Jocelyn MacKenzie is an E.P.P (Executive Protection Professional) in short a female bodyguard and quite good at it. She would have to be as she used to be with the Secret Service. She knows she is good at what she does the only problem is with her personal life. She doesnít really have one at all, she is always working.

Dr. Donovan Knight is being stalked and his life is in danger. So what does one friend do for another friend, Dr. Mark Reeves hires Jocelyn to protect Donovan. Donovan has a heart of gold, always helping those in need. Only one problem, Mark didnít tell Donovan he hired Jocelyn for him until they arrived at Donovanís penthouse.

Needless to say that the sparks fly between Donovan and Jocelyn, from the moment Donovan opens the door. Jocelyn knows that her feelings towards Donovan could lead into carelessness and she has never been involved with a principal before, she has always kept to the shadow. But Donovan does not want her kept in the shadows at all; he wants her right there beside him.

So while Jocelyn is trying to stay focused on keeping Donovan safe, Donovan is trying to get to know the Jocelyn that gives him quick witty and sometimes sarcastic comebacks. But can Jocelyn take a risk with Donovan when the men in her life have left her scared? Can Donovan take a risk on giving his heart to someone with the experience life has handed him?

Sleeping With The Playboy is Julianne MacLeanís first foray into a modern day romance, her normal genre is historical. She entered into the foray with skill, giving all the elements we are looking for: the sexual tension and atmosphere, and witty dialogue from both the heroine and hero. Donít miss Sleeping With The Playboy, it is a highly pleasant read.
