Restless and impulsive, Bruno Ranieri fits right in with the McClouds. And just like the McCloud brothers, Bruno has a dangerous past to contend with--one that's about to come crashing back into his life. . .
Bruno is working hard to keep his nose clean and save the family business. Not easy when the nightmares that plagued his childhood are hi-jacking what little rest he gets. Even harder when beautiful fugitive Lily Parr appears, on the run from assassins--and implying that Bruno is involved. But the violence that accompanies her is no illusion. Nor is the blisteringly hot desire that explodes between them.
After her father's suspicious death, and an attempt on her own life, snippets of information have led Lily to Bruno's door. . .and his charisma soon compels her into his bed. But with killers on her heels, running won't help--not with the terrifying secret lurking in Bruno and Lily's pasts. A secret their mysterious enemy will gladly destroy them to protect. . .

Bestseller McKenna strikes gold again with the steamy eighth romantic suspense (after Fade to Midnight) in the McCloud Brothers series. Bad dreams haunt Bruno Ranieri, Kev McCloud's adopted brother, and he's half-convinced they're real. Hooking up with sexy Lily Parr gives Bruno relief from nightmares, unless you count the three people who attack Lily. Bruno kills them and the pair take off. Lily's convinced her drug-addicted father's recent murder somehow links her past with Bruno's, but unraveling the truth calls for reinforcements, and soon the ex-military Special Forces McCloud brothers are facing down a super-scientist and his humanoid robots. Lots of references to previous McCloud escapades and characters obscure the thriller plot for those who haven't read the earlier novels, but the riveting story, frequent sex scenes, and believable science-fictional details will keep readers fully engaged.
