Vegas showgirl, Brandy Tate, is on the run from the mob and the FBI. When stoic FBI agent, Ridge Coltrane, tracks her down he puts them both in danger until a mysterious stranger named Trey rescues them. Brandy opens her heart…and her bed…to both men. Will her desire to trust end in heartache, or will it introduce her to a world of seductive delights at the hands of two men?
She’s not about to testify against a member of organized crime, unless Ridge has anything to say about it. He’s not ready to accept his desire for her, unless Brandy takes things into her own hands—with a bit of divine help. Read Triple Threat to find out the whole story.
Ms. Varano writes a sweeping story that captivates the reader from page one. You can’t put this story down. Although it’s a bit difficult to keep the characters straight in the early goings, once you get to the meat of the story, you see it’s best that way.
The antagonist is everything you want in a bad guy. He’s done something awful and wants nothing more than to cover his own buns.
Now this story involves three people. To heal the hurt between Ridge and Brandy, we meet the elusive Trey. He’s shown up in a few other stories, but his presence makes the story complete. Ridge, though and FBI agent, has lost a lot in his life – a special person he guarded and his wife. He’s got a thick layer of steel around his heart. Even though he’s hurting and a little angry, you want to help him get past his mistakes and be the hero he needs to be. I like Brandy as the heroine. She comes across a little helpless and weepy at times, but once you learn her story, you want to see her succeed. The readers can identify with her hardships and her determination. And what’s better than a heroine determined to be with her man?
The love scenes in this story steam and sizzle. As you see the hurt subside and become desire, you feel the passion burning between Ridge and Brandy. Trey’s motivation becomes clear and you root for him to find his happily ever after as he helps the couple mend their broken hearts and spirits.
If you want a story that will stay with you long after you close the screen, then you need to read Triple Threat. This is a tale you won’t want to miss. I give it 4 cherries.
