that she can let the crazy out.
“All the more reason to get you out
of town,” Heath said quietly.
She shook her head. “No. I’m
staying.” Her words were brave, but her chest hurt. No way could she deal with
a serial killer all on her own. She could train every day for the rest of her
life and not end up as practiced or as deadly as Heath already was, and she
knew it. “I understand you have other cases and people after you. So leave, and
I’ll handle this myself.”
“Those are big words, baby,” he
Her lip quivered, and she bit down
on it. “I know. I promised her, Heath. It’s all I have left to give to her.”
He paused, understanding crossing
his expression. “Ah, sweetheart. Your sister wouldn’t want that for you.” His
voice turned velvety and soft. Soothing.
Anya nodded. “I know. But she was
my sister. We shared blood and part of a childhood. She took me
trick-or-treating when I was five, and it’s one of my best memories. Then when
I needed help as an adult, she didn’t hesitate. She came to me right away, like
family. She was the first person I really cared about in far too long, and it
hurts like hell that I got her killed.”
He breathed out, the emotion in his
She swallowed. “I have to do this
for her. Either you understand that or you don’t.”
“Why don’t you just let us handle
She pressed her point. “I could,
but you need me. I’m the bait.” Inwardly, she winced at the description. That
wouldn’t help her to convince him. “Also, here’s the deal. This could be a long
op. At some point, you have to leave and deal with whatever is haunting you
from your past. When you do, I’ll just challenge him again, and next time you
won’t be around to assist.”
“That’s extortion,” Heath said,
amusement curving his lip.
She grinned. “Apparently I’m
getting quite good at it.”
Heath shook his head. “You’re
putting me in an untenable position, baby.”
“No, I’m not.” She shrugged out of
his hold. Finally. “I’m not yours to protect, Heath. We’re not together, and
we’re not responsible for each other.” The words sliced through her even as she
said them. “You’ve been more than clear on that score.”
“There’s something here, Anya.
Maybe something real and lasting, if I get everything done I need to do.”
She blinked. “What’s that?”
“The less you know the better.
“What a bunch of bullshit. Go back
to your ‘This is fake’ proclamation,” she all but yelled. “Your position is one
of work . . . and this is just work.”
His chin lifted. “You think this is
just work?” The tone—low and filled with tension—zinged through her body.
Her legs trembled with the urge to
take a step back. “Yes.”
“Want me to prove otherwise?” His
eyes darkened to the color of the sky right before midnight hit.
As a threat, as a warning, it was
damn good. But she’d gone too far to give in now. “You can’t.” Yeah, she’d just
waved a red flag in front of a bull.
He didn’t move a muscle. His focus
on her was so absolute, she wanted to squirm. “You’re into challenging
dangerous men these days, aren’t you?”
She kept her stance. “You’re not
all that dangerous, Heath.”
His smile stole her breath. Then he
moved. Faster than she could track, he had her by the armpits and up in the air
as he carried her toward the bedroom with such speed that her legs
automatically wound around to clasp his rib cage. By the time she sucked in air
to protest, her butt was on the bed, and he was flattening himself over her.
She struggled, her body on fire,
fighting the urge to laugh out loud.
His mouth crushed hers, and she
He held nothing back, kissing her
hard, pressing her head into the comforter. His tongue worked hers, his
powerful body plastered against hers, and his hands dug into her hair to hold
her in place. Desire spun so quickly into need she couldn’t breathe, even when
he wasn’t controlling her mouth.
She shifted against him, closing
her eyes to kiss him back. This was what she’d wanted. All of this.
He nipped her lip, soothing the
slight pain with another kiss. Then he traced along her jawline, kissing and
nipping, finally reaching her earlobe, where he bit.
She arched against him, letting out
a soft sigh.
“Anya.” His fingers tangled in her
hair, and erotic pain tingled down her scalp. One of his strong arms slid
around her waist and then down. His palm spread across her butt, and he ground
her against his hard cock.
Pleasure swamped her, and mini
explosions flew through her sex. The idea passed, somewhat fleetingly, that he
wasn’t playing. Not at all.
Yet she couldn’t stop herself. Her
knees widened, and she rubbed against him. “This feels real,” she whispered.

Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase
Sullivan has his pick…
Together with her one year old daughter Maja, single mother Sofie Lund moves into the house she inherited from her grandfather. Sofie has such painful memories that she has had every trace of the old man removed, every trace but a locked safe that has been bolted to the basement floor. Inside the safe, Sofie finds something shocking that will also become crucial evidence in a case that has plagued Inspector William Wisting for a long time. To follow this lead though, he must cut across important loyalties and undermine confidence in the police force.
I enjoyed this book. William Wisting is a good main character. In regards to his daughter and him working together, it was a little hard to gauge how well they do work together as Line was trying to help protect her friend by withholding details about the case. However, back to William. He seems like a nice guy. Plus, he is a good detective.
The story was fine and the characters were alright. What I mean by this is that I did no…
