The Story Behind Born To Protect by Christina Tetreault

27 Aug 2018

By Christina Tetreault

Often when an author starts a book or a short story, the idea started circulating in their minds long before they typed the first sentence. At least for me sometimes, the idea actually starts years before I type the first word. In fact, this was the case with my newest release Born To Protect, which is the first book in my new Elite Force Security series.

The idea first came to me in 2016 while I was working on Protecting The Billionaire, the seventh book in my Sherbrookes of Newport Series. During the story, the book’s hero, Rock, meets with a good friend who tries to convince him to leave the military and join the security firm he now works for.  As you’ve probably already guessed, the good friend Rock met with was Connor Anderson my hero in Born To Protect. Almost immediately Connor called to me and kept telling me to write his story. Unfortunately, back in 2016, I did not know his whole backstory. Sure I knew he’d served in the military and now worked for a private security firm, but I knew nothing about his family or his childhood. Slowly Connor’s secrets came to me.  Still, before I could type a word I needed to find the perfect cast of coworkers at Elite Force and find Connor the perfect heroine. By the time I released A Promise to Keep, the fifth book in my Love on the North Shore series, in December 2017 I had everything I need.

Prior to Born To Protect I had only completed one romantic suspense novel, so I found writing the book more challenging than usual. Along the way I changed several scenes and tweaked a few characters however the heart of the story stayed the same. I love the way the story turned out and I think Connor and Becca are the perfect couple. I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
