Former Marine and current security specialist Ben Cabrera has just landed a great assignment guarding Christy Delacroix, the daughter of a gubernatorial candidate who has been the target of a stalker.  Christy is quite happy that Ben is her new bodyguard and figures she can finally have some fun.  Will they be able to maintain a professional relationship or will things turn personal?

Wild For Him is not specifically about one of the Wilde boys, it still has all the great elements of the other Wilde books.  It is a fast-paced and sensual read that will keep you engrossed from the first page. 


Wild For Him is the first title in the spin-off series of the Wilde books.  Ben is Joel Wilde’s best friend and former Marine buddy as well as one of his coworkers at Elite Security Specialists.   When Ben is given this assignment to guard Christy, he is not so sure he can keep this strictly professional.  During the assignment, Christy wants Ben to pretend to be her boyfriend for a special event.  This leads to the crazy stalker stepping up his game.  Everyone is thinking that the threats are from her former fiancé, to ruin her father’s campaign but Ben has other ideas about who might be behind these attacks.  In addition to the suspense and mystery of who the stalker might be, there are some really wonderful romantic scenes.  Ben has had his share of heartache and really tries not to get personally involved with Christy.   When the couple does get together, I really loved their chemistry.  Ms. Denison does a wonderful job in conveying their reluctance – Christy’s is due to her failed engagement and cold mother, and Ben’s is due to his guilt over his failure to protect his fiancée – as well as the blossoming love for each other.  Wild For Him is a wonderful continuation of the Wilde series--suspenseful, quick-paced, and romantic.  It is definitely one for the keeper shelf.
