About The Protector:

Salvation, Pennsylvania. The commune located in the small town was advertised as a modern Utopia: a place to live, share, and learn with other like-minded young people. Cate Pendleton’s sister was one of them. Now she’s dead—and Cate won’t rest until she finds out who killed her. Stonewalled at every turn, she approaches a DC Fixer for help and ends up with Damon Knox, a mysterious man with a secretive past. But Cate soon discovers that she not only needs Damon, she wants him, which isn’t good—for the attraction brewing between them will only lead to complications that can turn into danger . . .


Damon has tried to erase the hellish memories and the evil that happened in Salvation ever since he left a long time ago. Still, he can’t turn his back on Cate. As Damon works with Cate to uncover her sister’s killer, he finds himself drawn to her more and more. But how will she feel about him when she learns about his connection to the place?


Joining forces to uncover the truth, they must stay one step ahead of a cunning killer who’s bent on not being exposed.

Review for The Protector:

HelenKay Dimon wasn’t an author that I had on my radar, but when I read the synopsis for The Protector, I knew it was something that I definitely wanted to read.  I’ve always been intrigued by the cult culture, and over the years I’ve done a lot of research on the topic, including using it as the topic of one of my major thesis projects for my undergrad.  When I discovered that this was a romantic suspense novel, involving a cult that to the outside world looked like a college, I couldn’t start reading fast enough!

The Protector centers around Cate Pendleton, who is desperately working to find out what happened to her sister when she attended Sullivan College in Salvation, PA.  Cate is tenacious, smart, and willing to do anything that she can to catch a killer.  When she hits a point when she can’t go any further, and she suspects that someone is after her, she reaches out to Wren and his team.  Enter Damon Knox.  Damon is cocky, smart, and full of secrets.  He’s hesitant to help Cate, and pull her into his past that he’s kept locked up tightly and shared with very few people.

Together these two people formed a rather sassy pair.  Throughout the book the continued to spare with each other, while growing closer and closer together.  As they work together to find out what happened to Cate’s sister, a rather romantic relationship develops between the two.  Interspersed throughout moments of suspense and action, it kept me on the tips of my toes wondering what is going to happen.

Going into this one, I didn’t realize at first that it was the fifth in a series, but never once felt like that impeded by understanding or enjoyment of the novel.  All it meant for me, is that now I have a great backlist to go back to and read!
