Welcome to the Instagram + Review Tour for Defending Honor  by Kelly Underwood presented by Lynette Eason,, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Defending Honor is another installment of Eason’s Elite Guardians Collection published by Sunrise Publishing. As expected the action begins almost immediately and doesn’t let up until the end. Plenty of unexpected twists and surprises leave readers wondering who wants to do away with Preston Whittaker as well as anyone close to him. Former Mossad agent Laila Rabbinowitz would like the answer to that also as she is assigned to protect him while trying to stay alive herself.

A page-turner indeed, Defending Honor was everything I expected. Excellent character development and escalating danger made the book an enjoyable read. An unwanted attraction between Laila and Preston added to the mix and it was fun to observe its development. Preston’s personal growth was especially encouraging.

As always I recommend anything by Lynette Eason and I love how she and other established authors are providing new authors an opportunity through Sunrise Publishing.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by JustReads Publicity. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


She’ll have to pretend to be his wife to save his life…but what will it cost her heart?

Laila Rabbinowitz is all business. Tough and stoic, she was the perfect Mossad agent…until a terrible betrayal led to her worst nightmare. Being a bodyguard with the Elite Guardians allows her to keep her heart safe—she’ll never let anyone close enough to betray her again. And she’s certainly not going to trust anyone who doesn’t earn it.

Billionaire and former playboy Preston Whittaker walked away from his famous family after a terrible event, but then his father and brother are killed in a suspicious boating accident. Since he’s next in line to helm the family business, now someone wants him dead. Preston needs someone by his side 24/7, and the only solution is a fake marriage.

In order to keep him safe, Laila will have to convince everyone that she and Preston are in love. She’s used to putting her life on the line for a client. But what will this case cost her heart?

Book three of the riveting, high-octane world of the Elite Guardians reboot!

Kelly Underwood’s favorite things are reading, writing, and drinking coffee. She was born in New Hampshire, but don’t ask her about snow, because she’s been a Florida girl since she was twelve. She writes book reviews for her blog bestinsuspense.com and is an active member of the Central Florida chapter of the American Christian Fiction Writers. She’s a sucker for a good suspense novel, the kind you have to read cover-to-cover until the mystery is solved and the bad guys are in handcuffs. If you’re looking for her, she’s probably on her back patio with a Kindle in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other.
