Show Description

Superstar Rachel Marron refuses to believe she’s in danger, but her newly hired bodyguard Frank Farmer thinks otherwise. Each one expects to be in charge, but what they don’t expect is to find their home in one another. An exhilarating romantic thriller, The Bodyguard features a list of irresistible hits including “One Moment in Time,” “I Have Nothing,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” and one of the best-selling songs of all time: “I Will Always Love You.”
