Forever Safe by Jody Hedlund ~ Review

Forever Safe (Beacons of Hope, #4)My Review:

The only daughter of a wealthy businessman, and heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has lived a charmed life, and is preparing to complete the fairy tale by marrying Nathaniel a kind young with a family fortune of his own. But as the wedding draws closer, Victoria finds her life being threatened by malicious hi-jinks. So her father hires renown bodyguard, Tom Cushman to keep her safe. But as danger nears, they are forced to take drastic measures to keep Victoria safe, and she must trust Tom completely, marrying him temporarily for convenience and moving out to the coast where his parents keep a lighthouse, until the danger is past.

Will Victoria be able to face her fears and let go of the insecurities that haunt her?

The Cross of Hope comes full circle with the story of Victoria Cole, daughter of Isabelle and Henry from the very first novella in this fantastic series.

Victoria has always traveled in high society, keeping up with the latest fashions, and attending various parties, but when it comes to marriage she has never made it down the aisle in either of her previous attempts. Though pampered, and used to a privileged life, Victoria has a big heart for others, and is willing to give living at the lighthouse a try.

Tom Cushman has protected many clients in the past, even royalty, but none as young and enchanting as Victoria Cole. But when an old friend asks him as a favor to take the job, he can't refuse. Tom is an honorable man, stealthy, and observant, who is skilled at his job, and is ready to take every precaution in order to keep Victoria safe.

This was a fast moving read, and I could scarce put it down, the plot was well done, and every page tingled with tension. The chemistry between Victoria and Tom was strong, and their relationship grew throughout the storyline. I really liked how Victoria learned to live at the lighthouse, and found that she didn't need all the things that she had before to be happy. And Tom's parents were incorrigible!

Overall, a well crafted story that I loved beginning to end, I loved the suspense and romantic tension. Victoria grows and in a way it is a coming of age, because she learns to stand up and fight for who she loves. An utterly fantastic conclusion to the Beacons of Hope Series, I would highly recommend it!
