Blurb from goodreads:
Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who’s opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hand’s off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn’t willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion, might just be the death of them both.
Lauren Reynolds is a beautiful brunette assistant DA, her best friend Julie is a blond bombshell divorce attorney and instigator. We meet these two beauties at Lauren’s fathers birthday party where they are discussing Lauren’s need (or not) to find a man. Therein we find one of my favorite conversations in this book, a description of Royce Walker just before he is introduced to Lauren.
“He’s your midnight fantasy,” she said, a wicked smile on her lips. “Or so a certain brunette told me just last weekend, after a few glasses of wine.”
Royce Walker. She was talking about Royce Walker. Lauren’s throat went dry at the mention of the sexy State Security Advisor who also ran a private security company with his two brothers. And, most definitely, had been the object of her ‘midnight fantasies’ on more than one occasion.
“He’s here tonight?”
“Over here, Royce!” Julie called out, and then grinned. “He’s not only here, he’s headed our way. You can thank me later.”
Thus begins this tale of political intrigue, high profile death penalty cases, sprinkled with hang-up calls and notes implying the worst.
Royce and Lauren begin a relationship. But, Royce has a secret, one that if told, would make keeping her safe impossible.
Adding to this, her father is a Senator with a controlling trophy wife, an ambitious Step-brother and an ex-fiancé. All who have their own delusions of what Lauren should being doing and with whom.
Another wonderfully hot, sexy, twisted plot from Lisa Renee Jones, earns another five stars from me.
