When a fake relationship turns real, this Navy SEAL learns that love can be deadly in this thrilling, fast-paced novel that proves "no one does romantic suspense like Diana Gardin" (Susan Stoker, New York Times bestselling author).

I'm a natural protector, whether I'm guarding political big shots or celebrity VIPs. It's true that I failed - once. When I was a SEAL, when it mattered most. But that's never going to happen again. Especially not during my first op with Night Eagle Security. So if there's one thing my new partner, Indigo Stone, should know, it's that she's safe in my hands....

Not that she wants my help. With amber eyes full of intelligence and a body covered in ink, Indigo is one of the toughest people I've ever met. But this job has us deep undercover, playing car thieves and lovers, and we'll have to become pros at faking it. But when feelings turn real, I'm reminded that emotions are dangerous... especially when one wrong move can be deadly.

4 out of 5 stars
Lawson and Indigo will be one of your favorite couples from this year. Lawson a trained, former-seal, turned FBI-esque level security does everything a certain way. He's calculated, and assessing--but nothing could have prepared him for Indigo.

Neither of them is looking to date--not looking to drag anyone into their troubled, complicated lives. But a mission helps them discover, they both want to be loved.

Lawson's character really appealed to my tastes. He was strong and hard-headed. He was aggressively passionate but tender-hearted. He was also fiercely protective--which I'm totally into!

I admired his ability to overcome his past. I appreciated that though he was closed off to relationships his heart wasn't. Indigo was pretty much the same.

She also was hardened by life but I liked the fact that she persevered. I admired that she allowed love and friendship to soften her heart. There was no unnecessary drama--and stupid arguments between the two.

I just loved these two and how quickly they came together without being insta-lovey.

A great solid read with sexy passionate moments. I mean the sex between these two--fan they self beforehand and after. Better yet grab a glass of water.

A nice addition to my slowly building repertoire of black romance. I might actually come back to this one when I'm in the mood.  


  1. That cover is A+++++! I love the sound of these two characters and their romance. I'm here for the sexy times! ;)

  2. Nothing wrong with a little steam now and then. ;) Glad you had fun with this one!
