His Secrets Can Destroy Her
From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked by the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.
Her Love Can Save Him
Shane can’t remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside—or who he even is—but he knows something isn’t right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he’s ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew—one who carries such a deadly secret?
Quick & Dirty: A super soldier and an accountant, is his past catching up to her or is something else after her?
Opening Sentence: Shane settled against the cold block wall, engrossed in the television set across the room but forcing himself periodically to glance outside the darkened window.
Shane is a genetically enhanced supersoldier. Five years ago, Shane and his brothers broke away from their compound and struck out on their own. More than two years ago Shane met and married Josie, but one day he just up and left her. Today is the first time Josie has seen Shane in two years, he is in the hospital, beaten up and has temporary amnesia. She tries to tell him that she is divorcing him and has met someone newish, but Shane can’t remember and decides he needs to go home with her to help figure things out.
Before the night is over another attack is made on the house, and Shane and Josie are sort of on the run. After finding an empty house filled with pictures of her and some of Shane’s old stuff she knows he was stalking her for some reason and she flees. But when she is attacked at her friend’s house she knows that someone is really after her, and not him. When his brothers show up after Josie’s friend gets Shane arrested she knows things are about to get crazy.
Her office is broken into and ransacked, and she is kidnapped on the elevator by someone who is looking for files that weren’t in her office. This just confirms to Josie that it is about the accounts she took over for another employee, but when he is found dead she knows that this is serious. Someone is killing people because of these files, she needs to figure out what is going on. Before she can really get settled, Josie gets kidnapped again, but this time it’s the commander and they are looking for Shane. Will she be able to save the brothers without getting them caught again? Will they survive what is coming?
I couldn’t stop reading this book. Romance isn’t always my thing, but I really like Josie, and she let Shane have it. She wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself, and she was pretty bad in her own right. I thought Shane was interesting and certainly, for the environment, the brothers were raised in the author wrote them in a believable manner. The struggle to act the right way, to share or to even know exactly how he was feeling.
I really am glad these books are all out so I can read the other stories without waiting! Romance, mystery, military and super hot and super enhanced soldiers, sigh, what more can a girl ask for?
Killing was a philosophy to the guy. Panic heated her lungs–she had to get out of there before he killed her. Large bolt cutters perched on a sawhorse to her left. A power drill lay on the floor ahead of her. George held the saw. She toed off her three-inch heels as he admired the power saw in his hands. Was he imagining using the jagged blade on her? She shivered. Her thigh muscles bunched as she calculated the best way to take him down. Nothing seemed good.
