with a lot of steamy moments.

Tia Louise is an amazing storyteller and can't wait to read One To Love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Series... 5+++++++++++++ Stars 20 April 2014
By Somertime Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Tia Louise did it again.. One to Protect is full of drama, suspense and best of all it is full of hot heavy sexy scenes. The characters are well developed and have a great chemistry. Derek and Patrick's bond only becomes stronger working on the most important case of their lives, protecting the ones they love. Tia also brings back previous characters which are both helpful but the very reason for Derek and Patrick problems. Derek and Patrick work against the clock to resolve their current problem before anything else bad happens.

Tia has mastered the bander between two alpha men who are as different as day and night. Derek is serious and no nonsense while Patrick is easygoing and fun. Derek and Patrick learn to appreciate each other ways which creates some very humorous moments between the two.

Great Job Tia... Can't wait until One to Love!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't find the word! 24 April 2014
By Loves to Read Romance - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is so ... WOW! I loved Derek and Melissa in "One to Hold" and am totally in love with them all over again. Derek is the Alpha of Alphas. No one, absolutely no one, is going to harm his fiancée, the mother of his unborn child, or that baby. Derek takes personal action to end the threat when all legal actions are exhausted. I *never* expected what happened to happen. It blew my mind, and even though it could be considered ... well, I don't want to spoil anything, but I personally was cheering it on. My one wish for the book would be a missing conversation; but it's still, ABSOLUTELY, a five star read!!!
