Shelter My Heart
From the Back Cover
Cash-strapped, twenty-three-year-old Jenny Lynch is rethinking her engagement. On the way home for a two-week vacation to see her family, she finds out her pregnant aunt is in critical condition. Bombarded by death since she was sixteen, Jenny's fear of those she loves dying drags her into a meltdown when she misses her connection and finds she can't afford an upgrade to First Class on the next flight--the only seat available--until a handsome stranger buys her way onto the plane.
Twenty-four-year-old cancer survivor Devon Soames has a weakness for damsels in distress. Caught up in a high-stakes subterfuge to inherit his dead father's conglomerate in order to provide for his disabled mother and twin sister, Devon has a secret that, if found out, could cost him everything.
In return for Devon's kindness, Jenny agrees to be his date for his family's annual society gala. They have two weeks to get to know each other and convince the board that Devon is going to settle down and marry. Two weeks are all Devon needs, and two weeks are all Jenny can give--until the stakes rise, forcing Jenny to answer the question: How far is she willing to go to save Devon's life?

Devon is immediately captivated by Jenny and she is also very attracted to him. When she calls him to pay back the ticket he bought, he asks her to be his date for an important gala that his family is hosting in two weeks and they start going out with the understanding that it will all end once the gala is over with. There are some twists and turns in the plot due to an attempt to force Devon out, as well as various health issues that crop up. They both have a lot of personal and professional issues to fight through in order to get their happy ending. Even though they are relatively young, I loved that they were both pretty mature in dealing with various difficult issues. I would definitely recommend this book.
When Jenny discovers the forces working against Devon, she is motivated to help him during the two weeks the emergency will have her back home. She has a lot to sort out--she's left her job and is less than thrilled at the idea of returning home to face her loveless relationship with her fiance. And she is more than a little tempted by sexy, sweet Devon.
As usual, L.G. O'Connor mixes romance and suspense, placing a well-written love story against the backdrop of intriguing family drama that holds a big twist and dovetails nicely with the other books in this wonderful series!
In return for Devon's help, Jenny agrees to be his date for his family's gala. It is a story line with several twists and surprises throughout the story.
