Holy heck but Desiree Holt has outdone herself with this suspenseful romance.
After reading the first in the series I thought it would be hard to top that fantastic story but she has definitely done so. Lindsey Farrell and Nick Vanetta are absolute magic! Lindsey may have faced some hard times but she is used to handling things on her own and being the one everyone depends on so it was interesting to see how she handles losing control. I enjoyed catching glimpses into her dreams and how different her work and her family farm are. Nick is used to being entirely focused on his job and provides himself on never being distracted but seeing him dealing with his attraction and interest in Lindsey was fascinating. I enjoyed how the stalking angle slowly built and it was wonderful catching up with Quinn and Kate from the first story. Readers new to the series won't feel as if they missed anything, but I highly suggest they pick the first in the series if they haven't read it. Once again Ms. Holt mesmerized me with her fabulous character development, her intelligent scenario, the steamy heat and the sweet romance. When this is combined with every other fascinating element of this story it was no wonder I couldn't put it down. I have to say this is by far my favourite story by this author and if I could give it higher than a five star rating I would.
The Story: Lindsey has had some disruptions in her life but just when she is getting it and her business back in line she finds herself the victim of a stalker and there is nothing she can do about it so she hires a professional to help with the situation. As the boss Nick rarely does field work but this client intrigues him, he just needs to make sure he keeps her safe enough so they can explore their sizzling sexual attraction.
Just when architect Lindsey Ferrell thinks she's gotten her life back on track, the terrible nightmares return, and out of nowhere, a stalker sends a note to her office. Photos follow, then emails, and she can't dismiss the threat any longer. Hiring security seems the logical answer, but there's nothing logical about her body's reaction to the sinfully sexy expert bent on keeping her safe.
Guardian Security partner Nick Vanetta believes there's more behind the situation than a simple fixation, and he wonders if the answer is buried somewhere in her past. As they dig deeper into her family history, the sizzling attraction between them burns hotter and the job becomes much more than playing bodyguard to this headstrong woman. To protect the woman he loves, he must find the stalker...before it's too late.
