Nobody’s home at the millionaire’s estate on remote Frakes Island. And nobody seems to be watching. Becca Cantrell dives in for an illicit midnight skinnydip–and gets hauled out by a towering, hard-muscled guy with burning dark eyes. He seems to be in charge. Good. The man is the embodiment of her most intense fantasies. And she’s up for risky thrills . . .
Nick Ward can’t tell her that he’s spying on a vicious Russian crime boss. Becca could be his worst enemy: an assassin sent to kill him, a call girl sent to distract him, or the worst scenario of all–a clueless innocent. Anyway he looks at it, she’s trouble: beautiful, bare, dripping-wet trouble. The kind he can’t resist.
She’s not scared. After one taste of his hot mouth, Becca soon discovers just how fearless she can be. She’ll need it, too–because things are about to explode on Frakes Island, launching Becca and Nick into danger they could never have imagined–and a passion that could destroy them both.
This is an oldie but goodie for me. I read it at the beginning of my romance stage, so this author will always have a special place in my heart.
Nick is an ex-Fed trying to live down a string of professional bad calls. They eat away eat him terribly. He’s a man whore and has never had a meaningful relationship. When he’s undercover, he runs into a beautiful woman who fastly becomes his whole entire world.
Becca is a self admitted good girl. She doesn’t rock the boat at all. After her ex’s betrayal, she tries to take a small trip to get away from it all. She stumbles into the middle of an undercover situation that’s truly monstrous. The only person she can trust is a man who may be every bit as bad as the monsters.
Shannon McKenna was at the top of her game when this series first started. She went off the deep end with the mind control drugs and I stopped reading her. If you love humor, suspense, blistering sex scenes and filthy mouthed alpha males, read McKenna. She knows how to get it done.
