This book is book three of Men of “Roxbury House” Trilogy. I have been anxiously awaiting this one, Patrick O’Rourke’s story. I just love a Scotsman. (God, what a ridiculously, silly book cover.)
From Tarr’s website:Former Roxbury House orphan, Patrick O'Rourke is a rough and ready Scotsman as well as a successful self-made businessman. Lady Katherine Lindsey--Kate--is a beautiful English spinster, a gentlewoman. When she finds herself blackmailed into accepting a marriage of convenience with the handsome Scot, she lets Rourke see another side of her. Following a hasty wedding, Rourke sweeps a seething Kate from the elegant and refined drawing rooms of west London to his crumbling castle in the Scottish Highlands. The only guide he has to wooing and bedding the stubborn spitfire he's taken to wife is a copy of Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew." But as passion sparks between them, Rourke finds he may well be in danger of being tamed. Excerpt
Title: Extreme Danger
Author: Shannon Mckenna
I just love Shannon Mckenna. She writes such erotic love scenes and her heroes are always big alpha men.
From Mckenna’s website:Nobody's home at the millionaire's estate on remote Frakes Island. And nobody seems to be watching. Becca Cantrell dives in for an illicit midnight skinnydip--and gets hauled out by a towering, hard-muscled guy with burning dark eyes. He seems to be in charge. Good. The man is the embodiment of her most intense fantasies. And she's up for risky thrills . . .
Nick Ward can't tell her that he's spying on a vicious Russian crime boss. Becca could be his worst enemy: an assassin sent to kill him, a call girl sent to distract him, or the worst scenario of all--a clueless innocent. Anyway he looks at it, she's trouble: beautiful, bare, dripping-wet trouble. The kind he can't resist.
She's not scared. After one taste of his hot mouth, Becca soon discovers just how fearless she can be. She'll need it, too--because things are about to explode on Frakes Island, launching Becca and Nick into danger they could never have imagined--and a passion that could destroy them both. Exerpt
Title: No Control
Author: Shannon K. Butcher
Shannon K. Butcher debuted last year with No Regrets. I was one of my top reads for 2007 and I am definitely coming back for more.
From Butcher’s website:Lana Hancock knows all about danger -- and betrayal. Eighteen months ago, she was captured by a terrorist group known as the Swarm while one of its member, a rugged man with sinfully dark eyes, did nothing to help her. Now when she’s freed and desperate to put it all behind her, the unthinkable happens. The Swarm is targeting Lana once again and the man who stood silently by has become her protector. But can she trust him?
Delta Force operative Caleb Stone will never forget the hatred shining in Lana’s eyes. Ordered to take down the Swarm by infiltrating its ranks, Caleb couldn’t blow his cover to save her -- no matter how much it haunted him. Now, gifted with a second chance, he vows to move heaven and earth to protect her…and fulfill her every desire. But the Swarm has reorganized. It’s more powerful than ever and hell-bent on revenge… Exerpt
