The Protector, an adaptation of Jodi Ellen Malpas’ 2016 suspense/romance novel, has debuted on Passionflix, the romance-movie subscription streamer.

Emma Rigby (Hollyoaks) and Diarmaid Murtagh (Vikings) star in this London-set story of a spoiled, strong, independent heiress and the hardened, complex, broken man hired to be her bodyguard. They’re so incompatible! Can you guess what happens?

Passionflix co-founder Joany Kane wrote the screenplay, with Passionflix co-creator/CEO Tosca Musk directing. They’ve previously teamed up on Driven and other Passionflix projects.

Passonflix also plans to adapt Malpas’ earlier three-novel series, This Man, to the screen.

Two-year-old Passionflix is available for $5.99 a month online and via Android, iOS and other apps. For more info, visit
