Heath and Dracon are fantasy come to life. They have incredible bodies and know how to use them to bring her extreme pleasure…over and over again. None of them want the night to end. So imagine their surprise when they find out they’re to be partnered, a new triad squad that could be the future of the Enforcers.
Is it possible to mix business with pleasure? Emma can’t wait to find out.
With a fun and feisty kick-butt heroine, Enforced Love dispels old prejudices and shows exactly what a woman can do in a man's world, even a futuristic one. Coupling a fun plot, great characters and some deliciously hot love scenes, Lacey Thorn's Enforced Love is a fast-paced fun read.
Emma is the only female enforcer. She worked hard to earn her position and has finally gained the attention of her superiors who have just promoted her. A celebratory night on the town, before she ships off, introduces her to Dracon and Heath. After a night of lots of fun and little sleep the three part ways only to later discover they are to be partnered for the next six weeks in one of the most dangerous quadrants in the territories.
As the only female enforcer Emma has been placed in a rather conspicuous position. She never set out to be a crusader for women, but to some extent that is what she has become. Emma is a modern woman, but she also reminds me of the suffragettes of the past. "Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail no one will say "she doesn't have what it takes" they will say "women don't have what it takes."' Clare Boothe Luce. Emma says as much to her new partners, not quite as eloquently but just as effectively. What's great about Emma is that she's not crusading, she just does her job and does it well, that speaks loud enough, most of the time. When people still need convincing she's not above kicking butt and taking names.
Dracon and Heath have been partners for a long time, and are reluctant to add a third member to their team especially a female. While they are not happy to be adding a female to their team, they are also not blindly chauvinistic in their beliefs. After getting over the initial shock of who Emma is and seeing some of her abilities, they are quite adaptive to the idea of her partnering with them. While Dracon is more vocal of the two it is actually Heath who is the alpha of this duo, he quietly steers things along to his liking. This causes some problems when Dracon and Emma find out that Heath has been keeping secrets. Ultimately it is up to Emma to decide if the three of them can be partners both in work and play.
Dracon and Heath are both well written characters; they are much more than your standard issue street soldiers. Emma is fun and feisty with exuberance for both her work and her life. With red hot romance, wonderfully written characters, and an intriguing plot this book has everything.
