Sheriff Zeke Monroe loves one woman...Honor McKinnon. He is willing to stake his entire future on protecting her...no matter what the cost.
Honor McKinnon knows she is broken. Her body and soul had been shattered by a violent attack years ago, and no one...not her sisters or anyone else in the tiny town of Paradise, especially the Sheriff...can change that. Rather than dealing with her wounds, she chooses to protect herself from any further damage, even if that means that she avoids the one chance at love. But Zeke is determined to break down Honor’s walls...and to find the persons responsible for hurting her and make them suffer.
He’s already killed for her once...and is willing to do it again if it means she'll know safety and happiness.
What happens when Zeke refuses to allow Honor to ignore her past? Will Zeke’s love be passionate enough to break down her barriers? And can Zeke save Honor when her life is in danger once again?

This was a new author to me. Not sure why I haven’t read Ms O’Rourke before but I will certainly be looking into her other books. I really enjoyed Man of Honor which is the story of Sherriff Zeke Monroe and Honor McKinnon and is a romantic suspense novel.
Zeke has always loved Honor, but she was shattered by violent attack when she was 16 which left her almost destroyed and refusing to allow herself to be open to a future with anyone. However, she doesn’t count on Zeke who is determined to help Honor confront her past and break down the walls she has built to protect herself.
Can Zeke succeed where others have failed? Will he be able to protect Honor when she finds herself in danger again? Or will Zeke turn to the other side of the law to revenge Honor?
I was invested in this book from start to finish. It was not an easy book to read at times as the subject matter was at times harrowing, however it was handled well and was in no way sensationalised by Ms. O’Rourke and was well written.
Zeke is my kind of guy, an alpha male who is also kind, caring, passionate and patient. He had to be, he has been in love with Honor for years. Honor amazed me with her strength and determination to survive and although she fought hard not to, to accept the happiness she so deserved.
