Heath is surprised when information on a hit leads him to Cadie. He hasn’t seen her in two years, and during that time, she’s been the star of his most erotic fantasies. Persuading her that he and his brother Wyatt are the men who will protect her is nearly impossible. His only recourse is to take her as his hostage, and when he does Heath realizes that a threesome affair is as inevitable as losing his heart to her.
Lust was what she felt the first time Cadie laid eyes on Heath. Now he’s back in her life with intentions of protecting her. But Cadie has never acted like a helpless female. Heath has other plans though, and takes her as his hostage. Surrounded by Heath and Wyatt, it’s impossible not to act out on the desire she feels for both, and it doesn’t surprise her one bit when she begins to fall in love.
With a will made out of steel, Wyatt holds back the raw, carnal feelings he has for Cadie. The last thing he wants to do is cause a rift with his brother. But Cadie is a temptation he can’t control. He’s falling in love with her, and he’s surprised when Heath notices. But he’s even more stunned when Heath’s willing to share her forever.
This book is a good suspense read with some hot menage romance to tickle the readers fancy too. Cadie is a former police officer who has someone trying to kill her. She is strong, confident, and not really predisposed to acting the part of helpless female. Thus the reason that she becomes a hostage of Heath and his brother Wyatt, a couple of private detectives who want to keep her alive and find the killer.
Heath is a former lover who never forgot about Cadie and Wyatt is his just-as-hot brother who finds Cadie just as attractive. It is easy to understand,, based on their past history how quickly Heath and Cadie fall back into a relationship. The relationship and strong feelings with Wyatt seem to happen a little quickly, but I can't blame the girl for taking advantage when the opportunity presented itself.
Over all this story was a very enjoyable read. The suspense ending was a surprise, and the romance was hot. I discovered that although it is not numbered and stands well alone, this story is part of a short series by this author. I certainly would like to read the previous books and would recommend this one to others as well.
