To Protect & Serve is written by Staci Stallings. It is the first book The Courage Series.
Here is the book blub:
To save others’ lives, they will risk their own…
Houston firefighter, Jeff Taylor is a fireman’s fireman. He’s not afraid of anything, and no situation is too dangerous to keep him on the sideline if lives are at stake.
Lisa Matheson runs a semi-successful ad agency that’s on the brink of falling apart. Her employees are incompetent and her schedule has become exhausting. When she takes on a client with a brilliant idea for a big conference, she thinks that maybe, finally this is her lucky break. However, the fire station wasn’t what she had in mind for finding conference speakers. When she falls for a handsome but shy firefighter, it’s possible that life might just be going her way for a change. The only problem is she can’t control Jeff and the death wish he seems to have…
Here is what Staci has to say about her book and why she wrote it:
To Protect & Serve will always hold a special place in my heart. This book was not on “my” agenda to write. In fact, I was writing another book. A friend of mine had become interested in my writing process, which includes making a soundtrack and pulling pictures from the ‘net for characters. One of the characters for the original book was in a boy band in the 90’s. Well, as my friend perused the information I was accumulating, she “fell in love” with one of the other guys in the band. She kept asking when I was going to write HIS story. I tried to explain it didn’t work like that, but she kept at it. Finally, in frustration, I said to God, “Fine, if I was to write this other guy’s story, what would it be?” And the story literally dropped into my lap. Two days later I was standing in a fire station asking questions about the best way to cut a vent hole in a roof. Don’t ask me. Writing on God’s schedule and timetable can be kind of strange sometimes. Oh, and I’m really hoping some day I will be able to finish that original story I had started before I got sidetracked!
